The first part of my parlay today will be from the Kansas Jayhawks vs the Miami Hurricanes game. This matchup will tip off at 2:20 ET and should be an exciting one. I’ve been back and forth trying to figure out which team will cover and I think the line is pretty tight. Miami has the capability of covering and I can also see Kansas running away with this one.
Miami has been very impressive on the offensive side of the ball, especially during the tournament. Their weakness has been on the defensive side. They were able to contain a poor shooting Iowa St team by forcing turnovers and capitalizing on the offensive side. Today will be a tougher matchup for them on both ends of the floor.
Kansas is the more balanced team and will cause fits for Miami. They have a much better defense than Miami and can hang with them on the offensive side, especially since Miami struggles on that side of the floor. The big difference maker in this one will be who controls the glass. Kansas ranks 45th in offensive rebounding and 100th in defensive rebounding while Miami is one of the worst rebounding teams in the country and it's these stats which has swung this matchup in Kansas' favor for me.
