Results: W, $300Analysis: I like Kentucky here, too. It's
the two public plays here, but it's going to take a lot of things
to happen for this not get there. This is a 3* and I'll get the
rating changed. First off, we know the Wildcats are going to
control the pace no matter where this game is played, and add to
that the fact that they suffered an "L" here last season. They may
have a lot of new players, but Calipari remembers, trust me. It was
also their lowest offensive output of the season, 62 points. This
season Vanderbilt's defense isn't (or hasn't been) even close to
the level they played at last season. Kentucky has not been turning
the ball over, they ARE a great offensive rebounding team, and
Vanderbilt has not been great on the glass. These are reasons to
like the Wildcats, too. But, even though Kentucky has been a good
perimeter defending team, Vanderbilt will be by far their biggest
challenge. They shoot over 40% from behind the arc and have
multiple players that can hit it. Vanderbilt may get some calls
being at home, and they shoot a whopping 77% from the line. Every
way I look at this Kentucky gets to 90 points - it's simply a
matter of Vanderbilt contributing, and if they don't early, they
will late because they'll simply have to push the pace. That could
mean Kentucky gets to 100.
In the NBA I am considering Utah. Pissed about missing a
better number, so I might play it smaller.
Other CBB leans/possible adds:
Niagra: Manhattan shouldn't be -6 to anyone, really.
T-Tech ML: I like them last night, match up issue for K-State,
but an leery of the market move so far.
Missouri: Yes, they have issues. It's Auburn on the
EMU ML: Simply following and they ARE the much better
