Alabama is looking to establish a basketball identity with new coach Avery Johnson. That takes time, especially in the shadow of the nation’s top football program.
Kentucky is on the opposite end of the spectrum in the SEC. They are all about hoops and its shows with the talent flowing through the program and the banners they can display.
The Wildcats are looking to build towards another deep March run. They should take this one at home.
Alabama Crimson Tide
Bama was on a hot streak before losing at home to Mississippi State. They had won 6 of 7 and beat some pretty good teams.
The Tide are not likely to play in the Big Dance this season but they do seems destined for the post season. However, a win at Kentucky would definitely get the committee’s attention.
Alabama does not have a very well known roster but they do feature one of the most improved players in the league in Retin Obasohan, the senior from Antwerp has more than doubled his scoring this season to 17ppg.
When these teams met in Tuscaloosa in January the Tide lost by 16. They looked overwhelmed and that was at home. On the road is going to be really tough.
Alabama is just 5-5 SUATS on the road this season.
The Wildcats are coming off a tough OT road loss against Texas A&M. They could be out of this one mentally or they could be raring to lay down a beating.
Either way this is a talented team that is leading the SEC. It is but just a game though and Alabama only has three fewer conference victories.
More and more I am loving the backcourt of Tyler Ulis and Jamal Murray. They scored 43 points against the Aggies. More than half the team’s total.
When UK beat Alabama in January it was Alex Poythress that did most of the damage. He is questionable for Tuesday but they can win without him.
The Wildcats are always a public team. They are 15-0 at home this season but just 8-7 ATS.
CBB Betting Trends:
- ALA are 11-5-2 ATS in their last 18 Tue. games.
- Over is 5-2-1 in UK last 8 overall.
- Under is 42-20-2 in UK last 64 home games.
Free Alabama Crimson Tide vs. Kentucky Wildcats CBB Prediction:
The key to this game will be the start for Kentucky. If they are sharp they will blow them out of the water again. If they are sluggish off the loss than who knows.
This could definitely be a spot to look at them halftime number for some value.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: OVER the Total
There is no way UK loses this one. Alabama is just too light on talent to do more than scare them.
