Vegas has spoken…

Kentucky has opened up as a 9.5-point favorite for Saturday’s matchup against the Ole Miss Rebels on ESPN at 2 p.m.

Ole Miss comes into Rupp Arena in the bottom half of the SEC standings, currently sitting on a 4-7 conference record. They are riding a three-game win streak with victories over South Carolina, Florida, and Mississippi State, but are 0-4 against ranked opponents this season.

Kentucky is 11-12-0 against the spread this year while Ole Miss is 11-11-1. According to ESPN’s Matchup Predictor, Kentucky has an 86.7 percent chance to beat the Rebels. The Wildcats have won 10 consecutive games against Ole Miss inside Rupp.

Happy betting.
