2012 March Madness Final: Kansas vs Kentucky Free Picks
2012-04-05
The Wildcats were the favorites by many of experts from the start of the season, and most of it was because they have the best player in the game, Anthony Davis. “Anthony Davis is a great player, but he’s not Superman,” said an unimpressed Kansas coach Bill Self.

A lot of people are not happy with the NCAA rules that allow a player to be in the court one year, and then goes to the NBA draft; coach John Calipari has been one of the best ‘fooling the rule’, and he knows it.

“I don’t like the rules,” Calipari said. “I want Anthony to come back and be my point guard next year. It’s really what I want. There are only two solutions to it. Either I can recruit players who are not as good as the players I’m recruiting, or I can try to convince guys who should leave to stay for me.”

The Oddsmakers also think Kentucky is a big favorite in this game; they currently have the Wildcats listed as 6-point favorites versus the Jayhawks, and the game’s total is 137½.

The Wildcats had a push in the 69-61 victory over Louisville as they were 8 points favorites, and Kansas covered a three point underdog spread against Ohio State with a 64-62 win over the Buckeyes.

This is obviously a rivalry game, and despite there is no doubt in my mind the Wildcats are the best team, I think eight points could be a lot to cover. I’ll take Kansas with the points.
