This SEC/Big East tilt is slated to get underway at 3:15 p.m. (ET) and it will be broadcast nationally on ESPN.

Arkansas was not considered a top team in the SEC before the season started, but a 5-1 start straight-up (0-1 against the spread) and a win on Saturday would have to open some eyes. The problem is that the Razorbacks have built this record against the likes of Grambling State and Utah Valley. They lost to Houston 87-78 as 8.5-point home favorites in the only game with a posted line.

If they are to have any chance to upend the defending national champs, the Razorbacks will need Marshawn Powell and B.J. Young to come up big as the top two scorers on the team. Powell also leads the team in rebounding with an average of six a game. [soliloquy id=”82219″]

Connecticut bounced-back from a stunning 68-63 loss to Central Florida as a seven-point favorite last Friday with a 78-76 overtime victory over Florida State the next night as a one-point underdog in the Battle 4 Atlantis Tournament. The Huskies come into this game at 6-1 SU but are just 1-3 ATS.

The Huskies’ big three this season consists of Jeremy Lamb, Shabazz Napier, and Ryan Boatright. Lamb leads the team in scoring with 21.1 points a game, while Napier is chipping-in 17.9 points and dishing-out a team-high six assists a game. Boatright is third in scoring with an average of 14 points a game.

Arkansas has a solid team that can put the ball in the hoop, but it has yet to be tested this season and will suddenly find itself in over its head on the road against Connecticut come Saturday afternoon.

The Pick: Connecticut 69 vs. Arkansas 54
