Matchup History

Kentucky’s riding a double-digit head-to-head win streak after a 69-53 win over the Commodores back on January 24th, 2023.


Vanderbilt is 37-18-1 ATS in their last 56 road games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall while the over is 15-4 in their last 19 road games. Kentucky is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS win while the over is 9-2 in their last 11 home games.


I’m backing Kentucky here. Vanderbilt’s on a nice run, but this is senior night at Rupp Arena we’re talking about here. There’s lots of seniors for Coach Cal’s group, including Tshiebwe and Antonio Reeves and I just don’t think that Vanderbilt’s in a good spot to be able to get past it here. Give me the Wildcats laying the points in this one.
