Kentucky opens as 3-point favorites over Mississippi State

I can’t say I saw this one coming. Kentucky will open as 3-point favorites over Mississippi State this Saturday with the over/under set at 55.5.

One would think this is good news, but quite the opposite. As home favorites under Mark Stoops, Kentucky is 0-7 against the spread, and 4-3 straight up. There’s no surprise this is a tight line given the inconsistency both teams have shown in two weeks, but I will admit I thought Mississippi State would get more love from Vegas after their dismantling of LSU in Week 1.

This line might move in Mississippi State’s favor by the end of the week, maybe even down to a pick ’em, but that over/under being set at 55.5 is tempting, given Mike Leach’s air raid offense will be going up against a Kentucky secondary that is giving up over 270 yards and three touchdowns through the air.

Should be a good one in Lexington for Leach’s return.

    Better figure out how to stop the pass quickly

      We should be favored just like we should have won the last two if we don’t hurt ourselves.

    UK has not lost their first 3 games since 1967. Gotta win this one.

      Interesting. Not feeling good about the game next week. I think we lose by multiple touchdowns.

    Unbelievable; some people in Vegas obviously did not watch our game yesterday.

    Will be a shoot out. Can we put up 40 on MSST? They’ll put up 40 on us

    In any case, I like my team!
