Minnesota vs. Arkansas Pick

Minnesota vs. Arkansas College Basketball Predictions Against The Spread

Is No. 14 Minnesota in danger of being upset when it goes on the road to take on Arkansas tonight at 6:45PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Arkansas is favored at home tonight, as the Razorbacks are getting odds of -3.5 points against Minnesota. The over/under total for the game has been set at 165 points. Today’s game takes place from Bud Walton Arena in Fayetteville, Arkansas and will air live on the SEC Network.

Minnesota is coming off a 78-68 loss at Nebraska earlier this week to fall to 8-2 on the season. The Gophers are 6-3 against the spread, failing to cover in two of their last three contests. Minnesota is scoring 87.3 points per game this season while giving up 71.9 per contest on defense. Jordan Murphy is leading the team with 19.9 points and 12.8 rebounds per game while Nate Mason is adding 15.7 points and 4 rebounds per game.

Arkansas is coming off a 92-66 win over Colorado State earlier this week to improve to 6-2 on the season. The Razorbacks are 5-3 against the spread and 3-1 ATS at home. Arkansas is averaging 87.2 points per game on offense while allowing 74.8 per contest on defense. Jaylen Barford is leading Arkansas with 19.6 points and 3.1 assists per game while Daniel Gafford is adding 12 points and 5.8 rebounds per game.

Bet on Minnesota vs. Arkansas

These two have split their last two meetings straight up and against the spread. Minnesota won the meeting last year, 85-71, at home. Minnesota is 3-0-1 against the spread in its last 4 against SEC opponents and 5-1 ATS in their last following a failed cover. Arkansas is 2-6 against the spread in their last eight games following a cover. The public betting is slightly with Arkansas, but I think the Gophers find a way to cover on the round. I feel Minnesota has the better balance on offense and the better rebounding.
