NEWSLETTER College Basketball Prediction From Strike Point Sports
Take Kentucky over Vanderbilt (4 p.m., Saturday, January 23)
The Wildcats have disappointed this year relative to their lofty expectations. But at home following a road loss at Auburn last weekend, UK needs a response. Just the same, Vanderbilt has been pretty poor away from its Nashville home-court advantage. The Commodores have lost all four road games this year, while Kentucky have maintained a perfect 10-0 record in Lexington. Even UK’s last home win against Mississippi State over a week ago was an underwhelming result (six-point win), so I expect a renewed sense of interest from this young team that can’t afford many more slip ups if they want to maintain a high seed for the NCAA Tournament.
Go with the home chalk and Kentucky in this one.
