Kentucky is 4-11-1 ATS in their last 16 road games and 1-11 ATS in their last 12 Tuesday games. The under is 6-2 in Kentucky’s last 8 road games. Tennessee is 12-3-1 ATS in their last 16 games following an ATS loss. The under is 9-3 in Tennessee’s last 12 Tuesday games. The road team is 5-1 ATS in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings.
These two teams come into this game ranked second and third within the SEC conference, with Kentucky being second. Both teams have been playing great basketball this season, anchored by really great defensive play. With this in mind, I am taking the under here as I think it will be a slow paced game with plenty of defense.
