The SEC Tournament is in its quarterfinal stage and LSU will be trying to knock down Arkansas' doors for the third time this season. The Tigers have won three of their last four, with their only loss coming to the Razorbacks.

Arkansas, who's covered in 10 of its last 12 games, will hope they still have the formula to beat this hungry Tigers squad. LSU (3-2 ATS in last five games) has inched closer to Arkansas over the last week. Can the Tigers surpass them today?

Here are the odds for the matchup via WynnBET.

  • Arkansas: -2.5 (-110)

LSU vs. Arkansas Prediction and Pick

I like Arkansas a lot in this game. The Razorbacks have already beaten the Tigers twice this season. Although LSU was able to make this a one-point game in the last meeting, I don't trust them to do it again.

The Tigers are good on the defensive side of the ball, but don't have the offense to stay with Arkansas. LSU is 12th in the conference in offensive efficiency and dead-last in turnover percentage. If it can't hold onto the ball today, Arkansas' No. 1 defense will have a field day in transition.

Arkansas has won five of its last six games, beating Kentucky, Tennessee and LSU in that span. While the Razorbacks did give up a game in the rematch to the Volunteers, they still have a convincing win on their side to bolster their resume.

The Razorbacks play fast, are good at the free throw line and have the stingiest defense in the SEC. LSU hasn't cracked the code yet and today won't be the day.

Lean: Arkansas -2.5 (-110)
