Colgate vs. Arkansas NCAA Prediction
The point spread for Friday afternoon’s NCAA Tournament matchup between Colgate and Arkansas dropped from Razorbacks -10 to -8.5. Is Colgate worth a look as a live dog or is there a better option on the board?
735 Colgate Raiders (+8.5) at 736 Arkansas Razorbacks (-8.5); o/u 161

Colgate vs. Arkansas NCAA Tournament Prediction
The Raiders are 6-2 against the spread in their last eight games overall, have covered in six of their last eight games coming off a win and are 19-7 at the betting window in their last 26 games versus an opponent with a winning record. Colgate has also cashed in seven of its last 10 games when listed as the underdog.
Meanwhile, the Razorbacks are just 3-8 at the betting window in their last 11 NCAA Tournament games and while they were one of the hotter teams entering the SEC Tournament a week ago, LSU proved that Arkansas has some flaws defensively. The Hogs should win, but I like the Raiders to cover.
