Kentucky-Louisville Spread Opened As A Pick'em, Already Up To Wildcats By 3.5 and Rising

Will Kentucky's men's basketball team lose a game this season? The Wildcats' best chance for a loss might come Saturday, when John Calipari's squad travels to Louisville to take on the No. 4-ranked Cardinals. 

The betting world seems to think so, anyway. 

The contest between No. 1 Kentucky (12-) and No. 4 Louisville (11-0) opened as a pick'em game. The spread is rising fast in favor of the Wildcats, though.

It's still the smallest spread of the season for Kentucky - by far.

Kentucky and Louisville are set to kick off at 2 p.m. E.T. Saturday. The game will be televised on ESPN2.
