Kansas continues its six-game swing away from Allen Fieldhouse, as it looks to bounce back from a 75-72 setback to the Colorado Buffaloes as 1.5-point favorites last Saturday, while going OVER the betting total of 142.  The Jayhawks are averaging 79.1 points per game on 50.5 percent shooting, which is important to consider when making your college basketball picks.  Offensively, the team is led by freshman guard Andrew Wiggins, who is averaging 15.3 points per game.  Kansas is 7-3 ATS in its last 10 games versus Southeastern Conference opponents.

The Jayhawks have nine players averaging nearly 10 or more minutes per game, which has allowed their bench to outscore all but one opponent this season and average 30.3 points.  Kansas is 3-1 SU all-time in this series and every game has had at least one team ranked in the top 10.  The program has compiled a 49-26 SU record against ranked competition under head coach Bill Self, including a 39-16 mark since the 2007-08 campaign.

Florida is also looking to bounce back from a setback, as it dropped a 65-64 decision to the Connecticut Huskies as four-point road underdogs on Dec. 2, while going UNDER the betting total for a second consecutive contest.  The Gators have won 21 straight non-conference home games, which can’t be ignored when looking over the college basketball odds page.  Just eight games into the season, the squad has had only five players appear in every game this season, including four on scholarship.  Florida is 5-11 ATS in its last 16 games versus a team with a winning SU record.

The Gators will likely start four seniors in this affair, with forward Casey Prather leading the way in averaging 19.1 points per game.  Florida sophomore guard Michael Frazier II is a dangerous perimeter player to handicap, as he holds the SEC’s top three-point shooting percentage—making 23 of 44 attempts.  He is averaging 13.5 points per game this season, with five games of knocking down five shots from beyond the arc.

Sports bettors will likely back the Gators due to the Jayhawks being 2-5 ATS in their last seven road games.
