Rested Kansas Squad Dangerous For Duke

The marquee matchup of the college basketball non-conference schedule takes to Madison Square Garden when the Kansas Jayhawks challenge the Duke Blue Devils on Tuesday. Kansas enters this game coming off three days of rest, a spot that may worry Duke, as the Jayhawks have won eight consecutive games coming off three days between games.  

Shark Bites
  • The favored team is 3-1 SU in the last 4 games between Kansas and Duke.
  • Duke is 6-1 SU in its last 7 games against the Big 12.
  • Duke is 1-5 ATS in its last 6 games as a favorite of 2.5 or less.

Kansas opened the season by losing to Indiana, which isn’t a bad loss, but the lack of discipline was cause for concern. Four of the Jayhawks starters fouled out in a game that saw a combined 63 fouls between the two teams. Frank Mason III paced Kansas in that game with 30 points but went just 8-for-20 from the field, including 1-for-5 from beyond the arc, with almost half his points coming from the charity stripe.

Duke had a more leisurely opening to the season, easily defeating Marist and Grand Canyon. Three players on the Blue Devils roster finished those two games averaging at least 10 points and seven rebounds (Grayson Allen, Luke Kennard, Amile Jefferson). Duke has already shot 51 treys through two games, something that may benefit them against a Kansas team that allowed Indiana to drain 15 buckets from 3-point range.
