With Week 1 for the Kentucky Wildcats in the books, we look forward to Week 2 — the game that has been circled in the schedule for months.
The Missouri Tigers come to town for one of each team’s most important game of the season. Kentucky is coming off a thrashing of ULM, and Missouri is coming off a close-knit game against Central Michigan.
For Week 2, the Wildcats open as a favorite against the Tigers for the showdown in Lexington.
Circa Sports has Kentucky as a 3.5-point favorite over the visiting team.

Oddshark currently has the line at Kentucky -4.5, while DraftKings currently has Kentucky -4.
Kentucky covered the spread in week one against the Warhawks, thanks to a Donut Drennen final minute rushing touchdown. ESPN currently gives the Cats a 69.1% chance (nice) to come out with a victory on Saturday against Mizzou.
Kentucky will look to avenge a loss on the road against the Tigers last season, snapping their five game win streak over Missouri.
