*3 Star Play on Eastern Michigan* The Eastern Michigan Eagles play a ton of close games. Eastern Michigan doesn't win by much, and they don't lose by much. Eastern Michigan has been a covering machine in non-conference games as well. The Eagles are 17-4 ATS in their last 21 non-conference games. They are 21-6 in their last 27 ATS on the road.
Kentucky lost a bunch from last year, and they are going to be way down. The Wildcats certainly have the much better talent here, but I'm not sure they deserve to be this kind of a favorite. Add to that the fact that Kentucky could easily be looking ahead to their next game against Florida. That is a huge game for the Wildcats since Florida has dominated Kentucky on their home field. This is a potential look ahead spot.
Eastern Michigan is a tough gritty team and in this situation I think they have enough to keep this one within the spread.
Take Eastern Michigan.
