Against The Spread Pick
The Kentucky Wildcats are arguably the best team in the SEC this season. They enter this game ranked 15 in the nation with a record of 13-4, which includes a conference record of 4-1. The Wildcats have won five of their previous six games, including a 73-66 road win over the Arkansas Razorbacks on Saturday. They will look to build momentum following that win when they host the Georgia Bulldogs on Tuesday. Meanwhile, the Georgia Bulldogs are coming off an embarrassing 59-91 loss on the road against the Mississippi State Bulldogs. The loss drops their record of 11-6 and conference record to 1-3, which puts them in 11th place in the SEC. Kentucky is the superior team in this contest, and I look for that to show up on the scoreboard with a win and an 11.5-point cover.
Over Under Pick
Georgia is one of the highest-scoring teams in the country. They enter this game averaging 77.59 points per game, which ranks 44th in the nation. However, they are an average team defensively as they are allowing opponents to score 74.29 points per game. Meanwhile, the Kentucky Wildcats are averaging 74.88 points per game, which is right around the national average. Defensively, the Wildcats are one of the better teams in the country as they are limiting opponents to 63.82 points per game. I look for the over 145 points to hit in this spot.
