Kentucky Wildcats at Vanderbilt Commodores Prediction

In their last three outings, Kentucky has been given away huge allotments of points to the competition and they have put the wood to teams like Ole Miss, Texas A&M and most recently Arkansas. However, Vanderbilt owns some intangibles in this affair worth taking in to consideration. The Commodores while they own an 8-7 record this year, are 6-1 on their own court. The Commodores also regale in the fact that they are the owners of the most recent win in this series. Vanderbilt without question recalls this game and uses it as a point of reference and motivation. When there is a strong potential for many to be overlooking them, this allows them to play the role of a sleeper impeccably. In Nashville this year, Vanderbilt has defeated Chattanooga they went muzzle-to-muzzle with Minnesota away from home. Additionally, the Dores played a stronger schedule on paper than Kentucky. With all these variables taken in to consideration, Kentucky is prone for a let-down performance given the public propensity matched with recent results. The Commodores are coming in on a low note as they lost on the road at Bama while Kentucky has smoked everyone they have come across since the Louisville loss. The Commodores can once again come in off the radar while having home court advantage and possibly a mental edge even if they are unranked with a far less impressive record. Vandy owns a stronger defense and are a better free-throw shooting team compared to Big Blue which cultivates the possibility for this squad to be a live dog yet again on their own court again a likely overvalued Kentucky.
