The Albany Great Danes and Kentucky Wildcats face off on Monday in a non-conference college basketball showdown at Rupp Arena. 

The Albany Great Danes have really struggled this year sitting with an 0-4 record and they have gone 1-3 against the spread. In the last game against Eastern Kentucky, the offense only scored 64 points and that led to the 13 point defeat. Albany is averaging 59.3 points per game while their defense is giving up 70.3 points per game. The best player for Albany has been Matt Cerruti who is averaging 12.2 points while shooting 46.2 percent from the field and 52.9 percent from behind the three point line. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Kentucky Wildcats who sit with a 3-1 record overall and they have gone 2-2 against the spread. In the last game against Ohio, the defense was strong giving up only 59 points, and that led to the victory. Kentucky is averaging 82 points while their defense is giving up 63.3 points per game.

Albany is 5-1 against the spread in their last six games played on Monday. Kentucky is 1-5 against the spread in their last six games played on Monday. The under is 4-0 in Albany’s last four games overall. The over is 6-1 in Kentucky’s last seven home games against a team with a losing road record. 

Albany has been awful and there is no reason to believe it’s going to be any different in this game. The Great Dane’s offense has been awful this season sitting and it’s going to be no different against Kentucky. I expect Kentucky is going to score at least 85 points, and they will win this game in blowout fashion. Back Kentucky against the spread and it wouldn’t be shocking if they win this game by 50 points.
