Kentucky is a 1 point favorite over Arkansas

Following a push against Vanderbilt on Saturday (unless you got in early), the Cats open up as a 1-point favorite tomorrow night against the Arkansas Razorbacks. Arkansas won last season’s meeting in Bud Walton by 13 points but the Cats are looking to win a second consecutive road game after a six-game skid away on the road prior to Saturday’s win.

Kentucky is 1-9-2 against the spread in its last 12 road games while Arkansas is 12-4 against the spread in its last 16 home games.

Go Cats. Gamble responsibly.

    We will have a chance if Doug Shows isn’t referring. He seems to find a way to show up for a couple of these road games every year, i.e. UL and Ark last year.

    This is a loss that will really hurt the RPI at the end of the season. Arkansas is a top 20 team at home and a top 100 on the road. They’ll end up with a bad record overall. Florida beat them there in OT by 2 Saturday so they are going to be ready for war. It’s gonna be a huge test. And after watching the last two games, one I don’t think the team is ready for. I hope they prove me wrong.

    I’ve seen the whole “6 game skid away from rupp” myth posted on this site several times sense we beat providence AWAY from Rupp on December 1st

      Game wasn’t considered a road game. Heck we were even the home team. Yes it was a a game away from Rupp but we were not the road team. Both are correct.

    Since we played there last year on their home floor, why is the game not at Rupp this year. Was just curious

      We play them in a home-home series this year since there are no more divisions in the SEC

    Take the point and run. We’re not ready to win this kind of game yet. Hope I’m wrong but I’m not.

    Vegas has been right on the money the last 2 games. Let’s hope they are right again. I will take a 1 point win anytime at Arkansas.

    11 is correct. We opened as a 2.5 point favorite. All the early money is coming in on Arkansas. Florida got REALLY lucky to get out of there with a win Saturday and Florida is ahead of us at this point (doubt they will be in 2 weeks). We lose this game 6 out of 10 times at this point. Hope tomorrow night is one of the 4. And I hope our fans don’t go nuts if we get beat. I like where we are right now, but tomorrow night will be really tough.
