Big Blue Nation Predictions, odds for Kentucky vs. Auburn and other key Top 25 games

8:10 A.m.


Saturday has 151 games -- so, 302 of the 353 teams -- playing. Below, we have five of the more interesting matchups, including an urgent Saturday game for Memphis, which has a lot of pressure at home against unpredictable UConn. Last weekend brought us a lot of chalk. It was aberrational. Ranked teams went 19-3. It was oddly refreshing to see the better teams win out, with some of those coming on the road. 
This weekend has 12 of the 25 teams in the AP Top 25 rankings in road environments. Who to keep an eye on? We've got your picks below, plus the latest podcast to listen to, which includes even more picks for Saturday and Sunday games.
Which the only game that matters in Big Blue Nation country is the Auburn game.

No. 13 Kentucky at No. 17 Auburn (-2.5)

6 p.m. on ESPN
Kentucky on the road in a big game in the SEC. It happens often. UK has one loss in its last nine games, a freakish 3 at the buzzer at South Carolina. Auburn actually rates right about the same area in most predictive metrics at this point as UK. But with how well Nick RichardsImmanuel Quickley and Ashton Hagans have been playing, I will take Kentucky to win straight up. Auburn's been wobbly as of late. This is the Tigers' first game vs. a ranked team this season. Expect Kentucky to win a slower-paced affair -- and an improved effort from Tyrese Maxey. He's due. Pick: Kentucky +2.5 (Matt Norlander) 

Come 6:00 p.m. tonight the battle will start.
