FREE MARCH MADNESS PICK: Take the OVER 137.5 Kentucky/Kansas. According to the latest college basketball trends, Kentucky is 5-1-1 OVER last 7 games following an ATS loss and 4-1 OVER L5 overall. Kentucky defeated Kansas, 75-65 in the first game in Lexington on Nov. 15, 2011. That game did go under the total of 147.5 but would go over the current 137.5 total. Tyshawn Taylor led Kansas with 22 points while Kentucky had five players in double figures led by Doron Lamb, who had 17 points. They also shot 51% from the field. Kentucky is a very tough matchup for most teams because of their size and athletic ability. Kansas just doesn’t have an answer for Michael Kidd-Gilrchrist, at 6-7, 237, who is too big for Travis Releford (6-6, 207) to defend. Anthony Davis is a mega-talented player who can score inside and out and is just not just a defender. Kansas will look to the perimeter and the three-point shot to stay in this game.
