The Gators and the Wildcats are both incredibly talented teams, and we think that the oddsmakers are going to look too much into the holistic numbers instead of the recent form. The Wildcats have been as hot as could be, rolling off five straight wins, many of which have come by convincing margins. They’re playing well, and they might finally be rounding into the form that we expected to see them take at the outset of the season. Florida meanwhile, has failed to cover three in a row, and we can’t help but wonder if missing F Will Yeguete is part of the reason why. This front line really isn’t all that deep when push comes to shove, and that could be bad news against F Nerlens Noel and company. The Wildcats could really use a signature win like this one to remove all doubt about their place in the NCAA Tournament, and we think that they are at least going to threaten to get it. This is going to be far too many points for the oddsmakers to be giving Florida on the college basketball odds on Tuesday night.
Kentucky vs. Florida Pick: Kentucky Wildcats +9.5
Kentucky vs. Florida Prediction: Florida 72 – Kentucky 70
