BETTING LINE Arkansas is a 15.5-point favorite; O/U 146

NOTABLE Arkansas has a 15-3 home record against the Commodores, whom the Razorbacks have beaten in 8 of their last 9 meetings. … The teams have two common opponents: Texas A&M and Tulsa. The Razorbacks are 2-0 against those teams, downing Tulsa 98-79 and Texas A&M 69-59. The Commodores are 0-2, falling 67-58 to the Golden Hurricane and 69-50 to the Aggies, both at Memorial Gym. … Vanderbilt has lost guard Aaron Nesmith, the SEC’s leading scorer (23.0), who ranks sixth nationally, likely for the season with a stress fracture in his foot.
