2022-23 NCAA College Basketball Regular Season Game

Date: Tuesday, Dec. 6, 2022

The 2022-23 NCAA college basketball season continues on Tuesday, Dec. 6, including an interconference meeting between the UNC Greensboro Spartans and No. 9 Arkansas Razorbacks.

UNC Greensboro finally put its losing ways to bed on Saturday, ending a three-game skid with a 65-61 victory over Elon. Meanwhile, Arkansas was busy asserting its dominance over San Jose State that same day, walking out with the 99-58 blowout win.

Can UNC Greensboro keep the ball rolling in a tough road matchup? Or will Arkansas build on its own momentum with its fourth straight win of the season?

UNC Greensboro vs Arkansas Prediction & Pick

There's little reason to believe that UNC Greensboro is capable of an upset tonight. The Spartans were held to 58 or fewer points during their losing streak before beating a putrid Elon team that's only 1-8 this season.

Assuming that UNC Greensboro's scoring woes continue, Arkansas shouldn't break a sweat. The Razorbacks average 79.9 PPG (No. 32), which has improved to an 83.7 PPG clip over the last three games. Furthermore, they also hold opponents to just 56.2 PPG on 36.7% shooting at Bud Walton Arena.

Arkansas' well-balanced play has led to the team boasting the 14th-best scoring margin (plus-17.5) in the United States. With UNC Greensboro being a minus-5.5 on the year (No. 254) and minus-10.0 over its last three games, I don't believe that Arkansas' winning streak is in danger.

Back the Razorbacks winning tonight in a decisive fashion.

Final Score Prediction: Arkansas: 83 | UNC Greensboro: 62

UNC Greensboro vs Arkansas Best Bet

It seems tough at first glance, but I can see Arkansas covering the 19.5-point spread tonight. After all, UNC Greensboro is a putrid 1-7 ATS this season in addition to failing to cover the spread in 12 of its last 13 games dating back to last year. Even worse, the Spartans have lost 10 straight games to SEC teams.

Meanwhile, Arkansas has covered the spread in four of its last seven games with a pull in between. Considering how the Razorbacks have dominated the competition at home, beating the struggling Spartans by at least 20 points shouldn't be an issue.

Bet: Arkansas -19.5 (-110)
