Team Statistical Comparison

Ole Miss scores an average of 68.6 points per game while allowing opposing teams to score an average of 68.0 points per contest. Kentucky scores an average of 80.6 points per game while allowing opposing teams to score an average of 65.3 points per contest.

Here’s another important SEC basketball contest. Kentucky hosting an Ole Miss team that has struggled most of the season but can shock the world with a win on Senior Night in Lexington. Despite the low RPI opponent, this game a huge for the Wildcats who, along with Tennessee and Arkansas, still have a chance to win the SEC regular-season title. For that to happen, Kentucky needs to win out the regular season and then have Auburn somehow lose its two final games (@ MSU and USC). There is a chance that there could be a log jam at the very top of the SEC at the end of the regular season. If you are a sports betting enthusiast this game could be an intriguing matchup.
