Arkansas-Auburn Prediction

Here is a battle between two top 10 SEC teams. We would call this one a tossup but it’s very hard to win at Auburn with their great hecklers in the crowd. Auburn should win this series but don’t be surprised if Arkansas scratches out a series victory. Auburn 2 wins, Arkansas 1 win.
