The Alabama Crimson Tide will head to Fayetteville and face the Arkansas Razorbacks from the Bud Walton Arena on ESPN2. Arkansas leads the all-time series 35-30, after winning nine of the last seven games.

Alabama jumped to 13-2 after beating Kentucky at home. Bama outscored UK in both halves, and handed the Wildcats a 26-point defeat. Alabama scores 82.9 points per game, while allowing 69.7 ppg, and shooting 44.4%  from the floor.

Alabama is off to a 3-0 start in SEC play, and they are as real as they seem. The Tide have already built the most impressive resume in the nation, but this may indeed be their stiffest test yet in Fayetteville. Brandon Miller is starting for Bama in his first season. The 6’9 forward went for a career-high 36 points against Gonzaga, then posted back-to-back double-doubles. Miller leads the Tide in scoring (19.1) and rebounding (8.5), while his front court mate and fellow freshman Noah Clowney is matching the team-lead with 8.5 rpg, while scoring 9.6 ppg. Ohio transfer Mark Sears paced the team with 20 points in the win over the Bulldogs, and he’s up to 14.7 ppg.

Arkansas fell to 12-3 following a road loss to Auburn. The Razorbacks found themselves uncharacteristically down big at the break, and the Tigers would protect the lead then walk away with a 12-point victory. Arkansas scores 76.2 points per game, while allowing 62.9 ppg, and shooting 47.5%from the field.

Arkansas has dropped two of their first three SEC games, but there’s no reason to panic. Now, there should be a sense of urgency hosting a top-five ranked team, but still no worries for one of the most sound teams in the country. Ricky Council IV has settled in nicely after coming over from Wichita State, and after scoring a game-high 25 points in the win over Mizzou, he leads the Hogs with 18.1 ppg. Freshman guard Anthony Black had back-to-back 26-point outings in wins over Creighton and Louisville, and he’s averaging 12.5 ppg. Veteran guard Davonte Davis (7.9 ppg, 3.6 rpg) remains in the fold, and he went for a season-high 16 points against LSU.

Alabama is 11-4-1 against the spread this season, with a 8-7 over/under record. Arkansas is 4-9-1 ATS this year, with a 4-11 o/u record.

This will be one of the most anticipated college basketball games of the season. Alabama looks like a serious national championship contender, but they’ll have a fierce test of facing the Hogs at Bud Walton here. This is a tough place to play in, but Alabama has proven to be trustworthy in big games this season. It should be a contested affair, but I like the Crimson Tide adding another win to their impressive body of work. Take Alabama’s spread for this SEC battle.
