For the first time in decades, Kentucky will look to win back-to-back games at the Swamp, except this time they will do so as 23-point underdogs. The O/U is set at 57.

Look, last week I sat here and said to take Kentucky at 30.5. I also said take the under. Not only did Alabama cover 30.5, but they also doubled it, dammit. The Tide also hit the over BY THEMSELVES.
In my defense, I did not anticipate some crucial UK stars being ruled out of the game against Alabama. I typically throw my thoughts in on the spread six days in advance, but the COVID-bug bit the Kentucky football team and the Kentucky backers.
With no guarantee on what either roster will look like come Saturday, I would probably hold off on betting this game, at least until Friday night or Saturday morning. 23 sounds about right, and I would probably take Florida, but lessons were learned last night.
Go Cats, bet responsibly.
