The Kansas Jayhawks hope to build on their 3-1 start to the season after beating the UAB Blazers, 83-63. In the win, Kansas shot 50.8 percent from the field and made 12 threes. Frank Mason III led the Jayhawks with 20 points and five assists while Josh Jackson had 22 points and seven rebounds. Devonte' Graham scored double-digit points and Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk also had 15 points off the bench. Kansas has scored no less than 77 points in all four games this season and is showing early just how talented and deep this team is. With the Duke Blue Devils banged up and no timetable when to be fully healthy, Kansas would probably be my early pick to cut down the nets this season. The Kansas Jayhawks have won eight of their last 10 neutral site games.
The Jayhawks are 11-3 ATS in their last 14 neutral site games and 16-6 ATS in their last 22 games overall. The Bulldogs are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games vs. a team with a winning straight up record. The over is 11-2 in Bulldogs last 13 overall and the under is 6-1 in Jayhawks last 7 overall.
I really like Kansas, but this is a ton of points. The Georgia Bulldogs are experienced and have enough playmakers to make this game interesting. The Bulldogs aren'g going to be afraid of Kansas like many teams are before they even hit the court. I'm going to side with the points, as this line is overlooking Georgia.
