Offensive line guru Cole Cubelic, who will be on the call for tonight’s game in The Swamp for the SEC Network, has a daily radio show in Birmingham called 3 Man Front on Jox 94.5 It’s a program that airs daily from 10am until 2pm central time that covers college football on a local, regional, and national level.
Earlier this week, Cubelic brought out his computer system he calls “Rubix Cubelic”. Using stats such as penalties rush yards, rushing average, and turnover margin, a created algorithm will give you their predicted winner.
This week, Cubelic and his workmates sent three games into the computer. It’s a seven point system, according to Cubelic, and the score will tell you whether the game will be close or blowout city. For this week, the winners came out as Kentucky over Florida, Georgia over South Carolina, and Clemson over Texas A&M with each coming as a +2 margin. That means a close game in each outing.
Since the season is only one game old, data was used from last season to get these numbers. Since the beginning of last season, Kentucky has outrushed Florida, has a better yards per carry average, has a better turnover margin, fewer penalties, and better numbers on third down. Therefore, the computer is calling for a Wildcats win.
Last season this system went 32-7 for a .821 winning percentage. That’s a pretty good clip. Listen to the segment here.
Outside of Marcus Spears, I have not seen a national media member pick a UK win and most of the local media is expecting Florida to pick up another victory. All other analytic systems I’ve seen are also going with a Florida double-digit victory. But if you trust this one, with proven results, you can currently get Kentucky to win with +375 odds. Will it happen today?
