Kentucky Wildcats vs Arkansas Razorbacks 2/26/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The #6 Kentucky Wildcats will meet with the #18 Arkansas Razorbacks in a Southeastern Conference clash in Bud Walton Arena, Fayetteville, AR, on Saturday, February 26, 2022, at 2:00 PM ET.

 

This season, No. 6 Kentucky is one of the finest teams in college basketball. It won eight of its previous nine matches, with the lone setback coming against then-No. Tennessee is number 16 on the list. The Wildcats resurrected their season with victories against then-No.

 

Alabama and LSU are ranked 25th and 25th, respectively. In the SEC standings, they are one match behind Auburn, but the Tigers have the tiebreaker thanks to an 80-71 win in the head-to-head encounter on Jan. 22.

 

Kentucky is presently a No. 2-seed in ESPN’s Joe Lunardi’s latest NCAA Tournament predictions, but it is still in contention for one of the top places.

 

The offense of the Wildcats is ranked third in KenPom’s adjusted efficiency ratings. They are strong in almost every area, but their strength is a second-place offensive rebounding % in the country.

 

On Saturday afternoon, Kentucky will have a little height edge. It’ll be up against an Arkansas defense ranked 14th in adjusted efficiency. Oscar Tshiebwe tops Kentucky in scoring and rebounding with 16.4 points and 15.3 rebounds per game, and he is the current favorite to capture the Wooden Award.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Kentucky’s last 6 matches.
  • The University of Kentucky Wildcats is 8-1 SU in their last 9 matches against Arkansas.
  • Kentucky is 7-1 SU in their last 8 matches in the Southeastern Conference.

Kentucky Wildcats vs Arkansas Razorbacks Predictions 2/26/2022

 

In late December and early January, Arkansas not only underperformed but also seemed to be a club that would not make the NCAA Tournament. After that, the Razorbacks won 12 of their past 13 games, fully reversing the trend.

 

Their lone defeat came in a 68-67 thriller against Alabama on the road. They rebounded with successive victories against Missouri, the then-No. Tennessee and Florida are a total of 16 states.

 

Arkansas beat Auburn earlier this month and is still in contention for the SEC crown. Both the Razorbacks and the Wildcats are counting on Tennessee to defeat Auburn on Saturday afternoon.

 

Between games against Kentucky, LSU, and Tennessee to end the regular season and the SEC Tournament in March, the Razorbacks will have plenty of opportunities to improve their placement.

 

Arkansas is ranked No. 60 in KenPom’s modified offensive efficiency ratings. The Razorbacks have a low turnover rate and a great offensive rebounding percentage while shooting 31.3 percent from outside the arc.

 

  • The University of Arkansas Razorbacks is 9-0 ATS in their last 9 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 7 of Arkansas’ last 9 matches at home against Kentucky.
  • Arkansas is 8-0 ATS in their last 8 matches in the Southeastern Conference.

#6 Kentucky Wildcats vs #18 Arkansas Razorbacks. The NCAAB pick for this game is the #18 Arkansas Razorbacks. Arkansas may not be at the top of the SEC rankings, but I’d argue that the Razorbacks are the conference’s hottest squad. Not only did they dominate games, but they also covered the spread in nine of their last ten.

 

Oh, and they don’t lose at home, either. During a 15-1 season at Bud Walton Arena, Arkansas defeated No. 16 Tennessee and No. 1 Auburn. A weakened Kentucky squad will find it tough to deal with their well-balanced group.

 

The Wildcats may be missing their best two distributors, which does not augur well against an Arkansas team that is strong on guards. The #18 Arkansas Razorbacks will win to a predicted score of 76-72.
