Why #5 Auburn Tigers a good bet -2?

Auburn had to hang on for the 78-77 win over the Lobos on Thursday, but that might have been more due to nerves than anything else. The Tigers beat LSU and Tennessee on their way to the SEC Tournament trophy last week.

The victory over Tennessee was particularly impressive as Auburn dominated the Vols 84-64. The Tigers should be more calm on Saturday now that they’ve got the first NCAA Tournament win out of the way. They’ll have a big shot of beating and covering against Kansas.

Is Kansas a secure bet in the March Madness odds in the second round?

Most thought the Kansas Jayhawks would struggle against a good team like Northeastern in the first round. So many believed the Jayhawks would struggle that the betting line fell all the way to Kansas -7.

Auburn vs Kansas Final March Madness Betting Analysis

Auburn’s favored because they won the SEC Tournament and beat a much better team in the first round than Kansas did. However, the Tigers are at a major disadvantage against the Jayhawks.

Although the knock on Kansas is somewhat valid, that the Jayhawks don’t have that one guard that can take over a game, the Jayhawks play with 3 guards, two of which are 6’ 5”, who can handle the basketball.

Even forwards Dedric Lawson at 6’ 9” and David McCormack at 6’ 10” can handle the rock. The Jayhawks looked awful when losing by 20 to Iowa Stae in the Big 12 Finals. Coach Bill Self made an adjustment that opened up the offense versus Northeastern. The Jayhawks should continue to impress with a win and over against the Auburn Tigers.
