Kentucky Opens As Eight Point Favorite Over Louisville

Kentucky will look to make it five straight football wins over the Filthy Cards this season when Charlie Strong and his band of message board superstars come rolling into Commonwealth Stadium September 17.  If Vegas odds are any indication, the Cats should be in a good position to do so.  The Las Vegas Hilton released the first college football odds of the year and made Kentucky an eight-point favorite over Louisville.  Last season, the Cats opened as a three-point favorite before winning 23-16.

The Hilton also placed Kentucky with the potentially lucractive 100/1 odds of winning the SEC Championship, tying them with Ole Miss and putting them one spot ahead of Vanderbilt (300/1).  Rise!

This simulation laughs at your eight points, Vegas Hilton.  And then hopes you didn’t notice the cheating by using Donald Russell.

    Mine was 36-7 UK. 2 defensive touchdowns. Both Trevathon (1 fumble recovery to the house and one pick 6).

    I dont know how many losses Cal has in his career, but when he hits a landmark number we should celebrate it like crazy (this includes vacated losses). I wonder what the NCAA would say about that? Maybe they would make us have an official retraction and issue a statement, “John Calipari does not actually have 100 losses, the real number is only 94.”

    I thought Donald Russell transfered so why is he still rushing on the game?

    UK is more likely to win by 16 or more than just by eight. U of L is really going to suck and UK will be at least as good overall as last year, and only horribly ill timed turnovers stopped UK from winning eight or nine games last year.

    Awesome video.. I myself played U of L and I won 31-3 so hopefully itll turn out that way.. and #3: Id forsure buy this game because it has those extra features that go along way. I finished the season with UK’s record 8-4 btw…

    Go BIG BLUE!

    Love the outcome but:
    1. Where are the female fans? Yes, there are a lot of us out here!
    2. LaRod better be using some Rogaine!

    That simulation isn’t even close to accurate…The Louisville fans in the crowd aren’t sipping Crown Royal.

    Doesn’t look that much different than the 11′ version college football. My friends are wanting me to buy this so we can play an online dynasty. Is it worth it??

    Anyone notice the nice plant growing behind the lady hunter? Look standing behind her, over the lady hunter’s right shoulder?

    I don’t trust this EA Sports simulation because not one bubble screen was used.

    No line beards on the card fans and A Boyd caught a pass?
