Score: 55 - 85
Point Spread: -19/-105 Kentucky
The Kentucky Wildcats picked up a huge victory for their tournament chances this past weekend when they beat Missouri.
I was on Kentucky in that game and I see value on the Wildcats again in this one.
Should the Wildcats be favored by 19 without Noel in the post as a star shot blocker? Against Mississippi State, I would argue that they should be an even bigger favorite.
Consider the fact that Mississippi State has lost two of their last four games by more than 40 points. One of those was against Missouri, and the other was against a mediocre Vanderbilt team.
Kentucky doesn't have Noel now, but they still have a plethora of talent. The Wildcats guards are getting better, and they should be able to get to the rim in this one.
Kyle Wiltjer is shooting the ball very well, and he should get open looks against the Bulldogs.
Mississippi State isn’t good at much of anything, but they like to run and try to beat teams down the floor. Kentucky is too athletic for them, and their style of play should play right into Kentucky's hands.
Mississippi State is 5-12 ATS in their last 17 road games. Take Kentucky.
Good Luck, Razor Ray.
