Why the Kansas Jayhawks are a good bet -16?
Kansas fought the Duke Blue Devils to the wire in their first game of the season. Duke ended up a -1 ½ favorite even though Kansas opened as the favorite. The Jayhawks provided a great performance. If not for 26 turnovers, the Jayhawks would have beaten the Blue Devils. All Rock Chalk must do is lower their turnovers on Friday night. If they do that, they’ll beat NC Greensboro and cover the spread.

UNC Greensboro vs Kansas Final Betting Analysis
A deeper dive into the Duke game reveals that Kansas should have won. They converted 46-of-50 from the field. They converted 4-of-9 from the three-point line. They lost because they committed 10 more turnovers than Duke.
UNC Greensboro does not matchup well with the Jayhawks. Kansas has a dynamite frontline led by Udoka Azubuike and David McCormack. Azubuike and McCormack free things up for guards Devon Dotson and Ochai Agbaji. Both those players will turn the Spartans’ aggressiveness against them. The spread is high. Nevertheless, the Kansas Jayhawks should cover. Back Rock Chalk for profits.
