College Basketball Tips for Kentucky vs. Arkansas
Before you tune in to the Arkansas vs. Kentucky game, you must check out college basketball tips from SportsLine’s advanced computer model. The SportsLine projection model simulates each Division I college basketball game 10,000 times. The model enters Week 17 of the 76-46 season with this season’s best college basketball picks, raking in over $1,600 for $100 players. Everyone who has followed him has seen huge returns.
For Arkansas vs. Kentucky, the model predicts the Wildcats will cover the spread. Kentucky ended its four-game winning streak Wednesday with a narrow loss to Vanderbilt, but the Commodores have been quietly one of the hottest teams in the SEC, winning seven of their last eight games. Kentucky’s four-game hot streak included victories over then-No. 10 Tennessee and Auburn, knocking the Wildcats back into the national standings.
Their win over Auburn was one of their most impressive performances of the season as they went 11 points clear at halftime and outscored the Tigers by 21 points in the second half. Senior forward Oscar Tshiebwe led four starters in double digits with 22 points and 17 rebounds and converted eight of 10 shots from the floor. The reigning international of the year averages 16.5 points and 13.1 rebounds and has double-doubles in four of his last five games.
Arkansas has gone in the wrong direction, losing two straight games and four of the last six. The Razorbacks were overwhelmed by Tennessee on Tuesday, shooting 36.7% from the floor and turning the ball 16 times. Kentucky has covered the spread in five of their last six road games, a reason why the model covers the Wildcats in well over 50% of the latest sims. Stream the game here.
