Once again the best game of the SEC-Big 12 Challenge, No. 2 Kansas and No. 4 Kentucky face off Saturday night with the Wildcats serving as hosts this time around. Kansas won last year’s game at Allen Fieldhouse, and the sharps are expecting the home team to win the rematch.

Kentucky, which began betting as 5-point favorites to win, are a 7-point favorite on most sports books with a couple listing a line of 7.5 points according to OddsShark. The point total, which began at 171 points, has dropped to either 167 or 167.5 points depending upon the sports book. OddsShark projects a final score of 80-78 in favor of Kentucky. The big personnel move leading up to this game was Kansas head coach suspending forward Carlton Bragg Jr. indefinitely, which leaves the Jayhawks short a front court contributor.

The Jayhawks, a 16-point loser at West Virginia on Tuesday, are 18-2 on the season straight up but just 6-12 against the spread. In road games this season, Kansas is 2-4 ATS with their lone Big 12 road win ATS coming at Iowa State. 8-10 with the OVER on the season, the Jayhawks have dropped their last five games ATS.
