2:00 PM EST. They're talking hoops in Tuscaloosa, so you know the Crimson Tide must be on a roll. Alabama pounded LSU 80-55 and Tennessee 78-50 in its last two games, and now the Tide are talking NCAA Tournament for the second time in 12 years, and the first since a one-and-done appearance in 2012. A pair of near 30-point victories, as well as five wins over ranked opponents, will undoubtedly get the market's attention, but moving from the comfortable confines of Coleman Coliseum to the 23,500 seat Rupp Arena for a nationally televised game is a entirely different ball game.
A program like Kentucky doesn't make our board very often, as the Wildcats are often overvalued in the market and overrated on the hardwood. However, there are exceptions to every rule, and John Calipari's crew is trading at its lowest price in quite some time after a 10-point loss at Auburn on Wednesday night. Incredibly, that was the Wildcats fourth straight defeat, which is the longest losing streak they've gone on since Calipari arrived in Lexington. Most programs hit the skids at least once a year, not once a decade. Although all things are not equal, the Wildcats have been favored by double-digits the last six times they hosted Alabama. Today that number is much smaller. We are in the business of buying low and selling high, and for the first time in years, the market perception on these two teams are reversed. Swallow the points.
