Kentucky has won three games in a row, including a 79-54 victory over the Georgia Bulldogs as 14-point home favorites last Saturday, while going UNDER the betting total for a second consecutive contest. The Wildcats are a dominating 34-0 SU in the John Calipari era when holding opponents to 55 or fewer points, which is important to consider when making your college basketball betting picks Tuesday night. Kentucky is 3-12-2 ATS in its last 17 road games versus teams with a winning home record.
The Wildcats have made 80.3 percent of their shots from the charity stripe over their last three games, which can’t be ignored when looking over the college basketball lines page. Kentucky is starting to become a dangerous offensive team due to its improving perimeter numbers, as it has knocked down five or more three-point shots in five consecutive affairs. The program has four players averaging in double figures, with freshman forward Julius Randle leading the way at 16.6 points a contest.
LSU had its two-game winning streak snapped last Saturday, as it suffered a 82-80 setback to the Alabama Crimson Tide as two-point road underdogs, while going OVER the betting total for a fourth consecutive contest. The Tigers entered their last affair with two starters averaging double figures, with junior forward Johnny O’Bryant III leading the way at 14.4 points a contest. LSU is 1-6-1 ATS in its last eight games versus teams with a winning percentage of .600 or higher.
The Tigers are 8-2 SU this season when scoring 77 or more points, while they’ve captured all seven affairs when holding opponents to 36.4 percent or lower field goal percentage. LSU is still trying to find out its best rotation of players to put out on the floor throughout games at this point in time, as the coaching staff has sent out 103 different five-player combinations. None of it may matter due to this particular matchup, as the program is 1-6 ATS in its last seven home games in this series.
Sports bettors will likely back the Wildcats due to the Tigers being 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 games versus a team with a winning SU record.
