Kentucky laying too many points to LSU?
No. 22 Kentucky will be in a revenge spot today when it hosts unranked LSU at 2:00PM ET. Are the Wildcats laying too many points?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Wildcats are 13-point home favorites over the Tigers while the over/under is sitting at 155 points. (Shop and compare lines for all of today's NCAA men's basketball games.)
LSU has been a horrible bet of late. The Tigers have failed to cover in four of their last five games, are just 1-6 ATS in their last seven road games and are 2-7 against the number in their last nine games when coming off a win.
But LSU also gives Kentucky hell when the two teams play. Not only did the Tigers beat the then-No. 9 Wildcats 85-67 earlier this season, but LSU is also 6-1 against the spread in its last seven games versus Kentucky. The Tigers have also covered the spread in six of their last eight trips to Lexington.
Plenty has gone wrong for LSU this season but the Tigers are still ultra-talented with Ben Simmons on the floor and the 13 points almost seem like a gift.
