The Kentucky Wildcats have largely lived up to their high billing so far this season standing 9-1 overall with their one defeat coming at home against an elite UCLA squad. Kentucky is coming off another dominant performance getting past Hofstra on a neutral site by a final of 96-73. Kentucky reloaded yet again this season bringing in another elite recruiting class to restock their roster. The Wildcats have feasted on some weaker teams this season as they’ve leaned on their offense which ranks 3rd in the nation in scoring average compared to 127th in total defense. Malik Monk has made an instant impact leading the team averaging 19.4 points per game.

North Carolina hasn’t won in the prettiest fashion in a number of their games this season, but the Tar Heels have been taking care of business standing 10-1 overall with their one defeat coming against Indiana on the road. UNC brings back a lot of talent this year from last season’s Final Four group, but the Tar Heels have had consistency issues without Joel Berry on the court recently. In their last outing UNC had a tough time getting past Tennessee at home picking up the win in the end by a final of 73-71. North Carolina brings an up-tempo attack ranking 11th in the nation in scoring and 81st in total defense. Veteran forward Justin Jackson leads the team averaging 15.5 points per game.

This should be a fun matchup to watch between two of the best teams in the nation. North Carolina brings back a bit more experience and this is a great chance for the Tar Heels to pick up an elite resume win in the nonconference on a neutral site. We like for the Tar Heels to keep things competitive as they go on to cover the spread on the neutral site.

    Las Vegas the venue and a "pick-em" game -- Kentucky for me -- speed <?> an issue in this game and ACC not known for speed -- Kentucky in a very close one -- Wildcats by 5
