LSU vs. Kentucky,

Score: 51 - 60
Point Spread: -16½/-105 Kentucky
Today's winner is Kentucky over LSU. This is my SEC Game of the Year.
Kentucky has the #1 seed in the Big Tourney. The Wildcats average margin of victory is 19.2 PPG. They have won and covered the L3 meetings over the Tigers by 26, 38, and 24 points. This squad strikes fear in the opposition while getting the bettors paid, covering 8 of their L11 contests. They shoot 49% from the field and allow a mere 36% shooting on "D". The front line of Davis, Jones, and Kidd-Gilcrest are teaming up for 38.6 PPG and 24.2 RPG. Anthony Davis has tallied 145 blocked shots this season. They face an LSU team that has lost and failed to cover 3 straight before yesterdays win over a hapless Arkansas team. The Tigers don't have the muscle down low and are a laughable 31% beyond the arc with just 5 3-pointers per game. The favorite is 4-0 ATS the L4 meetings. Take Kentucky. Thank you.
