College Basketball Picks: Missouri Tigers @ Kentucky Wildcats
Date: Saturday, February 23rd, 9:00 ET
Location: Rupp Arena, Lexington, KY
Missouri vs. Kentucky Live TV: ESPN
It’s not often that you say a game between a pair of ranked teams in one of the most important of the day, but the chase for the dance in the SEC is hot and heavy right now with a number of teams looking for big wins over the other. Kentucky is one of these teams that may or may not be on the right side of the bubble right now, knowing that it has played horrid basketball without F Nerlens Noel. Noel’s collegiate career is likely over, but the truth of the matter is that the Wildcats should theoretically be talented enough without him to excel. Head Coach John Calipari and the gang just haven’t though, and there is no way to believe that they are going to in this game against Missouri. The Tigers have to be flying high off of that win against the Florida Gators earlier this week, and if they can keep their wits about them going into Rupp Arena, they can come up with a big time road win that would cement a place in the NCAA Tournament. Don’t be all that shocked if that’s what ultimately ends up happening on Saturday night.
Missouri vs. Kentucky Pick: Missouri Tigers +3
Missouri vs. Kentucky Prediction: Missouri 68 – Kentucky 65
