The Abilene Christian vs. Kentucky game had a line of Wildcats -22.5.


Due to the steep price, it might be wiser to look at the Wildcats chances of winning the NCAA Men's College Basketball Championship.  Kentucky pays $1400 for every $100 bet.

Kentucky lost forward Reid Travis during the final five games of the regular season but he returned to carry the team in the final game before the big dance.

The Wildcats sit right around the .500 mark Against The Spread.

Their weakness is shooting three-pointers. 

Otherwise this is a team that can go all the way.

ESPN has this to say about Kentucky: “The Wildcats are athletic, versatile and rarely overmatched in talent. They're elite on both ends of the court and dominant around the basket, collecting 36.6 percent of their missed shots (10th in nation) and limiting opponents to 44 percent on 2-point field goal attempts. They also swat 14 percent of the shots taken against them, ranking top 20 in that area as well.”

Some more positives to look at: "Calipari has won 78 percent of his games as a Division I coach and 75 percent in the NCAA tournament. His teams generally improve over the course of the season, and it's easy to understand why he feels like this squad's best basketball is still to come. These Wildcats consistently win the scoring battle at the free throw line and in the paint, two dependable areas in a team's quest to advance through the bracket."

UK was 19-1 in the regular season when it held opponents to less than one point per possession and 7-4 when it allowed more than one PPP.

Catch them on an off defensive night.  This is the only way they are going to get beaten.
