NCAA Sweet 16 Betting: Indiana Hoosiers vs Kentucky Wildcats Pick, Prediction, and Odds
In the South Region of the 2012 NCAA Tournament we have a match-up between two teams who have already met once this year, in a game that was probably one of the best games of the entire college basketball season. This game ended up being the only loss of Kentucky's regular season, as they were beaten on a last second shot by the Hoosiers, who were sent into a hysteria after knocking off the Wildcats. Now, the Indiana Hoosiers and Kentucky Wildcats will meet once again, but this time it's on an even bigger stage in the 2012 NCAA Tournament. The Hoosiers came into this tournament as a four seed overall, while the Wildcats were the number one seed, and many people anticipated a rematch between these two in the Sweet 16.

The Hoosiers knocked off two double digit seeds in New Mexico State, and probably one of the strongest double digit seeds in Virginia Commonwealth. Indiana will now have to find a way to redo exactly what they did back when they knocked off Kentucky, but it's not going to be easy. Kentucky started off with back to back easy wins against Western Kentucky and then Iowa State, both of which were double digit wins. The Wildcats are playing at the top of their game right now, and that explains why they are a popular choice by sports bettors to take down the 2012 NCAA National Championship when all is said and done.
Tip off for this game is set for Friday night, March 23rd at 9:45pm EST, and many people all around the nation will have their eyes locked on this game to see if the Hoosiers and head coach Tom Crean will be able to pull the upset once again.

The Hoosiers will be in for a tall task here. The Wildcats have their eyes set on the prize, and it looks like any team who gets in their way could be in for a tough day on the court. I think that Kentucky is just too talented this year, and that this will be the season that they end up taking it all down. Unfortunately for Indiana, that means that I'm going with the Wildcats because I simply don't feel that the Hoosiers will have the fire power to be able to slow down Anthony Davis and company. I'm going with the Wildcats to take it down by six points.
Prediction: Kentucky Wildcats: 75 Indiana Hoosiers- 69

I do like the fact that I can get so many points with a talented Indiana team who will come into this game prepared to put up a fight. I can't see it being a blowout here either, so while I think that the Wildcats are going to win the game, I'm going to be picking the Indiana Hoosiers to cover the big spread of +9.
Pick: Indiana Hoosiers +9
