Arkansas and Seton Hall Well-Matched in Round of 64

The winner of this game between the Razorbacks and Pirates gets a ticket to play UNC in the second round so this is likely the last game either of these teams will win this season. With that said, there’s still money to be made in the opening round and with Arkansas opening as a slight 1-point favorite as the No. 8 seed, this should be one of the closer matchups in the Round of 64.

  • Arkansas is 6-1 SU and ATS in its last 7 games after an ATS loss.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Seton Hall's last 8 games as an underdog.
  • Arkansas is 10-2 in the Round of 64 as a higher seed but just 1-2 in the last 3 in that scenario.

For those interested in trivia, Arkansas actually won the tournament in 1994 but hasn’t made it to the Elite Eight since 1995. The last time the Razorbacks finished their regular season with 25 wins, they made it to the third round of the tournament. Although that’s probably not happening this year, they should get through to the second round again with an offense that’s 38th in the nation in scoring and a defense that holds its own, limiting opponents to a 41.98 shooting percentage.

Seton Hall will be making just its second March Madness appearance since the Louis Orr era and is looking for its first NCAA tournament win in Kevin Willard’s seven-year tenure. The Pirates were just barely taken out by the defending national champs and eventual Big East tournament winners in the second round of their conference tournament but before that they had won five straight games, so don’t sleep on Seton Hall, a team that went to the national final all the way back in 1989.
