Kentucky has won titles each of the last three years they’ve won at UT, Vandy, and LSU

Kentucky has had its fair share of disappointing losses – Evansville, Utah, and South Carolina being the three stinkers – but the impressive victories are now starting to pile up for the Wildcats.

On the year, they’ve now defeated the likes of Michigan State (neutral floor), Louisville, Texas Tech (road), Mississippi State, Tennessee (road), and LSU (road).

Kentucky’s resume had been one of the key reasons for the Wildcats falling short in most advanced rating systems, but what if I told you I had a statistic for you that threw all of the analytics and numbers out the window?

According to Corey Price of UK Athletics, Kentucky’s crucial road victories over Tennessee, Vanderbilt, and LSU bode well for the team’s chances in the NCAA Tournament.

The last three seasons the Wildcats pulled off road victories in Knoxville, Nashville, and Baton Rouge were in 2011-2012, 1997-1998, and 1995-1996.

What’s the significance of those three years? You guessed it, Kentucky has won a national championship.

Say what you want about the team and whether they look the part of a group capable of winning a title, but numbers never lie.

    That’s why I’m putting 100$ on this team to win it all . 26 to 1 is an amazing deal . It’s really a inside treat cuz bbn knows this team is capable but media and Vegas don’t know

    I’m just gonna say Vegas knows way more than anybody around here, outside the team, does.

    The real key is winning two games in the Final Four.
