Kentucky has had issues against good teams but they are still going to beat up on bad teams this season. North Florida is giving up 82 points per game and Kentucky is going to have no issue running up the score. I expect Kentucky is going to get to 100 points, and that will be the difference here. Back Kentucky against the spread.
