Kentucky Wildcats Betting Preview
The Kentucky Wildcats look for another win after beating New Mexico State on Monday. The Kentucky Wildcats look for their third 2-0 start in the last 5 years. The Kentucky Wildcats are averaging 86 points on 49.2 percent shooting and allowing 46 points on 32.1 percent shooting. Rob Dillingham is averaging 17 points and 5 rebounds, while DJ Wagner is averaging 13 points and 2 rebounds. Reed Sheppard is the third double-digit scorer and Justin Edwards is dishing 1 assist.

The Kentucky Wildcats are allowing 21.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 39 rebounds per game.
I am concerned about a possible look ahead spot for the Kentucky Wildcats, as they do have Kansas on deck for Tuesday. Also, the Texas A&M-Commerce Lions have had a tough schedule to prepare them for a spot like this, with games against Texas A&M and Texas Tech. With all that said, the Kentucky Wildcats won their opener rather easy, and they're going to blow a lot of teams out if the defensive effort remains the same. I'll lay the chalk with the Wildcats.
