I thought I was making a smart play on Saturday when I took the Razorbacks getting points at home against the Kentucky Wildcats, Jodie Meeks' 45 points later, I was a loser and wondering what I was thinking in the first place. On that very same day, I took Vandy to cover against Tennessee getting double-digit points; they didn't even get a whiff of a cover.

Kentucky is 7-3 so far this year in SEC play, while the Commodores are 4-6 within the conference. The Wildcats have managed to go 4-3 on the road overall so far this year, and they desperately need this one to stay in first in the SEC East, while Vandy is going to need to string some wins together to be considered for the NCAA tourney. It's up in the air exactly how many SEC teams will even make it.
