In SEC action today are the Kentucky Wildcats and the LSU Tigers, two of the top 25 teams in the nation this season. No.10 Kentucky are looking for their fifth straight win since the start of February while No. 25 LSU are slipping following their third loss in four games. The Wildcats are first in the conference standings with a 10-2 record and 20-5 overall while the Tigers are tied for second with a record of 9-3 and an overall record 18-7. 

The Kentucky Wildcats are rolling as the season dwindles down before the party stars in March. Kentucky are looking for their fifth win in a row and they have won eight out of their last ten games. During this recent stretch, the Wildcats had wins over the Mississippi State Bulldgos, the Tennessee Volunteers, the Vanderbilt Commodores and the Ole Miss Rebels. In the five-point 67-62 win over the Miss Rebel, G Immanuel Quickley led the way with 17 points, three rebounds and two assists.

With a 5-2 away record this season, the Wildcats are one of the best road teams in the nation. They also do not miss a beat on the road, averaging 74.0 points and 37.8 rebounds per game. They are shooting 45.6% from the field, 38.9% from the three-point area and 76.4% from the free-throw line. Kentucky have also won seven of the past ten games against LSU. They are 11-13-1 ATS this season and 8-1 SU in their last nine games.

On the other hand, LSU are coming off an 88-82 defeat at the hands of the Alabama Crimson Tide last Saturday. The Tigers were down big early in the first half and it looked like they were going to get blown up. They fought their way back in the second half but Alabama was able to hold on for the win.  G Skylar Mays had 24 points and nine rebounds while F Trendon Watford added 18 points. F Emmitt Williams put up double-double with 13 points and 10 boards. If LSU want to get back to their winning ways, they have to play better defensively.

At home this season, LSU are an amazing 13-1 with averages of 79.7 points and 39.5 rebounds. They are also shooting just 48.8% from the field, 27.8% from the three-point area and 76.0% from the charity stripe. The Tigers were one of the best teams in the country but they have slipped after losing three of their last four games. LSU are also 1-4 ATS in their last five games and 11-3 SU in their last 14 games.
