LSU Tigers vs Arkansas Razorbacks

Where: Bud Walton Arena, Fayetteville, Arkansas

We have the makings of a tremendous Southeastern Conference basketball game when the Tigers of LSU visit Fayetteville and a contest with the Arkansas Razorbacks. LSU is 1-0 in conference play and has begun conference play with a 1-1 record.

LSU is 1-0 in SEC Play

LSU got their first conference win of the season after defeating Alabama 88-79. Sophomore guard Tremont Waters scored 19 points with seven assists and four rebounds and freshman guard Javonte Smart came off the bench to score 15 points with five assists and four rebounds including going 3-5 from three point land. The Tigers scored 49 percent from the floor, 66 percent from long range and 81 percent from the charity stripe in their huge win over Alabama.

The Tigers aren’t showing any injuries on their injury report for Saturday’s game with Arkansas.

The Tigers score an average of 81 points and allow an average of 70 points per game this season. LSU is shooting 49 percent from the field, 34 percent from long range and 74 percent from the charity stripe.

Arkansas Loses at Home to Florida

Arkansas has started SEC conference play with a 1-1 record and left the ranks of the undefeated when they lost Wednesday night at home to Florida, by a score of 57-51. Sophomore guard Mason Jones scored 30 points with three assists and sophomore forward Daniel Gafford scored nine points and grabbed 12 caroms. The Razorbacks had an awful shooting night, shooting 30 percent from the field, 23 percent from long range and 57 percent from the charity stripe in their home loss to Florida.

Arkansas isn’t listing any injuries on their injury report for their game Saturday with LSU.

Arkansas scores an average of 79 points and allows an average of 69 points per game. The Razorbacks are shooting 44 percent from the floor, 34 percent from three-point land and 64 percent from the free throw line. Arkansas averages 39 rebounds, 17 assists and 13 turnovers per game this season.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Its a pick em and I’m going to side with the home team in this one.  After being smacked on the nose at home, Arkansas should be ready to impose their will in this game. Arkansas takes better care of the ball than LSU does and probably has a bit better defense. I will roll with the Razorbacks on Saturday.

Prediction: Arkansas

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

If Arkansas is going to win, and I believe that they will, they will win in a shootout because LSU knows how to score points. Both sides average over 70 possessions per game and that is fast enough to exceed that total. Finally, both sides are above average shooting teams and we have a perfect recipe for going over the total on Saturday evening.

Prediction: Over 154 Points
