AUBURN TIGERS VS. ARKANSAS RAZORBACKS PREDICTIONS

The Tigers head into Fayetteville with a 19-game win streak in tow, and they look to protect their No. 1 ranking and unbeaten record in the SEC. The Tigers had a near-miss last time out at Georgia on Saturday, scratching out a 74-72 win in Athens as 16-point favorites. Auburn shot just 40% (27-of-68) from behind the field, while going 23% (6-of-26) from behind the 3-point line. Auburn coughed it up 14 times to just 10 times for Georgia, but they made up for that carelessness with the ball by outrebounding the Bulldogs by a 39-to-29 margin.

Arkansas heads into this one with eight straight games dating back to a Jan. 8 loss at Texas A&M. Not only have the Hogs been winning, but they have covered seven of those outings, including each of the past four. If you're looking at recent common opponents, Arkansas just spanked Georgia on Feb. 2 by a 99-73 score in Athens. Last time out, Arkansas topped Mississippi State 63-55, and the Razorbacks hit just 38% (23-of-61) from the field, while managing just 21% (4-of-19) from behind the 3-point line. The difference was that Arkansas turned it over just five times, while outrebounding Mississippi State 36-33.

AUBURN TIGERS VS. ARKANSAS RAZORBACKS BETTING CONCLUSION

The Auburn Tigers were very fortunate to get it done on the road against a bad Georgia team, winning by two points. The top-ranked team in The Associated Press' Top 25 poll nearly suffered a monumental loss. It got the win, but the Tigers won't be as fortunate against the red-hot Razorbacks.

Auburn might be missing a bench piece, too, as Zep Jasper is dealing with an undisclosed injury and is a question mark for Tuesday's contest. Whether he plays or not won't change much, but a lack of depth is not what the Tigers need against a team playing very well. Auburn needs all hands on deck for its toughest road test since the Alabama game on Jan. 11. Bruce Pearl's team will see its luck run out, and Arkansas plays its way up the rankings heading into the new week. Arkansas is 7-1 ATS in the past eight games overall, and on an eight-game win streak. They'll extend both of those streaks on Tuesday.
