Current Records: Alabama 13-2; Arkansas 12-3
What to Know
The #4 Alabama Crimson Tide have enjoyed the comforts of home their last two games, but now they must head out on the road. The Crimson Tide and the #15 Arkansas Razorbacks will face off in an SEC battle at 7 p.m. ET Wednesday at Bud Walton Arena. Bama should still be feeling good after a big win, while Arkansas will be looking to regain their footing.
Bama made easy work of the Kentucky Wildcats this past Saturday and carried off a 78-52 victory. Bama's guard Mark Sears looked sharp as he had 16 points along with six steals and six boards.
Meanwhile, Arkansas ended up a good deal behind the Auburn Tigers when they played this past Saturday, losing 72-59. Guard Jordan Walsh had a pretty forgettable game, finishing with only six points on 2-for-10 shooting in his 32 minutes on the court.
Barring any buzzer beaters, the Crimson Tide are expected to win a tight contest. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a three-game streak of ATS wins.
Bama's victory brought them up to 13-2 while the Razorbacks' loss pulled them down to 12-3.
