Kentucky and Michigan are taking their talents across the pond for a Sunday afternoon feature on ABC. The Wildcats are the betting favorite for the first ever college basketball game played at O2 Arena in London.

Kentucky opens as an 8.5-point favorite over Michigan with a total of 143.5. It mirrors KenPom’s projections that call for a 76-67 UK victory. The Wildcats have not covered a spread away from Rupp Arena this season. The over has hit in three straight Kentucky basketball games. Michigan is 3-4 ATS this season, with the over hitting in four of their seven contests.

The Wildcats and the Wolverines are both 5-2 with each loss by an average of 12.5 and 13.5 points, respectively. Michigan is the only squad with a Power Five win, taking Pitt to task in a 31-point win. Which team will rise to the occasion? We’ll find out Saturday at 1:00 pm EST on ABC.

Go Cats. Beat the Wolverines.
