Vanderbilt vs. Arkansas Pick

Will Vanderbilt be able to get past Arkansas? SEC Predictions 3/11/17

Can Arkansas slow down the surging Vanderbilt team when the two meet up today at 3PM ET in the SEC Tournament semifinal?

According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Vanderbilt is the slight favorite today, as the Commodores are getting odds of -2 points against Arkansas. The over/under total for the game is listed at 144.5 points. These two split the two meetings during the season, with the road team winning in both cases. Today’s game will be held from Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee.

Vanderbilt has been rolling along, picking up a 72-62 OT win over Florida yesterday to advance to the semifinals. The Commodores are now 19-14 on the season and they have covered the spread in eight straight games to get to 20-11 against the spread on the season. Vandy is averaging 71.5 points per game on offense while allowing 67.9 on defense. Matthew Fisher-Davis is leading the team with 13.8 points per game while Luke Kornet is adding 13.4 points and 6.2 rebounds per contest.

Arkansas is coming off a 73-72 win over Ole Miss last night. The Razorbacks have won two straight and seven of their last eight to improve to 24-8 on the season. Arkansas is 16-14 against the spread this season as well. The Razorbacks are averaging 80.4 points per game on offense while allowing 74.1 on defense. Dusty Hannahs is leading the team with 14.6 points per game while Moses Kingsley adds 11.9points and 7.7 rebounds per game.

Bet on the SEC Tournament

I would suggest continuing to ride the Vanderbilt train. The Commodores have been playing at a high level for nearly a month now, beating Florida twice and having its only loss being by 6 at Kentucky. The team is clearly peaking right now and making the most of its opportunity to reach the NCAA Tournament. Vandy should be able to slow down the Arkansas offense and find a way to cover today.
