Free Arkansas Razorbacks vs. Kentucky Wildcats NCAAB Prediction:
This game is going to be a lot closer than a lot of fans expect. Arkansas is one of the more high scoring offenses Kentucky has faced all season.
They also have been able to play some impressive defense, but we’ll just have to see how they fare against a team as dominant as the Wildcats.

Although I don’t see them doing enough to come away with an upset on the road, I think the Razorbacks will score enough points to cover the spread. I like the underdog on the road here.
