Kentucky vs. Kansas College Basketball Prediction

There’s value in the underdog tonight, with the Wildcats covering in four straight games when coming off a loss. Even more profitable is the fact that Kentucky is 12-2-2 against the number in its last 16 games at a neutral site when playing in the underdog role. The Wildcats are also 5-1 against the spread in their last six games when they failed to cover in their previous contest.

Kentucky is also profitable overall dating back to last season, posting a 9-3 ATS record over its last 12 games. The Wildcats are also 5-2 against the number in their last seven games versus a team with a winning percentage below .400 and 4-1 against the number in their last five games as an underdog.

Meanwhile, Kansas is winless at the betting window at 0-4 against the spread in its last four games following a win of more than 20 points. The favorite is 7-2 against the spread in the last nine meetings between these two teams but I’m bucking that trend and taking the underdog ‘Cats tonight.
