Arkansas at Texas A&M -5.5 O/U 146.5
Recommendation: Texas A&M
Have not been impressed at all with Arkansas through the first half of SEC play. The Razorbacks are 4-4 with two wins coming in overtime and the other two by a bucket and four points. In terms of efficiency, they are -0.07 which equates to -5 points in a 70 possession game. They enter tonight's game on a very fortunate three-game winning streak. They needed to shoot 11-for-22 from deep and 28-for-35 from the free throw line to get past a mediocre Ole Miss squad at home, 97-93. They limped past a very weak Georgia squad in double overtime. And then this past weekend, escaped with a 66-65 win over Oklahoma State in which the Cowboys had multiple point-blank looks in the closing seconds but couldn't convert. Meanwhile, Texas A&M looked like an SEC contender early on with dominating wins over West Virginia, Oklahoma State, Penn State, USC and a narrow 67-64 loss to Arizona. The Aggies got nailed with the injury bug and opened SEC play 0-5. The currently sit 2-6 with two of those six losses coming by a single point including a 69-68 loss at Kentucky. It's difficult in the current market climate to find many "buy low" situations but Texas A&M is a quality squad in an excellent spot for an A-effort tonight in College Station.
