College Basketball Odds: No. 1 Kentucky Wildcats Attempt to Roll Tide
There's no doubt about it: the Kentucky Wildcats are THE team of the 2014-2015 college basketball season. They have currently rattled off 16 straight wins at 9-7 ATS, ending up being the runaway March Madness favorites. The Kentucky Wildcats odds currently stand at even money. They'll attempt to keep the great times rolling this Saturday (4:00 PM ET, ESPN) when they go to the Alabama Crimson Tide.
Wildcats head coach John Calipari is quickly becoming one of the leading employers in the sport. This year's crop of UK freshmen is packed with skill, consisting of 6-foot-11 forward Karl-Anthony Towns (27.3 PER), who's putting up 17.1 points, 13.7 rebounds and 4.8 blocks per 40 minutes. Towns and 7-foot junior forward Willie Cauley-Stein (27.5 PER) offer Kentucky the leading defense in Division I, according to Ken Pomeroy's performance statistics. The under is 12-4 when the Wildcats play.
The Crimson Tide (12-4 SU, 8-5-1 ATS) have actually played some great basketball this year, and while they had their six-game winning streak snapped on Tuesday by the South Carolina Gamecocks, the Tide still moneyed in as 4-point road dogs in a competitive 68-66 loss. Alabama will certainly be at a severe height downside in Saturday's match. The under may be the ideal play right here after going 5-1 in Alabama's previous 6 games.
