The Kentucky Wildcats (18-7, 8-4 SEC) head to Baton Rouge on Wednesday night to take on the LSU Tigers (13-2, 5-7 SEC) in a crucial SEC showdown. This battle on ESPN at 9 PM ET holds significant implications for both teams as they fight to jockey for position in the conference standings.

Road Success

Kentucky is riding high after a statement win over #13 Auburn, proving their road capabilities (5-2). Conversely, LSU is feeling confident after their own upset over South Carolina. This will be the only regular season meeting between these teams this year.

Statistical Showdown

Kentucky boasts a high-powered offense (#3 in points per game) led by Antonio Reeves (19.5 PPG). While Kentucky excels in shooting efficiency and ball distribution, LSU will need to limit turnovers and capitalize on their chances.

The X-Factors

Jalen Cook (15.6 PPG) missed the last game due to a lower-leg injury, and it is undetermined if he will face Kentucky on Wednesday. He leads the Tigers in scoring.

Our Pick

With Kentucky favored by -5 our model sees no edge in the side. However it does predict a high-scoring affair with Kentucky edging out LSU 94-89. With 72% of Kentucky’s games going over the total this year, betting the over (currently set at 164) looks like the way to go.
