Kentucky football is on fire and told to do it as LSU is in Lexington on Saturday for a huge Southeastern Conference game with the Wildcats looking to go 6-0. Here are the odds, injuries, how to look and a prediction for the Wildcats and Tigers.
The Wildcats (5-0, 3-0) have their sights set up 6-0 for only the fifth time in school history, the last being in 1950 after scoring an incredible 20-13 victory over the Florida then ranked # 10. Last Saturday in an atmosphere we haven’t seen at Kroger Field / Commonwealth Stadium for a long time.
Mark Stoops has his troops delighted, confident but grounded in the reality of the scale of the LSU battle.
Big Blue Nation meanwhile is raving about this team.
Kentucky fans rocked the stadium and the Bluegrass as the clock expired in Florida, triggering a rush scene on the field.
It could be a rehearsal and force athletic director Mitch Barnhart to pull out his checkbook and cough up an additional $ 250,000 at the SEC if fans rush to the field.
Everyone expects this game to be a bite until the end. This has been customary for the UK all season long and cats are now used to it. Is LSU’s story just a caged Tiger ready to pounce or is that the end for trainer Ed Orgeron?
Kentucky Football Injury Report vs. Florida
Kentucky had avoided the injury virus all season, but last week against Florida nose guard Marquan McCall and wide receiver Josh Ali each suffered injuries. Ali is expected to miss today’s and next week’s games. McCall will more than likely be in 5-6 games.
As for LSU, they are a team that are pretty well fucked up and two key players also suffered injuries last week against Auburn in his high school. All-American corner kick Derek Stingley Jr. and Major Burns will both miss today’s game. The Tigers also have a bunch on the questionable roster for today’s game.
Kentucky football vs LSU Week 6 betting odds and picks
WynnBET’s Week 6 odds make Kentucky football a 2.0 point favorite on Saturday night, which has been fairly stable all week, hitting 3 and settling at current odds. The game also has an over / under of 51 points. The Moneyline has Kentucky minus -135, while the Tigers are plus +115.
Kentucky haven’t had much success over the years when they met LSU as the Tigers lead the series 40-16-1 overall, but 11 of the losses have come at Lexington.
They don’t meet as often as they used to when the divisions split up and LSU went to SEC West and Kentucky to the East. The last time was in 2014 at Baton Rouge, where the Tigers won 41-3. This is the only clash Stoops has with the Tigers.
LSU has won six of the last seven meetings dating back to 2000, but the last time they came to the Bluegrass in 2007 they were No.1 and three overtime later Kentucky took a 43-37 victory.
Kentucky is much better than in the past. These teams would never have been favored in games like this and important underdogs. The talk would be how to get out of the game without significant injuries and not be embarrassed.
These days, confidence is overflowing as well as depth. Credit to Stoops for hoping today is another step towards full respect that he built Kentucky as a suitor, not a suitor. There are specific reasons Kentucky can beat LSU.
i will stick to my prediction and say that Kentucky defeats LSU 28-24.
