Kentucky vs Tennessee Prediction | College Basketball Betting Picks
They put this game on ESPN tonight for a reason; this is a damn good matchup. Kentucky is playing like one of the best teams in the country right now, while Tennessee is taking care of business as well.
These two teams met exactly a month ago. The result was a 107-79 victory for the Wildcats. Tennessee shot 53.4% in the game, but it’s irrelevant when Kentucky is shooting 67.9% and 20-21 from the free throw line. Things will be tougher for them in Knoxville tonight.
We will not be seeing any team cross the century mark tonight. This line is inflated due to how well both teams shot the last time they played each other. However, Tennessee has one of the better defenses in the country, especially when they play at home. Look for the shooting percentages to be far lower tonight, as the point total goes under.
For what it’s worth, the ESPN Matchup Predictor gives Tennessee a 56% chance to win.
