The Arkansas Razorbacks and Vermont Catamounts face off on Thursday in a Round of 64 NCAA Tournament game at the KeyBank Center in Buffalo, New York.

The Arkansas Razorbacks come into this game with a 25-8 record overall but they have won two of the last three games. In the last game against Texas A&M the defense was awful giving up 82 points and that led to the 18 point defeat. The other loss in their last last three games was against Tennessee, and the defense gave up 78 points in that game. Arkansas is averaging 76.9 points while their defense is giving up 68.5 points per game. JD Notae has been the top player for Arkansas this season averaging 18.4 points while shooting 40.8 percent from the field. There are four different players that are averaging at least 18.4 points per game. This isn’t a game that Arkansas can overlook and the defense is going to need to be good. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Vermont Catamounts who sit with a 28-5 record overall and they have won eight games in a row. In the championship game of the America East. The defense was elite, giving up only 43 points to UMBC, and the offense scored 82 points.  Vermont is averaging 74.9 points while their defense is giving up 60.3 points per game. Forward Ryan Davis has been the top player for Vermont averaging 17.2 points while shooting 59 percent from the field and 42.3 percent from behind the three point line.

This is a very bad matchup for Arkansas, and I expect Vermont is going to give them everything they can handle. Look for Vermont’s defense to slow down Arkansas, and that will be enough to keep it close. I am not sure it’s going to be enough to win the game, but Vermont is going to give them a real scare. Back Vermont against the spread.
