Monmouth has had some small conference success in the past so it is kind of a name you know. This season they are expected to be among the contenders in the MAAC.
Kentucky is its usual super talented self. The pieces are still trying to fit together but they are unlikely to lose in this spot. That has only happened once this season.
Monmouth could be a little down coming into this one. They have lost two straight, first in OT to Connecticut and then to Hofstra by a point. These are just kids remember.
For them to have any sort of a chance of being competitive in this one they have to start strong. Kentucky has shown they can be pushed.
Micah Seaborn is the top scorer for the Hawks. He missed a couple of games early but scored 50 points combined in the two losses. 27 against UConn likely needs be built upon for them to have a chance.
After Seaborn it is hard to know where the Hawks will turn. No other player averages double digits in points and they have limited size.
Kentucky may have elite talent but they are not playing like it yet. Sure they have only one loss but that is because their schedule has been very light so far. This team has a lot of room to grow.
Kevin Knox has great length, so much that it creates a lot of easy looks. He leads the team at 16ppg but there is nothing exciting about him right now. Until he starts shooting it more efficiently.
Hamidou Diallo was supposed to explode on the scene because he had already adjusted to campus life. His shooting numbers are also nothing special. He is no Malik Monk.
The Wildcats have plenty of size to overwhelm Monmouth. All season long their best play have been to chuck it up there and offensive rebound.

Free Monmouth Hawks vs. Kentucky Wildcats NCAAB Prediction:
No line currently posted in this one but Kentucky will definitely be the favourite, with the line adjusted for the fact that the game is in NYC not Lexington. Still look for at least double digits.
You can bet it will likely be an anti Wildcat crowd with Monmouth fans sneaking over from Jersey. They will want to back the underdogs if they can give them something to root for.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: No line currently posted.
There will be moments Kentucky will look bad but eventually they will overwhelm the Hawks. That is what Kentucky does.
