The UK Wildcats opened as a +4 underdog against Kansas with the line moving up to +5 by Tuesday morning.  This game tips off at 9:30 pm ET on ESPN.

This is a Champions Classic game.

So far with just two games played, it's been a mixed bag for Kentucky. They beat Morehead State by 36 points in the opener then managed to fall to Richmond.

Myron Metcalf of ESPN:

"Kentucky is still largely counting on five-star talent to possess the athleticism and playmaking ability to score and protect the rim without relying on those shots from beyond the arc. It's a reasonable gamble that has helped the Wildcats reach the Final Four in four different seasons. But Kentucky hasn't been to the national semifinals since 2015. This Kentucky team has the tools to challenge any team in the sport. But the inconsistency and limited volume from the perimeter could complicate its ambitions."

Currently, UK pays $1700 for every $100 bet should they win the Championship.

Just like with Kentucky, KU enters this game 1-1.

Kansas (1-1) is coming off a 94-72 win against Saint Joseph’s on Nov. 27.  Through two games in 2020-21, the Jayhawks average 92.0 points per game and have a +5.0 scoring margin.

The team got off to a rough start against the current favorites to win the NCAA Men's College Basketball Championship, Gonzaga.

Phil Simon of Gambling911.com writes:

"Starting the season against a loaded Gonzaga team without their top two performers from a season ago, Kansas’ frontcourt was exposed in the 102-90 loss. The Zags showed off their efficiency hitting 64.5 percent of its shots while outrebounding Kansas by nine. The lack of exhibitions and non-conference patsies left the Jayhawks with an opening day loss."

KU pays $2500 for every $100 bet now should they win the Championship.
