*4 Star CFB ATS Play of the Week* The Kentucky Wildcats are really strong in the trenches. They return a ton of depth and talent on both the offensive and defensive lines. Justin Rogers was a rare 5 star recruit on the defensive front for Kentucky too. He'll be a great addition to the defensive front. I'm most impressed by the depth in the trenches for Kentucky. They have the least turnover and best depth in the trenches of any team in the SEC East.
Auburn lost Brown and Davidson on the defensive line, and those are big hits. The Tigers still have good players on defense, but it will be hard to not dip at least some. On the other side of the ball, Auburn has 5 new offensive linemen, and this is a clear weakness for the Tigers. Kentucky should be able to take advantage of this. Auburn has good WR's, but the Kentucky secondary is loaded this season.
The Kentucky Wildcats will run the ball and look to shorten the clock. That makes a lot of their games lower scoring and tight games. Grabbing more than a touchdown with the much more experienced team that is stronger in the trenches is something I like to do whenever I can.
Auburn has dealt with a lot more COVID problems than Kentucky, and the Tigers have missed a lot of practices.
Take Kentucky plus the points here. I'll also put a small sprinkle on the moneyline.
