There is nothing quite like having games that still mean something taking place on the final day of the regular season. NCAA basketball is one of the best sports to pay attention to if you are a fan of final day drama, as there is something going on in arenas all over the country. Teams on the bubble are fighting to play their way into the tournament, while others are doing all that they can to land on top of their conference at the end of the regular season. One team that is involved in just such a fight are the Kentucky Wildcats, as they are going into the final game locked in a tie with the Texas A&M Aggies at the top of the SEC.

Why bet on LSU Tigers

The Tigers (18-12, 11-6) may very well have peaked since taking out the Kentucky Wildcats back at the start of the year. Since that huge win, they have gone just 9-7, and haven’t really been able to hit the heights that they reached in that win. All of that said, it was a total demolition job they performed on the Wildcats last time out, running away to an 85-67 win. That win did come on home court, though, and the Tigers have definitely not been as good on the road. They have lost their last 3 games away from home, and have managed only 1 other win against a ranked opponent since their win versus the Wildcats. They are on a modest 3-game win streak coming into this one, and are not a team that should be overlooked. LSU are averaging 80.1 PPG, and are giving up 76.8 PPG.

Why bet on Kentucky Wildcats

When the Texas A&M Aggies went on their collapse last month, it was assumed that the Kentucky Wildcats (22-8, 12-5) would simply swoop in and steal the SEC crown, but it hasn’t gone as smoothly as we all imagined it would. Losses to Texas A&M, in an OT classic, and Vanderbilt in the last couple of weeks has meant that the regular season SEC championship will not be decided until the final game of the season. Would we really want it any other way? Kentucky are an absolute beast on hoe court, and have not lost a game there all season. With the chance to win the SEC regular season title, do you really see them having that perfect home record broken in the final game? The Wildcats are averaging 78.5 PPG, and are giving up 67.6 PPG.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

The conclusion to the SEC regular season has been made all the more exciting by the fact that the teams in with a shout of winning it have tough games to play. I think the Aggies will slip up against Vandy, and I like Kentucky to win at home, stealing the title on the final day of the regular season. LSU Tigers 72 Kentucky Wildcats 79
