Vanderbilt is 5-13 ATS in their last 18 games overall and 2-9 ATS in their last 11 games against a team with a losing record while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 road games. Kentucky is 10-2 ATS in their last 12 home games and 15-6 ATS in their last 21 games overall while the under is 18-4 in their last 22 conference games. The under is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings between these two teams and 4-0 in the last 4 meetings between these two teams at Kentucky.
You have a Vanderbilt team that has issues scoring the football against a Kentucky team that’s done nothing but play in low-scoring games for most of the season. Outside of the game against Ole Miss in game two, Kentucky’s other five games have all seen 42 points or less, three of those games finishing at 30 or under. I think this is another low scoring kind of game where the first to 20 wins, so I’ll take the under in this one.
