Mississippi State opens as 10-point favorites

Vegas has spoken and they don’t seem to have as much confidence in the Cats. Kentucky will open as a 10 point underdog in their trip to Starkville on Saturday. Speaking as someone who does not know a lot about everything that goes into creating a spread, I do expect for that number to go more towards the Cats favor.

Something to keep in mind is that Mississippi State, unlike Kentucky, has yet to play in a close game. In fact, their closest game of the season was yesterday in their 35-10 win over BYU.

Overall, what does all of this mean? Absolutely nothing. I like this team and like their chances in Starkville. Go Cats. Beat Mississippi State.

    I do feel this team has performed better on the road thus far and the last part of last season

    But this is closer then what everyone thinks. They’re giving them some credit because it’s at their home. Not to say UK is favored but I would like to think closely matched. Look forward to a good game and a BIG road win. GO BIG BLUE!!!

    You guys are crazy. Kentucky is over-rated. They are 5-1 against very weak competition and have had some luck go their way. They could very easily be 1-5. They will be handily defeated this Saturday. They will win only one more game the rest of the way… maybe 2. This is typical Stoops team/record. Another at max 6 win season.

      You sound a lot more like a “Real Louisville Fan” to me! First of all Kentucky can’t be “over-rated,” as they’re not rated anything at the moment. And you seem to forget that they got to 5-1 playing most of the season so far with their best player, Jordan Jones, out with injuries.

      “Another at max 6 win season.” Whatever. When they get Win #7, I hope you come back here and admit how wrong you are, but I’m sure you won’t. Go back to the Card Chronicle and try to figure out how to beat the mighty Eagles of Boston College.

      Then find a new team to cheer for, we won’t miss ya

    • Saying “win only one more game the rest of the way… maybe 2” and then “at max 6 win season” are 2 conflicting statements. Try again.
