NCAA Basketball: Arkansas at Tennessee Randy Sartin-USA TODAY Sports

The Arkansas Razorbacks will look to continue their hot streak against the Texas A&M Aggies, who missed a full month of the season, on Saturday, March 6th at 5 p.m. ET.

Arkansas (20-5, 12-4 SEC) is among the hottest teams in college basketball right now with a seven-game winning streak heading into Saturday’s game. The Razorbacks rank No. 13 in the latest KenPom ratings, and have the same ranking in adjusted defensive efficiency. Arkansas scored 101 points in a blowout road win over the South Carolina Gamecocks on Tuesday night as Moses Moody increased his points per game average to 17 with a 28-point performance. Freshman forward Jaylin Williams missed the last game, and there has been no update on his status for Saturday.

Texas A&M (8-8, 2-7 SEC) returned to the court on Wednesday in a 63-57 home loss to the Mississippi State Bulldogs. The Aggies did not play a game the entire month of February due to multiple COVID-19 shutdowns and a winter storm. In their first game back, sophomore forward Emanuel Miller went for 24 points on 9 of 17 shooting with 13 rebounds. He leads the team with 15.4 points and 8.1 rebounds per game.

The Best Bet

The Aggies have been woefully ineffective in SEC play and they will be closing the regular season on the road against a program that is primed for a top-four seed in the NCAA Tournament.

However, 136.5 is a bit low for this matchup as both squads can topple that no problem.
