According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Wildcats are 7.5-point road favorites to knock off the Volunteers tonight. Kentucky enters play with a 16-5 record and is 9-12 against the spread, while Tennessee is just 10-11 overall but 10-9 at the betting window.

The Wildcats have been a strong bet coming off a loss, covering in five of their last six games in those situations (3-1 ATS this season). They've also been great in conference play, going 12-4-2 against the spread in their last 18 games versus SEC opponents.

The Volunteers, however, have night been profitable of late. They're 3-7-1 against the number in their last 11 games overall and just 7-16-2 ATS in their last 25 home games. One other trend to consider: They're 3-14-1 ATS in their last 18 home games versus a team with a losing road record.

The under has also been a profitable wager in this series, hitting in four of the last five meetings in Knoxville. The under is also 9-2-1 in the last 12 meetings between these two teams overall.
