Why Arkansas can cover
Arkansas might have lost the first meeting between these teams, but LSU has been in a downward spiral since that contest. The Tigers are riding a six-game losing streak, with the latter five losses all coming by double digits. They were blown out by Tennessee in a 77-56 final on Saturday, marking the fifth straight game that they failed to cover the spread.
The Razorbacks got back on track with a 69-57 win against Ole Miss on Saturday, as Anthony Black had game highs of 17 points, eight assists and five steals. It was a balanced effort from Arkansas, with Davonte Davis (16), Jordan Walsh (13) and Joseph Pinion (13) each scoring in double figures as well. The Razorbacks have gone 18-1 in their last 19 home games and have won nine of their last 12 home games against LSU.
Why LSU can cover
LSU trailed Arkansas by six points midway through the second half of their first meeting this season, but the Tigers rallied and picked up a win. The Razorbacks shot just 36.9% from the floor and gave up 13 points on 10 turnovers, as senior guard Trae Hannibal led LSU with 19 points on 9 of 14 shooting off the bench. Senior forward KJ Williams leads LSU with 17.8 points and 7.1 rebounds per game overall this season, scoring in double figures in six straight games.
Sophomore guard Adam Miller, a transfer from Illinois, is averaging 11.8 points and 2.2 rebounds per game. He is facing an Arkansas team that has lost four of its last five games, with three of those losses coming by double digits. The Razorbacks have only covered the spread once in their last seven games, so they have not proven that they are worthy of being favored by this many points.
