Why Bet on the Alabama Crimson Tide?
The Crimson Tide are on a comfortable hot streak and sitting safely on top of the SEC standings with a 13-1 record and an 18-5 overall record to secure the top spot for the fast-approaching SEC tournament. They hope to continue this strong run when they face Arkansas and at the same time maintain the advantage in the NCAAB betting odds.
Alabama is three-and-a-half-games in front of the Razorbacks, giving them adequate wiggle room to move around in. The Crimson Tide can play with their line-up a bit more than usual, giving key players rest and bench players hard-earned playing minutes.
Even so, they can’t let their guard down as they recently showed defensive weak points. If they do so, they can bring home the road win at the end of the day.
Why Bet on the Arkansas Razorbacks?
The other end of the spectrum shows an Arkansas team beginning to gain some more traction after winning four straight games and collecting 7 W’s in their last eight matches. The Razorbacks are coming in confident as they pulled off an upset against the Missouri Tigers, who’s currently ranked 24th in the AP Poll.
The Razorbacks are not to be discounted as they have also made it to the Top 25 AP Poll rankings. They proved that they have what it takes to play against the top dogs of the league.
The College Basketball odds for Alabama vs. Arkansas should show how much respect the Razorbacks have gained due to their recent performance. As the Razorbacks inch their way to the biggest event in NCAAB, we are all excited to see how far the team can go.
