Kentucky vs. Arkansas,
01/14/2014 21:00 EDT,
Score: 85 - 87
Point Spread: -1/-102 Kentucky
On Tuesday the SEC Power Play is on Kentucky. Game 529 at 9:00 eastern. The Wildcats are one of the few teams that have played well here as Arkansas has been one of the biggest home to road dichotomy teams in the nation the past few seasons. tonight they come home off back to back losses shooting under 40% both times and lost here to Florida last out and while many think they won't lose 2 straight here, that's exactly what will happen. The Cats are a better team and are ranked 15 in the RPI Scale and have played the 9th toughest schedule in the country, they are 5-1 vs teams ranked between 51 and 100 in the RPI like Arkansas which is ranked 90th and just 2-3 vs top 50 teams. The Hogs are 4-21 straight up as a dog, 2-9 vs teams who score 77 or more. Kentucky is 23-6 in the 2nd half of seasons vs winning teams and 7-2 vs teams who score 77 or more points per game. January has been their money month as they have won 17 of the last 19. They are off a nice win at Vanderbilt despite allowing a season high 50% from the field, a number that is likely to come down here tonight. Look for Kentucky to deal Arkansas a 3rd straight loss. Cats over Hogs tonight.
