A- A A+

The total for this game is posted at 136.5.

Florida is undefeated in SEC play and they are red-hot winners of 10 straight games. Not only that, but they are schooling conference foes winning their 7 SEC games by an average of 25 points per game.

Arkansas is coming off a win, but they have lost their last 5 games facing Florida including getting crushed by 30 points at home last season. The Razorbacks are at 13-8 and they may be on the bubble unless they end the season well and a win over the 2nd ranked Gators would be a great start.

In their last games Florida had no problem beating a ranked Mississippi team 78-64 and Arkansas snapped their 2-game losing streak with a 73-60 win over Tennessee.

The Razorbacks have lost both of their games facing teams in the top 25 this season.

This season Florida has been a much better betting team at 12-5 ATS with an Over/Under record of 7-7 and Arkansas is only 6-7 ATS with an Over/Under record of 5-6.

G BJ Young (16.7 ppg) lit up Tennessee for 25 points in his last game and he and Marshawn Powell (15.3 ppg) are the main guys the Gators' defense has to key on. Young and Powell are the only 2 players averaging in double figures and with Florida keying on them they will need some other players to step up in the scoring department.

Kenny Boynton (13.6 ppg) leads the Gators in scoring and he only had 9 points in the win over Mississippi, but Florida still won by 14 points. Erik Murphy stepped up in the game going for 19 points and the Razorbacks have to play good all-around D, as Florida has 5 players that are averaging at least 9 ppg.

The Razorbacks may have a little payback on their minds, as last season's blowout loss to Florida was their worst home loss since their stadium opened in 1993.

On the season Arkansas is a solid 12-1 at home and Florida is 6-1 on the road.

Arkansas is 5-14 ATS in their last 19 games facing a team that has a winning record and in their last 11 home games the posted total has gone Over 9 times.

Florida has covered the spread in their last 5 games against Arkansas.

Bus Man's Pick: Arkansas is a good home team, but tonight I think the Gators will have their way with them again and Florida will win this conference match up and cover the spread.
