According to the folks in Vegas, the Wildcats don’t have much of a chance against Louisville. Kentucky opens up on the betting lines as a 24 and a half point underdog on the road. That’s the second-highest margin of the season, as Alabama opened up as a 34.5 favorite over the Cats.
Surprisingly, that’s a little bit more of a cushion for the Cats than expected. With the Cardinals coming off of an upset from Houston, you’d think that would’ve weigh more on the gamblers in Vegas.
Nonetheless, the Cats haven’t paid any mind to the betting lines this year. With UK’s strong running game, the Cats shouldn’t allow Louisville enough time to run away with the game. It could go down to the wire, as this rivalry has in recent years. In order for that to happen, Kentucky can’t come out playing slow. They have to fight and be ready to run for that goal line.
