Bet on Fort Wayne vs. Kentucky

These two have no recent meetings to consider. Kentucky is 0-4 against the spread in its last four home games and 1-4-1 ATS in their last six non-conference games. Ft. Wayne is 13-6 ATS in its last 19 Wednesday games and 33-15-5 ATS in their last 53 non-conference games. The public betting is backing Kentucky tonight, but the Wildcats have played to the level of their competition all season and I don’t see that changing tonight.
