Vegas has spoken, and despite Kentucky’s disappointing effort in Knoxville yesterday, they like the Cats by two scores against Middle Tennessee State.

The opening line has been released, with Kentucky opening as a 14-point favorite over the Blue Raiders of MTSU.

BetOnline also picked the Cats to win by 14, while Opening likes Kentucky by 14 1/2.

What do you guys think? Fair?

Go Cats.

      MTSU gave up 32 last week vs one of the bottom 10 teams in the Country UTEP. Evn Gran will get points vs that D. MTSU does have a decent QB and has put up points, but not against the big boy teams. We should easily cover but gotta say as long as Gran calls the plays I would not put my money on him.

      Line won’t block cause the QB can’t throw…the coaching staff is in disarray and the players are unhappy

      You know I hate those type of fans but man I feel like one. I hope we cover the spread.

      I know what you are saying and I feel awful about saying it. But I just don’t feel like with the way we are playing we will blow them out like we all thought we would a couple weeks ago.

    I have been as frustrated with Gran as anyone, but I believe we will right the ship and win these last two games big.

      And then Eddie Gran will get a new contract from Barnyard… who is so proud of our football team making it to another bowl! Yippee! ?

      One day you’ll be watching a NFL game and a TE named CJ Conrad will be catching passes and people will be like dang who is this guy? Eddie Gran will be one of them

    This team isn’t blowing anyone out at this point. Probably 14 -7 with defense and special teams scoring.

    We will win by 28 at least.

      We can’t put up 28 points let alone beat a team by 28. You can’t be serious.

      It takes us 9 games to score that much dude . Facts

      Vandy beat them 49 to 7. I’m sure we will win easy. They arent an sec team. I think we score a bunch. We will see though. Pessimist vs optimist. When we score 49 or so you same people will say because we played the worst team ever. If our offensive line cant move this team I’ll be sad

    I wouldn’t go within 100 feet of that spread….either way. That has trouble written ALL over it.

    We will win the last 2 and get blitzed in either the Citrus or Outback Bowl.

      I agree. Win last two and most likely get beat in bowl game. 9-4 Heck Yes! I’ll take it. Thank you Josh Allen for coming back for your Senior year.

    He’s said that before. I’ll believe it when it happens.

    Don’t we have to be able to score 14 points in order to be 14-point favorites?

      If we shut them out 14-0 we still lose lol

    I don’t think Kentucky can score 14 on Lawrence county.

    As long as we play with the playbook (that’s funny) we have, no we won’t win. If we do it will be a defensive style game. MTSU is 7-3, just like us, but they THROW THE BALL!!!!!!!! Not hand off to Benny. By the way, our work horse is now looking like a mule
