The argument could be made as to whether the Wildcats really are or are not in the NCAA Tournament at the moment. We tend to think that the 13-point loss at the Arkansas Razorbacks was further proof that this isn’t a tourney team without F Nerlens Noel in the lineup. The consensus to get into the dance seems to be that the Cats need to either beat the Florida Gators at home on Saturday or take down both Georgia and at least one, maybe two games in the SEC Tournament. This is a tough one for a team that is 0-3 SU and ATS on the road without Noel in the fold though, and that’s a bad sign going into Athens for the final legitimate road game of the year. The Dawgs have quietly been stingy, and they have covers in nine of their last 10 games dating back to a home win against the Auburn Tigers on January 30th. Though this isn’t a team that is going to be in the postseason in all likelihood, we still think that UGA is going to be out for blood against a team that it would love nothing more than to trounce. This is the one and only meeting of the year for the Cats and the Dawgs, and this is going to be one for the pups to shine on their home court.
Kentucky vs. Georgia Pick: Georgia Bulldogs +3
Kentucky vs. Georgia Prediction: Georgia 70 – Kentucky 66
