Kentucky Wildcats  Betting Prediction

First, we have the Tennessee vs Kentucky Betting prediction for the Wildcats.

Kentucky has won six of their last seven games and four in a row. They are at their best right now. They would get a double bye into the quarterfinals of the SEC Tournament and a better spot in the Big Dance if they won.

Joe Lunardi ranks Kentucky as the 4th best team in the Midwest and Tennessee as the best team in the West. KenPom ranks Kentucky 18th overall and 8th in Adjusted Offensive Efficiency.

They beat Vanderbilt 93–77 at home on Wednesday night in their last game. The lottery will pick Rob Dillingham if he comes out, and Antonio Reeves got 20 points on senior night. 51% of their shots were from the field, and 41% (11 of 27) were from long range.

Senior guard Reeves, who is 6 feet 5 inches tall and started his career at Illinois State, scores 20 points per game and makes 87.9% of his free throws. He also hits 43.5% from three-point range.

Both Dillingham (15.1 ppg, 3.8 apg, 44.4% 3pt) and Sheppard (12.2 ppg, 4.5 apg, 51.2% 3pt) are freshmen. If they leave after the season, they could be in the NBA Lottery.

Since Kentucky plays quickly, they give up 79.1 points per game, which ranks 339th. They let opponents make 43% of their shots from the field and 32.2% from beyond the line.

It’s third in the league that they score 89.7 points per game, hitting 49.8% from the field (6th) and 40.8% from long range (2nd). Their shooting is great (77.1% FT), but they aren’t very good at getting rebounds—they rank 150th in the nation in that category.

Tennessee Volunteer Betting Prediction

Second, we have the Tennessee vs Kentucky Betting prediction for the Vols.

Rick Barnes has won more than 800 games in his career. At Texas, he led the team to the Final Four in 2003, but at Tennessee, they have never made it past the Sweet 16. This team should be in the running for the Final Four, not the title.

The new NCAA Net Rankings put them fifth overall and fifth on KenPom. They’ve won seven straight games. The Vols beat South Carolina 66–59 on the road on Wednesday, easy victory as a 6-point favorite. Dalton Knecht made five three-pointers and scored 26 points to take the lead for Tennessee. Zeigler scored 13 points, gave out seven assists, and grabbed five rebounds. The Vols only made 36% of their shots from the field, while the Gamecocks only made 38%.

On msn.com after the game, Knecht said, “We are just going to be ready to go out. It doesn’t matter if we are a one seed or not.” “We are just going to go out and be ready to compete against everybody.”

It’s not a big deal when Kentucky wins the SEC regular season title. If Tennessee wins, it will be the first time since 2008 that they have won the SEC regular season title. One player who has helped them a lot is Knecht, who came from Northern Colorado and was named to the second team of All-Big Sky Conference players last season.

Probably SEC Player of the Year this year, and the NBA could pick him in the lottery. The 6’6″ wing shoots 40.6% from long range, 47.3% overall, and grabs 4.8 boards per game. Jonas Aidoo, a forward (6-11, 241), scores 12.2 points, grabs 7.6 boards, and blocks 1.8 shots.

The Vols’ defense is very strong; their opponents can only shoot 38.3% (2nd) and 30.6% from long range (25th). They score 80.2 points per game on offense, making 45.1% of their shots and 34.7% of their long-range shots. At 52.6%, Tennessee has the 60th highest rebound rate.

Tennessee vs Kentucky Betting Pick

The Vols are having a great season, but the Wildcats are not dead. They have two great rookies in Sheppard and Dillingham. In their first game together, they scored 35 points. Their game is much better now than it was when they lost on February 3.

Also, they’re playing better away from home. On February 27, they beat Mississippi State by two points, and they beat Auburn by 11. That’s a very good fact: they beat the Vols by 11 points when they were on the road last season. The Vols are more motivated than Kentucky because they already have the top seed in the SEC Tournament.
