College Basketball Betting Trends


The Tigers are 5-13 ATS in road games over the last two seasons. Auburn is 3-2 ATS in the last five meetings.


The Wildcats are 2-3 straight up in the last five meetings. Three of the last five meetings have stayed under the total.


The Tigers have had some flops on the road in conference play, but expect them to be up for this matchup. They already defeated the Wildcats on their home floor and should come in with the confidence they can do it again. Kentucky is in the driver's seat in the SEC and might not have the foot fully on the gas here. Auburn knows it needs a victory and while that might not happen, I am comfortable with the points being given to place my wager on the visitor.
