Betting on the Kentucky Wildcats (odds)
Record: 10-6 Overall/1-3 Conference
Kentucky suffered another loss Tuesday, as the Wildcats got dished out a 78-68 defeat by the South Carolina Gamecocks in Lexington. The Wildcats have now lost their last two games and are just 2-3 straight up in their last five outings overall. Oscar Tshiebwe generated a double-double for Kentucky versus South Carolina, and he will remain to be the rock for the Wildcats, who are averaging 76.3 points per game. Tshiebwe provides hope for Kentucky, in part because of his rebounding. With Tshiebwe leading Kentucky on the glass, the Wildcats get lots of extra possession that also kills scoring opportunities for the other side. On the season, the Wildcats are third in the nation with a 38.8 percent offensive rebound rate.
The Over is 5-1 in Kentucky’s last six games overall
