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.
