Kentucky Wildcats vs LSU Tigers Sports Betting Odds and Free NCAA Predictions

Kentucky hits the road for the first time in SEC play Wednesday when the No. 17 Wildcats face LSU in Baton Rouge, La.

Since he starts five freshmen, it's not surprising that Kentucky coach John Calipari has some concerns. But it might not be what one would think.

First conference road trip? No.

Kentucky's continued improvement on this modest two-game win streak? Yes.

Calipari does, however, like the idea of getting his team away from 24,000-seat Rupp Arena, site of a 90-61 rout of Louisville on Dec. 29 and a 66-61 SEC opening victory over Georgia on Dec. 31.

LSU, under first-year coach Will Wade, is 9-3, including 7-1 at the Maravich Assembly Center. The Tigers capped a 3-0 start to their season with a win over Michigan in the Maui Invitational before losses to Notre Dame and Marquette followed. LSU also won at Memphis, but lost to Stephen F. Austin at home.

Over its last four games, LSU is averaging 10.2 made 3-pointers per game, including 13 its last time out at Memphis, while scoring an average of 84.7 points.

Freshman guard Tremont Waters leads LSU at 17.1 points per game and paces the SEC in assists (6.4) and steals (2.6).

Kentucky (11-2) has five players averaging in double figures -- all freshmen. Hamidou Diallo is tops at 14.9 followed by Kevin Knox, 14.5; Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, 11.6; Quade Green, 10.8; and PJ Washington, 10.0.
