Bet on Kansas vs Austin Peavy March Madness Odds

Written by on March 15, 2016

It is the time of year when many of you will be scrambling to fill out your brackets before the opening tip of the NCAAB Tournament. March Madness is finally here, and there are a few teams that have emerged as clear favorites. That said, we can always expect the unexpected, and there are going to be a few shocks along the way. The one place where we probably won’t see any surprises is in the 16 versus 1 games in the round of 64. While there have been a few close calls over the years, we have never seen a #16 seed win in the opening round. The odds that you are going to get on the #1 seed for the straight up win are not particularly great, which means perhaps taking a look at the potential margin of victory when Austin Peavy and Kansas go head to head on Thursday afternoon.

Why bet on the Austin Peay Governors

The Austin Peay Governors (18-17, 7-9) have already sprung one of the surprises of the year by winning the OVC Championship last weekend. That helped the Governors end the season on a real high note, with 6 straight wins dating back to the middle of February. As impressive as that run has been, this is a team that knows they are probably going to be in for a tough time of it versus Kansas in the South Regional. Austin Peay face a pair of ranked teams in Vanderbilt and Indiana in their opening 2 games of the season, and they were totally blown out by both. It really is just a matter of keeping things as respectable as possible here. The Governors are averaging 76.0 PPG, and are giving up 76.0 PPG.

Why bet on the Kansas Jayhawks

The Kansas Jayhawks (30-4, 15-3) are many people’s pick to go on and win the national championship this year. They have been nothing short of brilliant for a couple of months now, and are heading into the Tournament riding a 14-game win streak, which included them winning the Big 12 Conference Championship. This is a game that they really shouldn’t have any problem winning, and you just wonder how much energy they are going to be willing to exert to get the job done. There are some much bigger tasks ahead, which makes me believe they will hold a little back in this game. The Jayhawks are averaging 81.6 PPG, and are giving up 67.7 PPG.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

While everyone is expecting a major blowout here, I am more inclined to think that we will see a comfortable win rather than a total shelling. Like I said, this is not a game where Kansas will have to exert a ton of energy.Austin Peay Governors 68 Kansas Jayhawks 83
