Predictions and Betting Preview for the Northern Illinois Huskies vs Kentucky Wildcats College Football Game on September 24 2022
- Where: Kroger Field, Lexington, Kentucky.
- When: Saturday, September 24, 2022, 7:00 PM ET.
Betting on the Northern Illinois Huskies
Northern Illinois has a strong offensive line, but that hasn’t been enough to get wins in the three games played. Despite consistently scoring points, they have only been able to win one of their three games, which was by a score of 34-27 against Eastern Illinois Panthers.
They now have two consecutive losses to Tulsa by a score of 38-35 and to Vanderbilt by a score of 38-28. They have allowed the same amount of points in their last few games, so they will need to pay close attention to their defense to avoid losing this game.
Betting on the Kentucky Wildcats
Kentucky has not only run with luck, but has shown competitive skills to put them ahead of their opponents so far in the 2022 season, and that allows them to be one of the teams that still doesn’t know what it’s like to lose. Their first victory was against Miami by 37-13 and the second against Florida Gators by 16-26. In those games, the team looked strong, mainly on offense.
Their most recent win came last Saturday against Youngstown State, where they took complete control of the ball, the clock and the field, winning with authority by a score of 31-0. The defense did its job in each period, while the offense took advantage of the series from the second quarter onward.
Both teams have managed their offenses well, but Kentucky has a better defense that could stop the Huskies. It may be a wide-open game that anyone can win, but based on what they’ve allowed seeing through three dates, Kentucky may be able to continue their string of wins.
Prediction: Kentucky wins by a score of 33-20.
