Against The Spread Pick

Both teams are playing great basketball right now and are riding three-game win streaks. Kentucky is now tied for first place in the SEC with a conference record of 9-2. However, Ole Miss is just 4-7 in the conference and they are well outside the projected NCAA Tournament field. Even if the Rebels were to pull off this massive upset, it probably would still not be enough to get considered by the committee as of right now. Note that Ole Miss is just 1-6 straight up in road games this season, while Kentucky is 13-1 at home. However, the Wildcats are just 6-8 against the spread at Rupp Arena, so they are having trouble putting teams away. Ole Miss is just 2-6 ATS against Kentucky in their last 8 head to head meetings, so I would have to lean towards the home side laying the points.

Over Under Pick

This is not a total I love because both teams have showed they can be inconsistent scoring the basketball. Especially Ole Miss, who scores nearly 70 points per game, but only around 60 per game on the road. Kentucky’s defense has also been much better at home, where they allow an average of only 62.9 points. Due to the road struggles of the Rebels, I would lean to the under here but again, this is probably a total I would stay away from.
