Kentucky Looking For Seventh Consecutive Win Vs Georgia

The Kentucky Wildcats are coming off a week they would rather forget, as they have lost their past two games to Tennessee and Kansas. Luckily for the Wildcats, they face a Georgia Bulldogs team that they have dominated with wins in each of the past six meetings between the two programs.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in 10 of Kentucky's last 13 games against the SEC.
  • Georgia is 1-4 SU in its last 5 games after a win.
  • The visiting team is 1-5 SU and ATS in the last 6 games between Kentucky and Georgia.

To right the ship, Kentucky needs to work on recent turnover problems. The Wildcats have lost the turnover battle in each of their past three games while tallying more turnovers than assists in that span. These struggles have not affected Malik Monk's scoring, with the freshman averaging 23.3 points while shooting 49.1 percent from the floor in the past three games.

Despite posting a 4-4 SU record in its past eight, Georgia has not been an easy out with three of those losses coming by six points or less. Georgia heavily relies on the duo of Yante Maten and JJ Frazier on the offensive end, as they are the only two players on the team to average double-digit points per game.
