A clear difference is apparent with Auburn’s Bruce Pearl and Kentucky’s John Calipari. These two coaches are dynamic and with the ability to make for immediate impacts. Above all they lead two of the top Southeastern Conference contenders with the college basketball betting line. Pearl in particular has done a remarkable job in turning a perennially poor Auburn program into a national power. By contrast Calipari has the difficult job of feeding the beast of Kentucky tradition. Both the Tigers and Wildcats are two of the most entertaining teams to watch in all of college hoops.
