Kentucky finally put together a respectable performance on Saturday, starting its home game against LSU on fire and maintaining that lead for the majority of the game. The 82-69 victory improved the Wildcats to 5-9 on the season and 6-8 ATS. Prior to Saturday’s win, Kentucky had won just three of its previous 12 games. Now it goes on the road to face an absolute beast from the SEC in Alabama, and that hasn’t worked well for Kentucky this season. The Wildcats are just 2-6 in games away from home — although, it’s worth noting the 4-4 record ATS. While fading Kentucky has worked well, this is more about backing ‘Bama, who is 13-3 overall, 7-1 at home and 10-5-1 ATS on the season. The Tide rides a nine-game winning streak into this one. Despite missing the cover by 1.5-points in Saturday’s win, Alabama is on a 7-1-1 ATS run. The Tide have steamrolled SEC competition multiple times throughout that streak, with the three wins prior to Saturday’s all coming by 20-plus. One of those wins was by 20 at Kentucky.
