Handicapping Kentucky (6)
Check out more College Football Future Odds at BetDSI.eu!

The Kentucky Wildcats are coming off two straight 7-6 seasons, but they have to replace some of their skill players heading into the 2018 season. The good news for Kentucky is that they have a lot of starters returning, including some very good players in the secondary and the schedule sets up pretty well for them.

If Kentucky can get their quarterback situation settled they could have a chance to have another winning season in 2018 and make a bowl game for the third straight season.

Let’s look at the Wildcats win total, their schedule for this season and win total prediction.

Kentucky Wildcats 2018 Season Win Total - per BetDSI
Over 6 (-120)
Under 6 (-110)


The Wildcats have a chance to go over their win total simply because they have three easy non-conference games and another non-conference game against Louisville they could win. The conference slate is never easy for Kentucky but they avoid Alabama, Auburn and LSU and they should beat Vanderbilt, and they are not without a chance against Florida, Mississippi State, Tennessee, Missouri and South Carolina.

SEC Win Totals

2018 Kentucky Schedule Analysis

Sept. 1 vs. Central Michigan

The Wildcats should not have any trouble winning their home opener against the Chippewas. Kentucky is listed as a 17-point favorite at BetDSI.

Sept. 8 at Florida

The Wildcats simply don’t beat Florida. They have lost 31 straight games to the Gators, the fourth-longest losing streak to an opponent in college football history. The streak nearly ended last season, but Kentucky found a way to lose. The Wildcats might have a chance this season, as the best time to play Florida will be early, as the Gators have a new head coach in Dan Mullen who will need time to get his system in place.

Sept. 15 vs. Murray State

The Wildcats should not have any trouble winning this contest at home against Murray State.

Sept. 22 vs. Mississippi State

The game against the Bulldogs will not be easy, but Kentucky is at home and they are definitely capable of winning this one.

Sept. 29 vs. South Carolina

The Wildcats have had all kinds of trouble against South Carolina lately, but this game is at home and Kentucky could actually come into this game unbeaten if they beat Florida.

Oct. 6 at Texas A&M

It is hard to see the Wildcats winning this one on the road, although the time to play the Aggies will be early before Jimbo Fisher gets everything in place.

Oct. 13 Bye

Oct. 20 vs. Vanderbilt

The Wildcats should be able to handle Vanderbilt, especially coming off an extra week of rest.

Oct. 27 at Missouri

The Wildcats are capable of winning at Missouri, but they will have to find some offense to keep up with Drew Lock.

Nov. 3 vs. Georgia

The Wildcats are going to be home underdogs in this one and there is no real reason to think they can handle a Georgia team that could be a national title contender.

Nov. 10 at Tennessee

The Volunteers are nothing special and Kentucky is not without a chance to pick up the road win.

Nov. 17 vs. Middle Tennessee

The Wildcats get another easy home game that they should win by double-digits.

Nov. 24 at Louisville

The regular season finale is a game that Kentucky could be competitive in. The Cardinals are likely to take a step back this season without Lamar Jackson.

2018 Kentucky Wildcats Season Win Total

The Wildcats season is probably going to come down to getting good play from the quarterback position. Oregon transfer Terry Wilson could get the job, but it is really wide open, as Gunnar Hoak, Walker Wood and Danny Clark have a chance to win the starting job. We know that Kentucky can run the ball with Benny Snell, so if the quarterback plays decent, the Wildcats should be pretty good.

Kentucky has four games they should win and only two they don’t figure to have a chance to win. The other six games are where the win total will be decided. If they go 3-3 in those games they will win seven games and go 7-5. The best option with the win total for Kentucky in 2018 is to take over six wins.
