Kansas vs UAB Betting Odds and Pick – November 21, 2016


Kansas bounced back from a loss in its season opener to win two straight, one of which was against Duke, and that streak could reach three when the Jayhawks take on the UAB Blazers on Monday. If history is any indication, the Jayhawks should take the game without much difficulty, as they have won their past 12 games against C-USA opponents.

– Shark
  • Kansas is 5-1 ATS in its last 6 games against teams with winning records.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Kansas’s last 6 games.
  • UAB is 1-3 ATS in its last 4 games against teams with winning records.

You need to wonder about fatigue if you’re a Kansas backer, as the team has already made trips to Honolulu and New York and will be playing three games in the next five days. The backcourt duo of Frank Mason III and Devonte Graham has proven to be one of the best in the country, with the two combining to average 37 points, 10.4 assists and 8.4 rebounds per game this season.

UAB is still trying to figure out how to move forward since losing starting point guard Nick Norton to a torn ACL. The point duties have now been split between sophomore Deion Lavender and senior Denzell Watts, who make a deadly duo if Lavender continues to work well without the ball.
