Point Spread Pick

Kentucky has owned LSU winning the last 6, but failed to cover the point spread in the last 2 going 4-2 ATS over that stretch. As of late the Wildcats have been on fire losing only one of their last 8. In conference play they’re 6-1 with the one lose being by two points as a small road 1.5–point underdog in Arkansas. It has been as rosy for the Tigers who have lost 4 of their 7 and are 3-3 in SEC action. We could make an argument for the home side here, but all the trends point to a Kentucky win and the line offered is low enough to pull the trigger.
