The Jayhawks are an offensive team. They average 82.7 points per game while they only give to their opponents 62.9. The outstanding feature of the Jayhawks is that they rank #1 in the country in field goals percentage at 51.1. But they are only a 65% free throw shooting team. The hold a +10 rebound per game differential against the other team.
Pick and Prediction

Clearly Kansas is the class of the country.Nebraska is not. However, this is conference basketball and anything can happen. Crunching the numbers again shows the the Cornhuskers just can’t keep up on the offensive side of the game to match with the Jayhawks. Kansas pours in over 80 points per game and the Cornhuskers can’t reach 70. Coupled with the atrocious 3-point shooting from Nebraska makes this a game Kansas can breeze in.

Sportingbet has Kansas -6 for this game. We are talking spread here and not straight up who is going to win this game. Our prediction is for Kansas to roll and cover that spread without much problem. Courtesy of Sportingbet bet Kansas Jayhawks -6.
