Arkansas is 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 Saturday games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 neutral site games. The over is 7-0 in Arkansas’ last 7 games.
New Mexico State is coming off of a nice upset win over Connecticut, while Arkansas was able to avoid an upset of their own against Vermont. New Mexico State plays very good defense and should be able to score against a poor Arkansas defense. Both teams rebound the ball about the same, while the Aggies have a better shooting percentage. I like the over in this game as the over as been a trend for both of these teams in recent games.
