Like this, but with footballs.
So, we just got our first win of the season less than 24 hours ago. Felt good, didn’t it? Yeah, it was against a team that forgets to run the right way sometimes, but the offense showed real poise and ability in the second half, and that certainly bodes well for the future.
Speaking of the future, it’s already time to start placing bets on UK against Western. Remember, the spread for Kent State was a touchdown, and that was overcome pretty handily. So what’s the expectation against WKU?
Well, according to VegasInsider.com, not a lot:
Yesterday saw the Cats win and the ‘Toppers lose, but it’s hard to overlook the quality of opponents. Western went up against a dominating Alabama team that essentially used the game as a glorified practice to give their passing game some time to work against an unfamiliar defense, allowing the running backs to take a little bit of a break. Kentucky, meanwhile, took advantage of one of the few soft spots on the schedule.
But still, even after accounting for the teams they just played, does 4 1/2 points seem low to you? Before yesterday, I would have said it seemed about right. Now it seems a little less probable. It’s still smart to be wary of an offense that put up 14 points against the Tide, considering that’s the same number that Denard Robinson and the 8th ranked Wolverines put up in week one. But what do you think? Discuss it Goldilocks-style: Too high, too low, or just right?
