Kentucky a five-point underdog vs. Arkansas

As expected, Kentucky will be the underdog in Fayetteville. Vegas has spoken and Arkansas opened as a five-point favorite in tomorrow night’s 9 p.m. date with the Cats. The Razorbacks are on a four-game winning streak, their most recent win coming over No. 21 Texas A&M on Saturday.

Also as expected, Bud Walton Arena is sold out for the game. Arkansas is 14-1 at home this season and 4-1 in their last five games vs. the Cats in Bud Walton Arena. I can’t find any evidence of a t-shirt night, cup night, red out or white out as Calipari predicted this morning, but I’m sure it will happen.

Odds Rod Winkler will be there?

    Just out of curiosity, how can they be 4-1 in their last 5 against us at Bud Walton, yet no one on their roster have a win against us? All of their seniors transfers or something?

      In 2015 we played them in Rupp, and won. We also played in the SEC Tourney final, and won.

      In 2016 we played them at Bud Walton and won.

      In 2017 we played them at home and won, and also beat them in the SEC Final.

      Last time they beat us was in 2014, before this year’s group of seniors arrived. They swept us at home and in Walton. They also beat us in Walton in 2013, and 2011 under Cal.

    5 is being nice, we are going to get run outta bud Walton. It’s funny that just because we beat Bama at home that some of y’all think we’re getting ready to go on a final four run. Come on man. Arkansas is a GOOD team and they don’t lose much in that arena !

      He’ll make an appearance after a UK win to downplay that same “GOOD” Arkansas team…

      I’m hip to your game. You put yourself in a “win, win” situation. You predict a loss, then if UK loses you come and act like Nostradamus. Conversely, if they win you act like you are happy (when it’s clear you aren’t), but you still nitpick the win apart. Essentially, the only way you could be wrong would be for UK to blow out their opponent. Even then I would imagine you would have some excuse why it was a fluke. Well played, I didn’t realize louisville fans were that intelligent.

    We may very well drop this game, but I bet a lot of the same predictions were made before the WVU game. Just sayin’. Go CATS!

    So what we are suppose to lose, 5 point under dog. No big deal if we lose, all but one team has been beaten there this year. Some of you guys sound like we are playing a high school and how awful it will be if we lose.

      I am a troll but honestly they have been beating teams bad at home and its a hard place to play. Id have to say Arkansas by 8-16

    I think they got a better shot to win here than at Florida.
    They key is to limit turnovers and dominate the rebounding battle.
    Washington needs to be the 2nd best player on this team for them to be their best.

    My sources say that Ky and Hami will need to bring their “A” games for it to be competitive…

      Same for your cards. I haven’t heard if bagley will be back, he’s been out the last 3. Duke hasn’t really skipped a beat.
