Kansas Jayhawks vs. Kentucky Wildcats Predictions
The best game of the weekend will be played at the Rupp Arena when the Kansas Jayhawks enter to challenge the Kentucky Wildcats. Between both teams have a combined record of 31-6 this season. Both teams are on a good run I would say, but each has recorded unacceptable losses along the way. Both Kansas and Kentucky opened as favorites in the season to end up as College Basketball champs. Seeing them ranked eight and nine is a little disappointing, to be honest.
Kansas has been a very lousy bet this season. Only eight of their 19 games saw them cover the spread. When going on the road, they covered just once in four outings. The team is not as a good the projections thought they would. The Jayhawks are coming off a good win against Iowa State 80-76 in their last outing but failed to cover the spread for a third straight time. Against Kentucky, it will be only the second time this season they jump on the court as underdogs. It happened when they visited the Cyclones early in January and lost by 17 points.
Kentucky has a similar scenario, posting a 9-9 against the spread record this season despite winning eight of their last nine games outright. However, in recent outings, the Wildcats have found scenarios to earn us money. They covered as 7.5-point favorites Georgia and Mississippi State and beat Auburn outright as a 4.5-point dog. Going into Rupp Arena, I expect a high scoring game, especially knowing both teams will be in attack mode trying to trade baskets. I feel more comfortable knowing that Kentucky at least makes an effort to play defense and that should be the difference. What’s the play? Kentucky.
