Kentucky opens as 23-point favorite against Columbia

Before Kentucky pours it on North Carolina this coming weekend, the Cats have a home contest with the Lions of Columbia University tomorrow night. The line for that game is now up and running in Las Vegas and, according to VegasInsider.com, UK opened as a 23-point favorite.

Columbia is coming off a 23-point win over Bucknell, so it’s time they’re handed a similar loss. I like UK to cover for the sixth time this season.

Your thoughts?

      Dang, you’re right, Catsby80! I just saw the sickening powder blue and thought it was UNC. But, still along those lines, UNC has had their share of tall awkward white guys with Hansborough, Zeller, etc.

    Gees only 23 points!? I’m not often overly confident but I don’t see cats having much trouble covering.

    BREAKING NEWS !!!!! Columbia wants to delay the game because of the trauma they feel from the recent court cases. They say they cannot possibly play under that kind of stress and trauma.
    Well they will know REAL trauma and what it’s like tomorrow after the CATS send em packing back home after the total beat down they get. I really hope the Cats never let up and hold these derps to less than 30 pts for the game.
