Northwestern the early favorite against Kentucky


Vegas has spoken, and the Northwestern Wildcats are the early favorite over the Kentucky Wildcats in the Music City Bowl. The line was just released and Northwestern is a 6.5-point favorite. Considering they’re ranked 21st and have a 9-3 record, that sounds about right.

Other early lines for bowl season:

  • Missouri (-2) vs. Texas
  • Texas A&M vs. Wake Forest (-3)
  • Louisville (-5) vs. Mississippi State
  • South Carolina vs. Michigan (-8.5)
  • Auburn (-10) vs. Central Florida
  • LSU (-2.5) vs. Notre Dame
  • Georgia vs. Oklahoma (-1)
  • Alabama (-1.5) vs. Clemson

As always, gamble responsibly.

    I’d take NW all day long with that spread.

    I hate that Fitzgerald is missing the UofL match-up…I bet that game would be very entertaining.

    1. Eazy

      Yes, would’ve been a good one. MSU at full strength would beat UL. Plus theyd have the Grantham factor.

  3. BigBogee

    As they should be.

    Won’t be going, me and mine will attend the Basketball game. At least we have a chance of winning that one.

      We get it. That’s the second time you’ve posted the same exact thing. Doody indeed.

      We will smoke Louisville. Also, it’s funny that we get matched up with a 7-2 Big 10 team when we went 4-4 in the SEC. Clearly shows the superiority of the SEC.

      You say that like NW is happy to play a scrub after their above average season.

  5. shepdog3720

    Based on watching The Cats 2 weekends ago, the spread should be about +30

    We are getting that W. Y’all go cheer for someone else.

      I hope you’re right, but I doubt it. Not a good matchup for us.

    What a break the Cards caught. Playing a team without their coach and best player.

  8. Leroy Byrd - 00

    Put me on record here with the prediction of 31-21 CAYTS.

    These seniors will go out on a winning note and Benny will show out.

    GBB for life – F a bunch of Northwestern.

    Alabama is favored over the number 1 team. You know Clemson wished they were playing the Buckeyes again!

  10. cats646

    Yea Louisville lucked out. But they will still probably lose. Ha. I doubt they can handle them even without Fitzgerald and Mullen.

    1. 502CodeRed

      Grantham wont be coaching either. Dont worry, UofL will get revenge for our little football brothers who were blown out by MSU earlier this year.
