With Kentucky (37-0) being so good this year, the topic keeps coming up as to how they would fair against the worst team in the NBA (currently the Knicks). This headline I saw yesterday made me mad:
For @YahooSports: Vegas oddsmakers: Knicks would be heavily favored against Kentucky. http://t.co/SwQ1Og2cux pic.twitter.com/0hHbMhcn5s

Ya think? That is not news. I'm so sick of hearing about this. The article sites a Vegas sports book who claims the Knicks would be 13.5-point favorites vs. Kentucky. That's an absurdly low number. Re-read the title above. The gap in talent level between the Knicks and Kentucky is significantly greater than the one between Kentucky and West Virginia.
