Kentucky is a team that is just too talented against the Vols. The Wildcats are only giving up single digits in points, so I like them against most in the conference. Tennessee won’t be able to keep pace with the offensive firepower Kentucky has tonight. Monk should be able to dominate and lead UK to a cover.
