Matchup Stats | ATS Insider Preview

At least they’ll try to make the trip, as weather concerns have put a cloud over the game. LSU’s official announcement on whether or not this game will even be played is scheduled for 10:00 am CT on Tuesday, though it is expected that they will hit the court.

The Wildcats did fly to Baton Rouge on Monday afternoon which is a great boon to the game’s status. As if the weather conditions won’t make it tough enough on Kentucky who will have to make the trip out to Baton Rouge, the team is also just 1-2 in true road games this season, while LSU is 8-2 at home.

In fact, all of Kentucky’s losses on the season have come away from Rupp Arena. The Wildcats have won three in a row in their own building since their last setback at Arkansas. Now Kentucky embarks on a swing that sees them play four of their next five games on the road.
Freshman forward Julius Randle showed off all his talents in the team’s last win against Georgia, a 79-54 rout. Randle racked up 14 points, including a three-pointer, nine rebounds, and three assists, demonstrating his ability to pass out of double teams. He was named the SEC freshman of the week on Monday after averaging 13.5 points and 10.0 rebounds last week.

LSU has a big-man that causes trouble for opponents as well, as Johnny O’Bryant III is averaging 14.6 points per game and 7.3 rebounds per game to lead the team in both categories, including 18.7 points per game over his last three games. O’Bryant will be facing his toughest test yet on Tuesday when he is scheduled to oppose Kentucky sophomore Willie Cauley-Stein who is coming off a performance against Georgia in which he recorded six blocks and six steals. The matchup between Cauley-Stein and O’Bryant will go a long way in deciding what kind of chance LSU has of pulling off the upset.

Kentucky’s road struggles this season are well documented, but there’s no arguing that they are simply playing at another level than LSU right now. The three home wins should have done enough to fix what ailed the Wildcats, and now it’s time to get things going on the road, and they should do that on Tuesday as they are 2-0 under head coach John Calipari in Baton Rouge.

The Wildcats are 6-1 ATS in their last seven trips to Baton Rouge, and the road team is 9-2 ATS in the last 11 meetings between these teams.

The play: Kentucky -3
