Most sports books set Kentucky’s season win total at 6.5 games for the upcoming football season. College football analyst Kirk Herbstreit, who knows a little bit about the sport, loves the line at 6.5 wins because he sees easy money to be made.
During an appearance on ESPN on Tuesday, Herbstreit said his favorite bet among college football win totals is the Kentucky OVER. For those who don’t know what that means, Herbstreit is predicting Kentucky will win at least seven games this fall. For it to be his favorite bet out of all the options that are out there, he is really confident in Kentucky winning at least seven games.
It’s not the first time Herbstreit has been high on the Cats. Back in 2017, he said Kentucky was his sleeper team in the SEC (missed it by a year).
Let’s hope he’s right in his forecast of this year’s team.
