One of the most anticipated matchups of the season is almost here: Kentucky vs Kansas in the SEC/Big 12 Challenge at Rupp Arena. Before the BBN invades downtown Lexington, here’s what Vegas thinks of the game and where you can watch and listen to the action.

The Wildcats opened as a 1.5-point underdog against the Jayhawks Saturday night, according to FanDuel. The opening line is not too far off from KenPom, who projects a 71-70 Kentucky victory and gives the Wildcats a 52% chance to win.

Neither team has been great against the spread (ATS) this year, but the Jayhawks have been particularly bad as of late. On the verge of the first four-game losing streak of Bill Self’s career, Kansas has failed to cover in five-straight games. The under has also hit in three of the last four Kansas basketball games. Meanwhile, backers of the blue are riding high as the Cats have covered the spread in four straight wins.
