What to Know

The Cent. Arkansas Bears will wrap up 2021 with a road trip to face off against the Texas A&M Aggies at 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday at Reed Arena. Both teams are sauntering into the matchup backed by comfortable wins in their prior games.

Cent. Arkansas simply couldn't be stopped last Monday, as they easily beat the Hendrix College Warriors at home 90-56.

Meanwhile, A&M was totally in charge on Monday, breezing past the Dallas Christian Crusaders 102-52 at home.

The Bears have to know they'll be fighting an uphill battle given the 27.50 point spread they are up against. Those betting on them against the spread shouldn't have high expectations for them since the team is 3-7 ATS when expected to lose.

Cent. Arkansas is now 2-9 while A&M sits at a mirror-image 9-2. A pair of stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Cent. Arkansas has allowed their opponents an average of 8.6 steals per game, the 12th most in college basketball. To make matters even worse for the Bears, the Aggies enter the matchup with 10.8 steals per game on average, good for fifth best in college basketball. In other words, Cent. Arkansas will need to work extra hard to take care of the ball.
