For a fifth straight season, Kentucky has advanced to the Southeastern Conference Championship game. Will John Calipari’s crew make it four in a row or will Tennessee knock them off?
If you know anything about the state of Tennessee, they hate people from Kentucky, especially those associated with the state university. Everyone from the Volunteer state knows Tennessee is going to be in the NCAA tournament, which makes this state pride an adding a rare accomplishment.
For college basketball odds, we are figuring this could be a one-point game either way unless the sportsbooks are anticipating Kentucky money and shade them more.
Kentucky (23-10, 15-17-1 ATS) has been a focal point of discussion all season long and most of it was not positive. As compared to most of the recent vintage groups Coach Calipari has brought in to Lexington, this contingent was not oozing NBA-ready talent. These Wildcats did not always play together and seemed unsure of themselves.
