Wildcats, Jayhawks clash in premium matchup

Two of the most storied programs college basketball history collide in Lexington this evening. Will Kentucky or Kansas emerge with the victory?

The Wildcats and Jayhawks initiate the day’s marquee matchup at 6:15 p.m. ET. Online sports book Bovada.lv gives the hosts odds of -325 to snatch their 2,223rd all-time triumph. Bill Self’s crew, on the other hand, enters Rupp Arena as a +270 underdog.

Bet on the Action

KU recently decided to issue sophomore forward Carlton Bragg an indefinite suspension for a violation of team rules. Yet the on-court product in Lawrence remains thoroughly harmonious. Prior to a setback at the hands of No. 18 West Virginia earlier in the week, the Jayhawks hadn’t dropped a tilt since the Nov. 11 opener vs. Indiana. Senior guard Frank Mason III leads the way by averaging 19.3 points per contest, while veteran center Landen Lucas represents a consistent double-double threat.

For UK, its outstanding freshman core continues to reach new heights. Malik Monk erupted for 47 points against UNC on Dec. 17, and has been a terror ever since. Floor general De’Aaron Fox averages 5.9 assists to go along with 4.6 rebounds and a steady scoring output. As a whole, the Wildcats post 92.2 points per game.

Undoubtedly, Kentucky’s tackled a rather light schedule in January. John Calipari’s squad’s speed, though, should make the ultimate difference here. Look for buckets aplenty, and an outcome in favor of the Bluegrass State.
