Spread Pick: Kansas -7

UCF would stand a much better chance to keep this one close if Kansas did not just have a scare against TCU. This is arguably the biggest college basketball opponent UCF has played host to, and it is the team’s first Big12 home game.

All that to say, UCF will be helped by a solid atmosphere. The question is just how much this will help the Knights. UCF already got its “welcome to the Big 12” moment against Kansas State.

The Knights can make this a game for some of the matchup, but Kansas is likely to pull away late. Look for Kansas to cover the spread in the NCAA basketball odds.
