Is No. 9 Kentucky going to experience much resistance when it hits the road today to face Texas A&M at Noon ET?

According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Kentucky is favored on the road in this one, as the Wildcats are getting odds of -8 points against Texas A&M. The over/under total for the contest is listed at 146.5 points. Kentucky owns a 100-58 win at home over the Aggies back on Jan. 3 of this season.

Kentucky is rolling along in the win/loss column, having prevailed in seven straight games following a 73-67 win over Vanderbilt this week. The Wildcats sit at 25-5 on the season and 15-2 in the SEC. Despite the winning, covering hasn’t been something UK has been great at. They are just 3-7 against the spread in their last 10 and are 15-15 ATS on the season. Kentucky has an offense that averages 87.3 games on the season, but just 79 on the road. The defense allows 72.4 points per game overall and 75.3 on the road. Malik Monk has been the team leader with 21.7 points per game while De’Aaron Fox adds 15.4 points and 5.2 assists per contest.

Texas A&M is coming off a 60-43 win at Missouri this week to move to 16-13 overall and 8-9 in the SEC. The Aggies are just 11-15 against the spread on the season, including just 4-8 ATS at home. A&M averages 71.4 points per game on offense while giving up 67.8 on defense. When at home, the defensive average drops down to just 62.5 points per game. Tyler Davis has been the team leader with 14.1 points and 6.9 rebounds per game while Admon Gilder adds 13.5 points per contest.

Bet on Kentucky vs. Texas A&M

Kentucky has been hard to trust, but I think the Wildcats are getting good value with giving up just 8 points. The Wildcats already dominated this team, so they know they have favorable matchups to exploit. UK is also looking to lock up the outright SEC title with a win, so the Wildcats won’t be looking ahead to postseason play today. A&M has also been shaky at home, losing by 14 to the likes of Vanderbilt just a few weeks ago.
