Everyone is talking about a potential second-round date with Arizona in Boise, but there’s still a game to play in the opening round against Atlantic 10 Tournament champion Davidson.
And according to early predictions, it’s going to be a whole lot closer than the Big Blue Nation would like.
Vegas has spoken, and the Kentucky Wildcats are favored by just six in their matchup against Davidson.
Oscar Combs released a screenshot of the line:
If you ask Fox Sports’ Jason McIntyre, it’s a “coaching mismatch” with Davidson head coach Bob McKillop outperforming Coach Cal.
Kentucky only favored by 6 vs Davidson should speak volumes.
Coaching mismatch (McKillop > Calipari). Kentucky hot now, but shooting is a major problem.

In fact, Ken Pom’s advanced analytics/predictions say Kentucky will narrowly edge Davidson by a final score of 73-70.
We’ll have an in-depth breakdown tomorrow of Kentucky’s matchup with Davidson, where you’ll learn about the Wildcats’ hot shooting on the big stage.
Until then, however, I’d take a much closer look at Wildcats of Davidson before watching all of your DeAndre Ayton highlights tonight…
