It’s SEC vs. Big 12 Saturday — a January tradition — and Kentucky vs. Texas Tech may be the best of the bunch.

The Wildcats head into Lubbock with a young group that’s much improved after some early season woes, while the Red Raiders counter with a young team of their own that’s stellar defensively.

Who has the edge in this game? Let’s dive in.

How Odds Moved for Kentucky-Texas Tech

Betting action has been split on this game, with Kentucky getting 56% of the bets and 49% of the money as of Saturday morning. The line hasn’t moved much, opening at Texas Tech -4 across the market and staying there, though DraftKings did open +4.5 overnight. — Steve Petrella

When Kentucky Has the Ball

The Wildcats will need to take advantage of the opportunities beyond the arc against Texas Tech, which just allowed TCU to shoot 8 of 20 (40%) in a 65-44 home win.

Kentucky only ranks 245th in 3-point shooting this year at 31.6%, but have been much improved in conference play. They rank second-best in SEC play with a 37% team average from deep. Both Nate Sestina (39.4%) and Immanuel Quickley (39.5%) need to convert from 3P to open the interior offense.

Kentucky will also need to limit turnovers against a Texas Tech team that ranks first in Big 12 play in defensive turnover percentage.
