Some of these bets on UK basketball are free money

The sports book at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas is giving away money right now. If I had the time to do it, I’d fly there and back tomorrow to get in on the giveaway before its too late, and there are sites that have their own sportbooks using an specific software sportsbook that online sites can get.

A friend of the program who was out in Vegas last week passed along some of the available bets for college basketball and many of the Kentucky-related odds are looking like a snack. The one that really attracts my eye the most is the season win total at 24.5 games.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with how this works, you take over or under 24.5 wins in the regular season. The over would require the Cats win 25 games (that allows six losses) for you to hit payday.


There are some attractive options in the early game lines, too. Kentucky is currently a 6.5 point favorite against Louisville (take my money), a pick ’em against Duke, a 1.5 point favorite against Kansas, and a pick ’em against North Carolina.


Who has a private jet that wants to make a quick trip out west with me?

    I can’t bring myself to put money on CATS games, but those are tempting.

    So SEC tourney is included? I would’ve figured it would be 28 games rather than 31

    I dunno……given the strength of our out-of-conference schedule and the vastly improved SEC, 25 wins might be tougher than you think. As the fine print says, this is for regular season only. We will absolutely lose 2-3 conference road games, and I’ve learned the hard way how eerily accurate Vegas is.
