Vegas has spoken and Kentucky is a 28.5-point favorite over Tennessee State in tonight’s game at Rupp Arena.
While the Cats are looking better offensively, the smart money is probably still on the Tigers. Not only is Kentucky 1-4 against the spread so far this season, Tennessee State is fifth nationally in three-pointers with 12.2 per game. As the last two games have shown, this Kentucky team’s perimeter defense is woeful; in fact, the Cats are 346th in three-point defense through five games. Ouch.
Nowhere to go but up!
