Why Florida Will Win
Can the Gators get the offense cranked up?
It’s been relatively simple for this team. Get to 72 points and win – it’s 10-0 when they score that many or more, and 0-5 when they don’t.
Arkansas has allowed 72 or more 12 times in the last 16 games.
The Hogs get into shootouts, Florida is the best team in the SEC from three, and this should be played into the mid-70s into the 80s as both teams go up and down the court in a hurry. However …
Why Arkansas Will Win
Florida doesn’t shoot a lot from the outside. It makes them when it shoots them, but it just doesn’t shoot them.
The biggest problem for the Gators will be on the boards – they don’t grab rebounds, and Arkansas is the best in the SEC at hitting the glass.
Florida might score a whole lot of points, but they don’t move the ball around well enough to get the big basket in the key spots, they’re not all that great at coming up with offensive rebounds, and Arkansas is just better at scoring. If this gets frenetic at all, the Hogs are better at playing that type of game, but …
What’s Going To Happen
Again, for whatever reason, 72 is a magical number for Florida.
Arkansas is fantastic at home, Florida has been a bit inconsistent, and … it’s going to be a high-scoring shootout.
Every streak has to come to an end at some point, but if you like not breaking something that works, then like the Gators to pull this off. Either way, it’s going to be one of the most fun games of the night.
