Valparaiso is a very strong team this season, but the Wildcat’s are flat out going to be on a mission after taking a loss on their home floor. Not only is Kentucky much quicker then Valparaiso at every position they have much more depth.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Kentucky -19
It will be a long trip home going north on I-65 for the Crusaders after this one. I look for this game to get out of hand while it is still in the first half. Take the Cats and eat the points in this one.
