The Kentucky Wildcats travel to Vanderbilt to take on the Commodores Tuesday and John Martin suggests putting 1 unit on Kentucky to cover the spread. Oddmakers from online sportsbook Bodog opened the betting line at Vanderbilt –3.5, but the line has since risen to Vanderbilt –4.

Martin writes: The Kentucky Wildcats are on the outside looking in when it comes to the NCAA Tournament. Vanderbilt already has a tournament birth pretty much locked up despite a monumental collapse to end the season. The Wildcats will be the hungrier team tonight as they have a lot of ground to make up to make a tournament run. Kentucky is doing a damn good job of making up for their slow start with 5 straight wins SU and ATS. Kentucky is 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games overall now that their studs are finally healthy. The last 4 meetings between Kentucky and Vanderbilt have been decided by 6 points or less, including a 6-point win by Kentucky back on January 12th. Kentucky is 7-1 ATS in conference games this year. Vanderbilt is 0-7 ATS in home games off a road win over the last 3 seasons. Cash in with Kentucky as the underdog.

Public betting information shows that of the 4,728 wagers currently placed on tonight’s game, 71% of bettors like Vanderbilt to cover the 4-point spread.

Some trends to consider for tonight’s game:

-KENTUCKY is 0-6 ATS (-6.6 Units) in road games versus good offensive teams - scoring 77+ points/game after 15+ games over the last 2 seasons.

-KENTUCKY is 5-14 ATS (-10.4 Units) versus good offensive teams - scoring 77+ points/game over the last 2 seasons.
