2017 March Madness Bookie Guide: Kentucky Wildcats

Written by:
Published on:

Ranked number 9 in the nation, the Kentucky Wildcats have gone 26-5 on the season Straight Up and 16-51 Against The Spread.  This team has hardly been intimidating to the books.

ESPN.com offered this projection for the Kentucky Wildcats:

Malik Monk (9-of-18) collected 33 points in Kentucky's 76-66 win over Florida on Saturday. He could lead Kentucky to a national title. But if the player who finished 4-for-14 in a 22-point loss in the first matchup against Florida shows up, how will Kentucky recover? Last season's Wildcats thought Jamal Murray could bail them out. And when he went 1-for-9 from the 3-point line in the second round against Indiana last season, Kentucky went home. Could happen again with Monk.

The Wildcats may be riding a 7-game win streak to kick off the month of March, but they have just covered in four of their last ten.   

Kentucky is the most successful NCAA Division I basketball program in history in terms of both all-time wins (2231) and all-time winning percentage (.765).
