Bettors Look For Kentucky To Continue ATS Tear

Kentucky has faced little opposition so far this season with no opponent managing to keep within 20 points of the Wildcats. With Kentucky easily routing opponents, it should come as no shock that the Wildcats have gone 5-1 ATS through their first six games. This is a trend that continues from last season, as Kentucky has covered in 11 of its past 13 games. UK will be a huge favorite once again taking on the Arizona State Sun Devils on Monday.

Shark Bites
  • Arizona State is 2-8 SU in its last 10 games against teams with winning records.
  • The total has gone OVER in 5 of Arizona State's last 7 games.
  • The total has gone OVER in 4 of Kentucky's last 5 games as a favorite of 16.0 or more.

Kentucky’s sixth-ranked offense in the country has been blowing out opponents, as the Wildcats have an average scoring margin of plus-28 points through their first six games. Freshmen have been a big reason for Kentucky’s early dominance, especially with Isaiah Briscoe missing the past two outings with a lower back bruise. Malik Monk and De’Aaron Fox have combined to average 40.5 points while shooting 55.5 percent from the floor without Briscoe in the lineup.

Arizona State has heavily relied on its offense, but the Sun Devils have struggled when their shot isn’t there, averaging 97.8 points in victories compared to 61.5 in losses. Arizona State has a trio of players averaging over 16.2 points and 31 minutes per game, with junior guard Tra Holder pacing the team with 18.0 ppg.
