Alabama-Arkansas Series Prediction

Arkansas has won four straight series and eight of the last nine over Alabama. Due to that run, the Crimson Tide’s series advantage has shrunk to 15-14 and regular-season game total of 44-42 since Arkansas joined the SEC in 1992. Twelve of the 29 series have resulted in sweeps, six by each school. Arkansas’ last sweep came in Fayetteville in 2018 and in Tuscaloosa in 2015. Alabama’s last sweep occurred in 2016 in Fayetteville and last in Tuscaloosa in 2009. Alabama won 10 of 12 series between 1992-2003. Since then, Arkansas has won 12 of 17 series.

Arkansas is 6-6 after starting SEC play 11-4. The Razorbacks have two conference road series wins this season (Missouri and Auburn). Arkansas needs one more win to reach 18+ conference wins for the fifth consecutive season. The last team to do it was Florida from 2014-18. The Razorbacks have an opportunity to become the first team to win 20+ SEC games in three straight seasons since LSU from 1996-98.

After starting 8-5, Alabama has slumped to a 2-11 record over its last 13 SEC games, including three consecutive losses. The Crimson Tide, who have dropped their last five series, need to win two this weekend to match last year’s conference win total. (Source: SEC)
