Kentucky vs. Chattanooga odds, predictions:After an offensive showcase against the Missouri Tigers last weekend, your Kentucky Wildcats will have what should be an easier matchup with the Chattanooga Mocs on Saturday.
Kentucky is coming into the game as heavy favorites at home and now presents an offense difficult for even Southeastern Conference teams to keep up with. This weekend will allow the Kentucky defense an excellent chance to generate a pass rush and build momentum as they prepare for a heavy stretch of SEC play over the next month and a half.
Kentucky is currently a 31-point favorite over Chattanooga with the over/under set at a total of 45. ESPN’s Football Power Index is calculating a 98.6% chance of victory for the Wildcats. Kentucky covered the spread in each of its first two games this season.
As a competitive football team in the SEC you want to enter each football game knowing the opponent is likely going to give you their best shot. While that is surely the case for Saturday, it’s still incredibly doubtful that Kentucky has much trouble with Chattanooga. The Wildcats are simply overpowered on both sides of the ball and especially in the trenches. Look for this matchup to get out of hand quickly.
Final Score: Kentucky 42, Chattanooga 6
