BETTING LINE Missouri is a 1 1/2-point favorite, according to FanDuel.
NOTABLE Arkansas has won five in a row over Missouri. Ricky Council led the Razorbacks with 25 points and freshman guard Joseph Pinion added a season-high 13 points off the bench … The Razorbacks are 14-8 against the Tigers in SEC games … Senior guard Noah Carter is averaging 12.7 points off the bench for Missouri … Anthony Black leads Arkansas with 61 assists … The Tigers are averaging 11.6 steals to lead the nation … Arkansas is 0-3 on the road, but has won on its last two trips to Missouri – 85-81 in overtime in 2021 and 76-57 last season … Eric Musselman is 6-2 against Missouri … Arkansas freshman guard Nick Smith will miss his seventh consecutive game — and 13th of the season — because of a right knee injury. Musselman has said he expects Smith to continue to be out at least the rest of January. There is no timetable for his return … Missouri is 10-1 at home with the lone loss coming to rival Kansas.
