Georgia +9 at Arkansas (139)

Arkansas and Georgia actually met for the SEC tournament title last year. Boy, have fortunes turned. Georgia is 1-10 on the road with five of their last six defeats by double digits. Arkansas has lost eight in a row and 12 of 13. The Hogs are 11-5 at home, but have dropped three straight.

If the Bulldogs are not what the doctor ordered for this sick Hog, then maybe inviting the 1994 NCAA championship team back to Fayetteville is. If the Razorbacks have any pride and can recapture for one game that "40 Minutes Of Hell" from that ’94 Nolan Richardson crew, we’re willing to give the 9.

If you don’t believe us, listen to Arkansas coach John Pelphrey. "Our last game (against Georgia) was in the SEC finals. That was a tough loss for us. That day was (NCAA) Selection Sunday and it robbed us of some of that joy. We understand how important this week is in terms of celebrating our history. The national championship team and Coach Richardson are here. It will be monumental, and we’ll give respect where it is certainly due." Soooee, Pig. ARKANSAS.
