Over the past five years, the proprietary computer model has generated an impressive profit of almost $2,100 for $100 players on its top-rated college basketball picks against the spread. Anyone who has followed it has seen HUGE returns.

The Wildcats have been beating up on far less talented teams since losing to Duke 79-71 in its tip-off game. The revamped roster features West Virginia transfer Oscar Tshiebwe, who leads the nation with 16 rebounds per game and is one of three Wildcats averaging more than 13 points. The 6-foot-9 forward scores 13.2, with TyTy Washington leading the way at 14.8 and Keion Brooks adding 14.2. Washington and Brooks kick in more than 10 rebounds. The Wildcats average more than 46 rebounds, while the Chippewas get just 29.

CMU was blown out by 53 points against No. 1 Gonzaga but has lost by more than 10 points just twice this season. The Chippewas shoot better from outside than Kentucky, with CMU making 35.4 percent (121st) and UK at 34.6 (149th). Ralph Bissainthe returned after missing the first three games and had 18 rebounds in the past two, and Jermaine Jackson (13.6 points) and Harrison Henderson (10.8) are strong shooters. They combined for 38 points and hit seven of 13 three-pointers in a 76-69 in Tuesday's loss to Bellarmine.
