Kentucky is 3-10-1 ATS in their last 14 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games. The under is 5-1 in Kentucky’s last 6 road games. Alabama is 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 Saturday games and 1-6-1 ATS in their last 8 games. The over is 7-2 in Alabama’s last 9 games. The home team is 5-2 ATS in these two teams last 7 head to head meetings.
This should be a fun game to watch with a lot of points scored by each team. Alabama has a good team, but they play inconsistently, while Kentucky’s team is ranked #5 in the nation. I am taking Alabama to win this game due to the home court advantage.
