The two teams with hopes of playing in April will meet on Saturday when Auburn takes on Kentucky.
The Tigers have won 14 straight games as they head into this high-profile competition against the booming Wildcats, who won at Rupp Arena over a Tennessee ranked opponent by 28 last week. Can they keep up with arguably the most complete team in the country?
Here are the odds from WynnBET Sportsbook.
This is set to be a matchup of two of the strongest teams in the country with very little separation between the two.
However, if there is one difference, it is the ability to clean the glass on both sides of the Wildcats. We’ll start attacking as the UK is the second best team in the country in terms of offensive recovery rate, giving 40% second chances available. Oscar Tshiebwe is one of the main reasons why, leading the country in OREB percentage, with 20% of the team’s misses.
Bruce Pearl’s team stands right around the nation in defensive recovery rates and slightly better offensively, but will struggle against Tshiebwe’s physicality and the 12th Kentucky frontline in defense recovery rate. player.
Kentucky is a better attacker, but Auburn has a better defence. This will be a fight with a Final Four feel to it. This looks like a possession game going down the wire, so I’ll lean towards Kentucky with the score.
LEAN: Kentucky +3.5
