On the other side of this matchup is the Arkansas Razorbacks who sit with a 9-2 record overall but they come into this game having lost two in a row. In the last game against Tennessee, Arkansas scored 74 points which is impressive against that defense, but they gave up 79 points and that led to the defeat. Arkansas on the season is averaging 87.2 points per game while their defense is giving up 67.1 points per game. Arkansas is going to need the offense to be strong again in this game, especially early if they want to win this game comfortably.Guard Moses Moody has been the star of the show for Arkansas averaging 15.9 points while shooting 44.1 percent from the field and 40.7 percent from behind the three point line.
The over is 8-1-1 in Georgia’s last 10 road games. The over is 5-2-1 in Georgia’s last eight games against the SEC. The over is 21-4-1 in Arkansas last 26 games overall. The over is 20-5-1 in Arkansas last 26 games against the SEC. Georgia is 2-6 against the spread in their last eight meetings against Arkansas.
These are two teams that like to run and there is going to be no shortage of scoring in this game. Look for an up tempo game that is going to go well over the total. Back the over to cash in this game.
