Two of the top teams in the SEC will meet here on Friday night in Auburn. As the Kentucky Wildcats hit the road to take on the Auburn Tigers. Both of these teams are enjoying winning seasons at the moment and both of them will look to strengthen their tournament resume with a solid performance here on Saturday evening. This is a game that will have plenty of implications on their conference tournament positioning and the regular season standings. This game can also have a massive impact on the bubble for the NCAA tournament.

Although by their standards, Kentucky is having a down year. They have still put together a respectable season coming into this game on Saturday night. They have an opportunity to pick up a massive victory on the road against a top. Ranked Auburn team with a quality performance here in this one. As the Kentucky Wildcats will look to improve their NCAA tournaments, standing, heading into the back half of the regular season and grabbing a win in this game would go a long way in helping them accomplish that goal. 

Kentucky comes into this game with 17 victories with their first 24 games of the regular season and they will look to make it 18 out of 25 with a huge résumé building victory here on Saturday night on the road. Kentucky comes into this game after picking up a respectable victory against Mississippi in their previous contest and they will look for a second consecutive victory here on Saturday night. This feels like a must win game for Kentucky if they want to keep their hopes alive of potentially winning an SEC, regular season championship and improve their standing going into the conference tournament as well.

Auburn has put together an incredible season and they are looking to stay in the running for a number one seed in the NCAA tournament. Heading into the final part of the year they have the potential to do exactly that as long as they finish the regular season on a strong note. A victory in this game on Saturday night at home against Kentucky would help them accomplish that as they like to continue racking up victories and potentially winning the SEC regular season conference championship in the process. 

Auburn has already crossed the 20 win marker this season by winning 20 out of 25 games on the year and they will look to make it 21 out of 26 for another respectable performance here on Saturday at home. They have been a very tough team to beat at home this season, and they will look to keep that narrative true with another solid performance against one of the greatest programs in the history of college basketball here in this one. They are coming off of a 40 point victory against South Carolina and their last game and they will look to follow up with another huge victory here in this one against Kentucky. They have been one of the hottest teams in college basketball as of late winning four out of their last five. 

Betting trends to consider in this matchup:

- Auburn is 13-0 at home 

- Auburn is 3-1 against ranked teams 

- Auburn is 16-3 after a win

I expect this to be a close, and competitive contest throughout the majority of the game, but in the end, I do look for the Auburn Tigers to pick up the victory. I look for Auburn to pull away late in this game and cover the spread in the process here on Saturday night at home against Kentucky as well. As Auburn has just been one of the best teams in college basketball this season in Kentucky is having a bit of a down year by their own standards and I expect that to continue throughout this game on Saturday night.
