No 12 Florida Gators vs. Arkansas Razorbacks Preview

In their last games Florida beat Alabama 61-52 while Arkansas lost to Tennessee 77-58.

This season Florida is 10-10-1 with an O/U record of 13-8 and Arkansas is 7-10-1 ATS with an O/U record of 8-9-1.

The Razorbacks are 17-1 at home this season while the Gators are only 3-5 on the road. Arkansas has won 15 straight at home and in their house this season they are beating team by an average of almost 15 points per game. The Razorbacks have already beaten 3 ranked teams at home this season.

Florida has beaten Arkansas 8 of the last 9 times they have faced each other.

The key in this game my be the 3-pointer, as the Gators lead the nation in 3-pointers made while at home this season Arkansas is playing good perimeter D holding opponents to a 3-pt FG% of 27.5%.

Even though the Razorbacks have struggled lately they are getting good play from freshman G B.J. Young (14.5 ppg), but he will need some help on offense in this SEC game. [soliloquy id=”82219″]

Florida is led by the backcourt trio of Kenny Boynton (17.2 ppg), Bradley Beal (14.3 ppg) and Erving Walker (11.7 ppg). Boynton and Walker really struggled in their last game and they need to get back on track in this game.

F Will Yeguete (concussion) and G Mike Rosario (hip pointer) may be back for this game after missing some time with injuries.

The Razorbacks are on the bubble of the Big Dance and if they win this game it will look fantastic on their post-season resume.

In some betting trends for this SEC game Florida is 4-11 ATS in their last 15 games as a road favorite, 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games following a ATS win, and they have an Under record of 4-1 in their last 5 road games.

Arkansas is 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 home games, 15-5-1 ATS in their last 21 games as a home underdog, and they have an Over record of 9-4 in their last 13 home games.

Jason’s Pick: The Razorbacks seem to be a different beast at home and even though Florida is coming off a win and have a great backcourt Arkansas will play good D and win this game and cover the spread.
