Coming off an impressive 50-7 victory over UT-Martin, and covering the 30.5 spread in the process, the Cats now open as four-point favorites over Louisville this Saturday. The over-under is set at 51.
This season, Kentucky is 8-3 against the spread, while Louisville matches their win/loss record at 7-4.
Despite having faith the Cats can cover that spread, I wouldn’t be shocked to see the early money going to Louisville. But as the week goes on, Kentucky and its run-heavy offense might get some love as we approach game time – especially if the forecast continues to call for rain.
The Battle for the Governors Cup kicks off at noon at Kroger Field.
Go Cats, L’s Down.
