Who We Like: Kentucky has covered the spread in four straight games and is finally playing its best basketball of the season. That has public bettors clamoring to get back on the Wildcat bandwagon but I see this as an opportunity to fade the trendy dog. The favorite is 6-1 against the spread in the last seven meetings between these two teams while the home team has cashed in six of the last eight meetings. Kentucky is also just 2-5 at the betting window in its last seven road games when playing an opponent with a home winning percentage of greater than .600 and Florida is 8-3-1 ATS in its last 12 games coming off a win of more than 20 points.
