The Kentucky Wildcats football team is gearing up for their senior day, which will also be their last home game of the season. Taking on No. 8 Alabama, the Wildcats are facing a tough opponent. Oddsmakers are not optimistic about the Wildcats’ chances, with Alabama being favored by 11 points. The game total is set at 47 points, with Kentucky’s point total at 16.5 and Alabama’s at 28.5. Despite being the underdogs, Kentucky has shown promise with a 4-1 record against the spread in their last five games versus the SEC West.
Betting trends also reveal that the total has gone over in five of Kentucky’s last six games, while the total has gone over in four of Alabama’s last five games. Kentucky will need to bring their A-game to stand a chance against Alabama, who has a strong record of 14-3 in their last 17 road games.
Expert picks and predictions lean heavily in favor of Alabama, with a final score projection of 31-16. After suffering a blowout loss to Georgia earlier in the season, it will be an uphill battle for the Wildcats to secure a win against Alabama. However, there is still hope for a competitive game, as Kentucky has shown strength at home, with a 5-2 record straight up in their last seven home games.
Ultimately, the odds are against Kentucky, but senior day could provide the motivation they need to put up a strong fight. As the final home game for many Wildcats, they will undoubtedly be looking to make a statement. Regardless of the outcome, Saturday’s game is sure to be an emotional and exciting event for the team and their fans.
