College Basketball Betting Trends
The Bulldogs are 2-5 ATS in their last seven Tuesday games. Georgia is 1-4 ATS in its last five road games.
The Wildcats are 2-5 ATS in their last seven Tuesday games. The favorite is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings.
The Wildcats already beat the Bulldogs by nine on the road two weeks ago, but had to use a strong second half to pull away. I think Kentucky might rest on its laurels here knowing it already has one in the bag against Georgia, but the Bulldogs are capable of sticking around as long as enough shots are falling. While Georgia is outclassed here, I think its offense can keep it in long enough to stay within the double-digit number.
