Ole Miss vs. Kentucky Prediction

I’m on Kentucky here. 3-game losing streaks are so rare at Rupp Arena and I have to think that Kentucky is going to throw everything at the wall here to ensure that a 4th doesn’t happen. Ole Miss has been a nice story this season, but I think they’re overmatched going on the road in this one and in the end, I just think that Kentucky ends up being too much for Ole Miss to contend with here. Give me Kentucky in this one.
