Kentucky is a 4.5 point favorite over Alabama

Las Vegas likes Kentucky to get back in the win column on Saturday. According to the sports books out there in the desert, the Cats are giving up 4.5 points to the visiting Crimson Tide.

If you’re wondering how Kentucky has performed against the spread lately: close your eyes and picture a big pile of money sitting on a long wooden table; then pour gasoline all over the pile until it’s completely soaked; and then set it on fire. That’s how it’s been for Kentucky backers over the last five games.

Good luck, everyone.

    This game worries me. Alabama has 5 wins over top 25 teams and are a tournament team. That being said I think we win by 5 or more so I’d probably play UK.

    Bold prediction:
    UK season comes to an end and we will return to NIT again. Our usual mistakes show up again. Turnovers, missed free throws, blown defensive assignments, and overall lack of effort. Bama wins farely easy 70-58

      I hope not, but our problems can’t be fixed in a short amount of time. We can’t shoot, pass, and Diallo can’t dribble. Those are basketball fundamentals, and we are lacking them.

      Ya know, there is NO WAY that you should be allowed to use anything like “BigBlue” in your username. Should probably be something like LoservilleLip. Or maybe just drop the “e” at the end. You aren’t fooling anyone. Might as well come out of the closet and own up to the fact that you and CodeRed have been spooning on Mama’s couch.

    Leave Diallo in the locker room and we might have a chance

      Coming up stairs and asking your mom doesn’t count as a source.

    I don’t see how anyone who has paid attention to how this team plays predicts a win tomorrow. We can’t string enough positive plays together to (1) build a comfortable margin or (2) cut into a lead when we get behind. Hoping for the best expecting the worst. However it could always be worse like being an Indiana fan, another NIT bid awaits them if they choose to accept it!
