Kentucky vs North Florida 11/26/2021 College Basketball Picks, Predictions, Odds

The North Florida Ospreys and the Kentucky Wildcats meet in college basketball action from Rupp Arena on Friday night.

The North Florida Ospreys come into this game looking to build on a 103-43 win over subdivision Webber last time out. Carter Hendricksen leads the Ospreys in scoring and rebounding with 13.8 PPG along with 4 RPG while Jose Placer has 10 PPG with 3.2 APG as the only other double-digit scorer for North Florida so far this season. As a team, North Florida is averaging 66.7 PPG on 42% shooting from the field, 38.3% from three and 75.3% from the foul line while allowing 71.8 PPG on 43.9% shooting from the field and 33.7% from three this season.

The Kentucky Wildcats come into this game with a record of 4-1 on the year after an 86-61 win over Albany last time out. TyTy Washington Jr. leads Kentucky in scoring with 15 PPG with 5 RPG as well as 3.4 APG while Keion Brooks Jr. has 14.2 PPG along with 5.4 RPG and Oscar Tshiebwe has 13.4 PPG with a team-high 16 RPG to lead Kentucky on the glass, averaging a big double-double per game. Sahvir Wheeler has 11.5 PPG with a team-high 8.2 APG and Kellan Grady has 10 PPG to make up the group of double-digit scorers for Kentucky so far this season. As a team, Kentucky is averaging 82.8 PPG on 49.7% shooting from the field, 37.8% from three and 83.3% from the foul line while allowing 62.8 PPG on 38.8% shooting from the field and 28.4% from three this season.

North Florida is 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games following a win while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 road games against a team with a winning home record. Kentucky is 7-18-2 ATS in their last 27 games overall and 4-11 ATS in their last 15 home games while the over is 8-1-1 in their last 10 games following an ATS loss.

I will give credit to North Florida for stepping up to play some of the bigger boys, but they’ve yet to really be able to keep pace with the big boys. Kentucky has had their ups and downs, but it’s a matter of time before the cohesion goes into full effect and it has to start somewhere. The Wildcats are just the better team from top to bottom, so give me the Wildcats laying the big number here.
