What to Know
The UNC-Asheville Bulldogs' road trip will continue as they head to Bud Walton Arena at 9 p.m. ET Wednesday to face off against the #10 Arkansas Razorbacks. Both teams come into the contest bolstered by wins in their previous games.
UNC-Asheville escaped with a win this past Saturday against the E. Tennessee State Buccaneers by the margin of a single free throw, 74-73.
Meanwhile, while not quite a landslide, the game between the Razorbacks and the Bradley Braves this past Saturday was still a pretty decisive one as Arkansas wrapped it up with a 76-57 win. Arkansas' guard Jordan Walsh looked sharp as he had 18 points.
UNC-Asheville is the clear underdog, so they're hoping it's the size of the fight that determines this one. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread, however, as they are currently on a two-game streak of ATS wins.
UNC-Asheville is now 8-4 while Arkansas sits at 10-1. A couple numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: The Bulldogs are ninth worst in college basketball in turnovers per game, with 15.6 on average. To make matters even worse for UNC-Asheville, Arkansas ranks 13th in college basketball when it comes to takeaways, with 18.6 on average. So the cards are definitely stacked in Arkansas' favor.
