The fine folks down in Las Vegas have spoken.

The No. 10 Kentucky Wildcats (21-5) have opened up as a 4.5-point favorite to take down the Florida Gators (17-9) on Saturday at 6 p.m. inside Rupp Arena on ESPN.

ESPN’s Basketball Power Index gives the ‘Cats a 67.2 percent chance to beat the Gators. UK is 12-13-0 against the spread this season while UF is 10-15-0. The over/under has been set at 139.

This will be the first of two matchups between these two teams, with the second game coming down in Gainesville to close Kentucky’s regular season.

Happy betting.

    4.5 seems kinda low but if Kentucky plays down to it’s competition as usual, I guess it’s another nail biter Saturday!
