Expert Picks

Bet on UK - Ole Miss and other sporting events at DraftKings Sportsbook.


There are several reasons to love Kentucky this weekend. Star running Chris Rodriguez makes his season debut, Kentucky’s receiving core looks to be the best in decades and the Wildcats have one of the best quarterbacks in all of college football.

However, there are also some concerns surrounding the Kentucky football team and their chances on Saturday. J.J. Weaver remains out with an injury, Kentucky’s offensive line has not held up well in pass protection and Oxford, Mississippi is an incredibly tough place to play.

Both offenses will have their share of success on Saturday, but Kentucky’s defense and advantage on special teams should tilt the scales in their favor. This matchup should have everyone watching on the edge of their seats up until the final seconds of the game.

Final Score: Kentucky 33, Ole Miss 30
