Ready for some good news and bad news? Let’s start with the good- Kentucky has opened as a one-point favorite in its November 10th game at Tennessee according to Covers.com.
UK defeated Tennessee last season but it wasn’t an upset. The Cats opened as a four-point favorite over the Vols last year before defeating Tennessee in dramatic fashion. Obviously much will change between now and kickoff between the Cats and Vols, which is just within six months, but it’s not a bad thing to be favored against your rival.
Which brings me to the bad news.
Covers.com says Louisville is a nine-point favorite over Kentucky. The Cats and Cards will end the 2018 regular season on November 24th, but hey, maybe it’s not all bad news. The last time UK went to Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium the Cats were a 27.5 point underdog. Then Lamar fumbled and then Kentucky pulled off an amazing upset.
I wouldn’t get too worked up over football lines. Spring football just ended and it’s technically not even summer, but that’s also why it’s a perfect time to make a post about spreads six month out. Hurry up football. We miss you. We need you.
