They trailed Florida by six points with 4:44 remaining, then outscored the Gators 13-6, for an 81-78 win. Oral Roberts played at Arkansas on Dec. 20th as a 19-point underdog, and they had a 10-point lead at halftime. Arkansas stormed back in the 2nd-half and won the game by 11.

They find themselves as double-digit favorites over the surprising Oral Roberts team. Since Nov. 2019, Arkansas is just 2-7-0 against the spread as double-digit favorites. The Wiz feels this line is a bit inflated and expects the Hogs to advance but Oral Roberts to Win the bet.
