Why Bet The Kentucky Wildcats

Kentucky (25-5 SU, 15-15 ATS) has won eight consecutive games including their 73-67 win over Vanderbilt on Tuesday despite failing to cover the spread as a 10.5-point home favorite. The Wildcats pulled off the largest comeback in the John Calipari era after rallying from a 19-point deficit to clinch at least tie of its 48th Southeastern Conference championship.

Freshman guard Malik Monk scored a game-high 27 points to lead Kentucky to victory. Kentucky can claim the title outright with a win at Texas A&M on Saturday. “We weren’t desperate enough to start the game,” Kentucky coach John Calipari said. “But I keep telling them, ‘I’m not responsible for your effort, your energy, your fight, you are.’

Why Bet The Texas A&M Aggies

The Aggies (16-13 SU, 11-15 ATS) have won two straight and three of their last four games and come into this matchup off a 60-43 smackdown win over Missouri on Tuesday while easily cover the college basketball betting line as a 3.5-point road favorite.

Texas A&M’s Tonny Trocha-Morelos scored a game-high 18 points and J.C. Hampton added 13 and the  Aggies limited Mizzou to just 24.6 percent shooting from the field to sweep the regular season series.

Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction

The Wildcats are the ‘super easy’ pick seeing as how they beat the hell out of Texas A&M 100-58 on Jan. 3 to cash in as a 14.5-point home favorite. This time around, the Wildcats will likely be favored by at least 10 points, but it won’t matter as Kentucky wins by 20.

My final score prediction is Kentucky 89 Texas A&M 69
