Kentucky vs. Miami (FL): Odds, spread, over/under - November 28

The #8 Miami Hurricanes travel to Rupp Arena to play the #12 Kentucky Wildcats. This is a chance for Jim Larrañaga and his Canes basketball team to showcase their program after the 2023 Final Four run.

Both teams are highly talented and it’s expected to be an up-and-down-the-court game, but there are injury concerns for the Wildcats (see below).

Injury News: Kentucky big man Aaron Bradshaw is still battling a foot injury. That’s unfortunate for UK as it would possess a definitive size advantage if Bradshaw were to be 100% healthy. Worse, fellow 7-foot post player Ugonna Onyenso is also healing from an ankle sprain.

Betting Odds: Miami is favored by Kentucky -5.5 at the SI Sports Book. At -118, the over/under is 163.5. Miami +200 and Kentucky -275 are the money lines.

Important Matchup: Miami point guard Bensley  Joseph averages 11.6 points and 4.2 assists per game while also ranking among the best defensive players in the country.

It’s a terrific one-on-one matchup against D.J. Wagner of Kentucky, who averages 14.2 points and 3.7 assists per game. On Friday, Nov. 24, UK defeated Marshall with 118 points, even without the two big men. Wagner led the way with 28 points.

Look for Joseph to score double digits tonight, but his most important task is slowing down Wagner and the explosive Kentucky fastbreak.
