For the first time in a number of years, the city of Bloomington is going to be flying high for a college basketball betting battle. The undefeated Indiana Hoosiers are going to face their biggest test in years when the No. 1 team in the country, the Kentucky Wildcats come to town.

College Basketball Matchup: Kentucky Wildcats @ Indiana Hoosiers
Date: Saturday, December 10th, 5:15 ET
Location: Assembly Hall, Bloomington, IN
College Basketball TV Schedule: ESPN, ESPN3.com

The Hoosiers haven’t won a game in this series since 2007, and they really haven’t even remotely competed against the Wildcats in that stretch either. That being said, this is the first time that the team has a gripe to be in the Top 25 in quite some time, and a win in this one to move the team to 9-0 would surely get the job done. Kentucky meanwhile, is trying to hold on to the top spot in the nation, and this game, which historically hasn’t really done a heck of a lot for its RPI, is definitely going to make a huge impact this time around, as the Hoosiers are legitimately an NCAA Tournament team this year.

The big question is whether the likes of Christian Watford, Verdell Jones III, and Cody Zeller are going to have the wits to match with the incredibly talented Wildcats. This is a particularly big test for Zeller, who knows that he has to lead this team in spite of the fact that he is only just a freshman playing in his ninth collegiate game. He and the Hoosiers are going to be a huge boost from the Assembly Hall faithful, and even though this is the first true road test of the year from the Wildcats, we think that they will find a way to get out of Bloomington with a victory by a relatively comfortable margin even though this game could be close for the full 40 minutes.
