The Kentucky Wildcats are 29-0 this season and they are playing their final true road game of the season. Kentucky is averaging 75 points per game and they are shooting 47.1 percent while defensively they are allowing 53.2 points and their opponents are shooting 34.4 percent. Aaron Harrison leads the Wildcats averaging 11.1 points per game. Devin Booker is averaging 11.1 points, Karl-Anthony Towns is averaging 9.3 points and 6.5 rebounds, and Willie Cauley-Stein is averaging 9.1 points and 6.4 rebounds. Kentucky has won their nine road games and are just two games away from a perfect regular season.
Georgia is 7-2 against the spread following a win, 35-16-1 against the spread against the SEC, and 12-3-2 against the spread against a team with a winning record. Kentucky is 4-0-1 against the spread in their last five games, 1-3-1 against the spread in their last five road games, and 1-4 against the spread against a team with a winning percentage better than .600. The home team has covered the point spread in four of the last five meetings of these two.
This line looks suspiciously low as the Bulldogs continue to surprise teams and on Senior Night I look for them to play the Cats tough and at least get the cover.
