Two extremely volatile SEC teams meet up for their final regular season contest of 2024. This is the Hogs and Tide's first meeting this season, which is a shame because these two offenses are extremely fun. Both teams rank inside the top 30 in pace, which means we'll get a ton of offensive chances in this one.

I mentioned above how similarly volatile these two teams are, yet they're at opposite ends of the SEC standings. Alabama has capitalized on its chances far better than Arkansas has.


Arkansas Razorbacks

The Razorbacks are at the bottom of the SEC picture. Nevertheless, Arkansas can truly run with anyone in the conference and still has its eyes on taking care of business in SEC tournament.

The trio of Tramon Mark, Khalif Battle and Trevon Brazile possesses NBA-level talent. When those three get going, they're some of the best in the conference. They combine to average just under 40 points per game, and they led Arkansas to defeat Texas A&M twice this season.

Arkansas' volatility is awesome in an underdog setting, as it's such a boom-or-bust team. With these odds being so long, it's surely worth considering backing the Razorbacks.

Arkansas has the horses to go shot-for-shot with Alabama and can surely keep up with Bama's pace.


Alabama Crimson Tide

Just a few days ago, the Crimson Tide were at the top of the SEC food chain and had hopes of a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament.

Two straight losses knocked them out of the SEC regular season title picture and a chance at that top seed.

The Crimson Tide have one of the highest ceilings in the nation, with a fast-paced style of play and deadly 3-point shooting. This is their downfall, as well. Any team that shoots 30 or more 3s per game is due to have some off nights.

Those nights produce a remarkably low floor, as it could lose to any team in the conference.

This time around, the Tide should get what they want against a poor Arkansas defense.

Betting Pick & Prediction

These two teams play a very similar style of basketball. This game will be fast, chaotic and high-scoring.

Anytime you get two extremely volatile teams, the range of outcomes is wide.

Truthfully, Arkansas winning outright would be no more or less surprising than the Tide winning and covering by double digits.

We're in the middle of a poor stretch for this electric Alabama offense, so we'll continue to fade it. Arkansas has the pace and the offensive output to match what Alabama does.

If Alabama is giving away possessions or not shooting it well, don't be shocked to see the Hogs keep it close.

Pick: Arkansas +16.5
