After Kentucky took a 20-point beating a the hands of Alabama, few folks in the BBN believe the Wildcats will bounce back at Auburn. The Las Vegas oddsmakers aren’t so pessimistic.
Auburn opened as one-point favorites over the Wildcats. That line quickly moved to the other side, making Kentucky a one-point favorite over the Tigers. The total is now 142.5.
The slim margin is consistent with sites that predict the outcomes of college basketball games. KenPom and Sagarin each believe it will be a one-point game, while ESPN’s BPI gives UK a narrow edge over Auburn with a 50.7% chance to win.
If trends are any indication of how tomorrow’s game will play out, Auburn has covered the spread just once in their last six games. Kentucky is 2-2 ATS in SEC play, with the over hitting in three out of four games.

I'm surprised, I'd be more apt to pick AU as a 10 point favorite myself!
