Free Texas A&M Aggies vs. Kentucky Wildcats NCAAB Prediction:
The Wildcats just have too many options with the ball on offense for A&M to keep up with. You can only double team so many people with five players on the floor.
And even if Texas A&M does manage to some how slow the Cats offense down a bit, Kentucky is too strong on defense for the Aggies to do enough to build a solid lead. I like the Wildcats minus the points in this one.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Kentucky -14.5
The Sooners long range shooters are too much to handle, as they win and move on to the Elite 8.
