Alabama Crimson Tide vs Kentucky Wildcats prediction

The Alabama Crimson Tide and free points are hard to turn down because they're a great team, and you're not going to get them in these spots often. However, you're also not going to get Kentucky as a small home favorite frequently. The Kentucky Wildcats are 12-4 SU at home this season, and this is a young team that plays to the crowd and will be juiced up for this one. It feels like Kentucky could get off to a strong start and ride the momentum until the end. Should be a fun one, but I lean toward Kentucky.
