This will be the first true road game for this group of young Wildcats. It is very winnable but travelling in conference is a “thing”.
LSU has gotten off to a nice start. They are not a real threat in the SEC but they might add more to the depth of the league than expected.
This team is going to be enigmatic this season. After crushing Louisville they nearly lost their SEC opener to Georgia at home.
The talent is there but this team lacks refined offensive players which means it can go long stretches of very bad offensive play.
Speaking of length, they have a ton of it. That makes Kentucky an effective defensive team even if their positioning is not always sound. They challenge shots all over the floor.
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is looking to replicated the performance of Jamal Murray, another Canadian who worked his way down to Lexington.
The Tigers have looked alright so far this season. This win would be a good get but there is no Ben Simmons in this group to lead them there.
Point guard Tremont Waters is having a great freshman season though and perhaps his speed and ability to create can be difference making.
Aaron Epps and Duop Reath are two players with length that will have to play well and stay on the floor. Otherwise they will get pounded on the glass.
Randy Onwuasor was a sought after grad transfer but the 23ppg he scored at Southern Utah has not translated well at LSU.

Free Kentucky Wildcats vs. LSU Tigers NCAAB Prediction:
Kentucky is a short favourite in this one. Shorter than I thought they would be so it could be a buying opportunity.
They have scared me all season though because sometimes it looks like the only offense they have is offensive rebounding.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Kentucky -5
I want to fade the Wildcats here on the road but I think they are ultimately going to wear down the Tigers
