Kentucky Wildcats vs Alabama Crimson Tide Predictions 1/7/2023


Alabama has a 7-6-1 record against the spread, while their matches have an 8-6 over/under record. According to KenPom, the Crimson Tide is ranked sixth in the country.


In spite of playing the fifth-toughest schedule in the nation, they are 12th in modified defensive efficiency and 20th in adjusted offensive efficiency.


With victories over North Carolina, Houston, Memphis, San Diego State, Michigan State, and Mississippi State, the Crimson Tides have a very strong resume. They were defeated by Gonzaga and UConn.


The Tide is currently 2-0 in conference play after defeating Mississippi on Tuesday. In the victory, Mark Sears scored 16 points, while Brandon Miller, a freshman, scored 17 points overall to lead the squad.


Miller is producing 19.1 points per game, 8.6 rebounds, and 44.1% of his three-point attempts this season. Mark Sears, a transfer from Ohio who averages 14.6 points per game and shoots 42.5% from three, is in second place.


In their SEC debut on Wednesday, Alabama defeated Mississippi State 78-67 despite being a two-point favorite. Miller scored 19 points and grabbed 11 rebounds, while Sears finished with 20 points to take the lead.


  • The Alabama Crimson Tide is 7-1 SU in their last 8 matches. 
  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Alabama’s last 6 with the Kentucky Wildcats. 
  • The Crimson Tide is 7-0 SU in their last 7 matches at home.

Kentucky Wildcats vs #7 Alabama Crimson Tide. The NCAAB pick for this game is the #7 Alabama Crimson Tide. This year, Alabama was the superior team and already overcame some significant obstacles.

Despite having four defeats by at least 9 points on its record, Kentucky did not perform as well in the big games despite having a tremendous amount of skill.


Although both teams are very explosive, Alabama defends better and has the advantage at the free-throw line. 


In addition to making more free throws, the Crimson Tide averages 25.4 attempts per game, ranking seventh in the nation, as opposed to Kentucky’s 18.8 (116th).


Alabama is right behind Kentucky in second place with a +9.86 rebounding margin this year, but Kentucky often consistently retains a significant advantage.


However, Kentucky is 0-7-1 ATS in its past eight meetings and 5-16-2 ATS in its last 23 away matches, so I don’t think the oddsmakers have this one quite right. The #7 Alabama Crimson Tide will win to a predicted score of
