BETTING LINE Arkansas is a 1-point favorite; O/U 138

NOTABLE Arkansas beat Missouri 72-60 in Bud Walton Arena on Jan. 23 in the teams’ first meeting this season … Razorbacks guard Isaiah Joe’s 82 three-pointers are two shy of setting Arkansas’ freshman record. Rotnei Clarke set the record with 83 three-pointers during the 2008-09 season … Missouri sophomore guard Mark Smith (ankle) and sophomore center Jeremiah Tilmon (jaw) are questionable for tonight’s game. Smith has missed the last five games and Tilmon didn’t play in the Tigers’ 68-59 loss against Texas A&M last Saturday after having emergency dental surgery … Arkansas sophomore guard Jalen Harris scored a career-high 17 points at South Carolina, but was 5 of 16 from the field … Arkansas is 7-2 in its last nine games against Missouri … The Tigers are 7-5 at home this season, including 1-4 in SEC games. Their lone SEC home victory came against Vanderbilt, which is 0-10 in conference play … Mike Anderson is 8-5 against Missouri, where he was the coach for five seasons before taking the Arkansas job for the 2011-12 season.
