Arkansas moves to slight favorite over Kentucky

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) -The latest Las Vegas lines showed Arkansas as a one point favorite to beat Kentucky Tuesday night in Fayetteville. UK had opened as a 21/2 point favorite Monday.

The Wildcats go in looking for their third straight SEC win without a loss. Arkansas is 0-2 in the conference. Before leaving for Fayetteville Monday, UK coach John Calipari said the Razorbacks are playing a style similar to what coach Nolan Richardson played at Arkansas in the 1990's. "They're playing that way, they're playing that way offensively." said Calipari. "Motion into driving and attacking. A few pick-and-rolls, get it up quick, get a shot off quick, go rebound it."

Calipari said Arkansas can hit from outside. "They shoot the ball well. They shoot it from the three, they shoot the twos well and they shoot free throws at 70 percent. So it's not a game you can go down there and throw a bunch of clunkers up, cause you're going to have a problem."

Tipoff for UK-Arkansas is at 9:00 p.m. on ESPN.
