Kentucky opens as a 17-point favorite tomorrow

After seeing Kentucky cover the 17.5-point spread against South Carolina Tuesday night, the college basketball oddsmakers out in Las Vegas are ready to see if they can do it again.  Kentucky opened up in the books as a 17-point favorite against Auburn this afternoon.

Will the Cats cover?

    if we do win tomorrow i hope we’re still not ranked next week. i think it might be a distraction going into the gaytors game if our players think ‘wow, we’re a top 25 team now. we’re good’

    77-67 Cats. It scares me to think some of our guys might see these odds and get over confident.

    Ryan harrow says,”I just bench pressed 90lbs. & I get to play whether I suck a$$ or not.”” I also get to average as many TO’s as assists & take more shots than anyone.” ” I can also ask to come out when I don’t feel well.” ” I can also say I’m 6’2″ when I’m actually 5’10”. ” please love me or I might cry.”

    Lets kick some Tiger ass. Spread will be tough though, will Ba e to save e edgy for studs day “away” game at Fla. lets all sing. Noel,Noel, Noel.. Noel, whatever you get it. Truth is, this team is a Shabazz Muhammad away from the title. Truth told, if Noel was at UCLA, they’d probably be a final four guarantee, and with UCLA’s past, they get in final four and watch out. Noel and Muhammad, you all could have won a title at either of these schools. But look at the stands. Rupp Are a absolutely dominates Pauly Pavillion. And our fans know basketball and care about basketball way more. If shabazz had come wed be #4 or #5a out right now. This is why we need Wiggins. We. Need the best ball handling player in the country ala shabazz. If the best player comes here and 5 more 4 or 5 stars, ala James Young, we’d kick some dreaming ass next year. Harrison twins. TOWNS. Oh yeah. Don’t pick UK to cover spread in this game.
