Dontarius James is averaging 18.6 points and 4.4 rebounds while Diante Wood is averaging 12.4 points and 3.9 rebounds.

The Jacksonville Dolphins are shooting 34.6 percent from beyond the arc and 63.8 percent from the free throw line. The Jacksonville Dolphins are allowing 30.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.2 rebounds per game.
The Kansas State Wildcats need a win after splitting their last six games. The Kansas State Wildcats are averaging 66.9 points on 45.2 percent shooting and allowing 75.4 points on 49.9 percent shooting. Mike McGuirl is averaging 12.4 points and 3.5 rebounds while DaJuan Gordon is averaging 9.8 points and 1.8 assists. Nijel Pack is dishing 4.1 assists and Selton Miguel is grabbing 1.9 rebounds.

The Dolphins are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Monday games and 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Wildcats are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 home games and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The over is 5-1 in Dolphins last 6 overall. The over is 23-11-1 in Wildcats last 35 overall.
The Jacksonville Dolphins have played decent ball up to this point, but they've struggled against steeper competition and will play their third straight road game in a week, which is never great for the legs. The Kansas State Wildcats need to figure things out defensively and just got smacked by Baylor, but they're easily the more talented team here and are kind of due for a breakout, comfortable win after a sluggish start. I expect Kansas State to win this game by double digits.
