We may still be 53 days away from kickoff, but Vegas has already made their call for Kentucky football’s season-opener against Toledo.
Bovada released their opening lines for the first week of college football, and your beloved Wildcats are 12.5-point favorites over the Rockets.
Last season, Toledo finished No. 2 in the MAC with a final record of 7-6, including wins over Nevada, Western Michigan, Kent State, and Central Michigan, among others.
The team’s starting quarterback, Eli Peters, will be back under center for the Rockets, with former Kentucky running back Bryant Koback also returning as the team’s leading rusher.
On the outside, Toledo will be losing their three leading receivers from this past year in Diontae Johnson, Jon’Vea Johnson, and Cody Thompson.
As for the Wildcats, starting quarterback Terry Wilson is back for another year, with Lynn Bowden, AJ Rose, and Justin Rigg considered three of Kentucky’s go-to weapons this season.
Will it be enough to beat the spread to open the year?
