It has been a while since Kentucky (26-5, 15-15 ATS) has not been favored to cut down the nets, in this tourney. The Wildcats have all the components to win this again, but as we have seen, they do have flaws which could be exploited.

 Georgia vs. Kentucky

If the Wildcats are forced into half court game, they are not nearly as effective when they can push the ball up the court and generate easy shots. This is why coach John Calipari will be harping at his guys to keep pushing the ball and try and take Georgia's legs away early, having played in tense game with Tennessee yesterday afternoon. The 'Cats have faced the Bulldogs twice this season, but failed to cover the spread either time and they are only 6-8 ATS outside of Lexington.

Georgia's defense and rebounding saved them again the Vols in 59-57 squeaker as one-point favorite. The Bulldogs (19-13, 15-13 ATS) held Tennessee to 32.8 percent from the field and out-rebounded them by 10. That spread winner lifted the Dawgs to 12-3 ATS away from Athens. To upset Kentucky or at the very least be the right choice for college basketball picks, coach Mark Fox's team has to keep this matchup in the 140's for total. Anything above this negates Georgia's chance to win, though they could cover the number again. Strong defense and dribble drives for buckets and free throws is the Bulldogs only chance. Sorry Georgia, not enough today.
