The Kentucky Wildcats will be on the road to take on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish on Saturday, December 11th.
The tip-off is set for 5:15 from Purcell Pavilion at the Joyce Center.
The Wildcats started off as a 2.5 point favorite and that number is now up to 4.5. The total has gone from 146 to 145.
As is often the case, Kentucky is playing some good basketball. They are currently ranked number 10 in the nation and I would not be surprised to see them get to an even better spot as the year goes on.
The Wildcats beat the Southern Jaguars on Tuesday by a score of 76-64. Sure, they would have liked to win by more than 12, but a win is a win.
Although they have a very good record, they have not faced anybody all that great besides their loss to Duke. They will get a chance to play another ACC team when they square off against Notre Dame. If they are on their game, they should be able to knock off the Irish.
Starting on Saturday, the level of competition is going to be more intense than it was at the beginning of the year. That will be the case even more so when they play a very tough SEC schedule.
Notre Dame Fighting Irish
Notre Dame has not exactly started off the year the way they wanted. There is still a long season ahead of them, but things do not look great at the moment.
At the moment, the Irish have a record of 3-4. Simply put, that is not going to get it done when you play in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
This team lost to the BC Eagles last Friday by a score of 73-57. Things will not get any easier when they host a very talented and well-coached Kentucky team.
If this team plays at all like they did to the Eagles when they go against the Wildcats, they will get blown out of the gym.
CBB Betting Trends:
- Kentucky is 7-0 SU in their last 7 games.
- Kentucky is 5-13-1 ATS in their last 19 games.

Free Kentucky Wildcats vs. Notre Dame Fighting Irish NCAAB Summary:
Even though they are on the road, I look for Kentucky to have their way in this ball game.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Kentucky ATS
Kentucky cannot fool around in a game like this. They are the better team and they need to show it.
I just have a hard time seeing the Irish keep up with the Wildcats on either side of the ball. It is going to be a big challenge for them and I do not think they are ready for it.
If the Wildcats want to be considered a legit team, they should be able to cover a relatively small spread against a team that is not a great team. After the early minutes, there is no excuse for them to make this a close game.
Give me the Wildcats laying the 4.5 points on the road here.
