    Kansas 2 point favorite

    I thought it may be a point or even a pick 'em but I think sharp money ends up on ISU

    It seems Vegas miscalculated. They took Hilton into account, but forgot to multiply by the magic factor.

    Any way of telling how the money is coming in, short of them moving the line?

    Re: Kansas 2 point favorite

    If I was a gambler, I'd take that action. The 2 day turnaround should double home court advantage, IMO. Recall the OU game.
    I also think the KU visit is always ISU's biggest game of the year, and Hoiberg will have the boys completely focused.

    The problem with that is, KU plays about 3 Big Monday games per year. So they and Coach Self are more then used to preparing for them.

    Bill Self has already seen Fred's hand unless Fred has drawn a couple of aces since the meeting in Lawrence. I expect KU to be very prepared for the surprise lineup Freddy sprung on him at PA. Hopefully Freddy can pull out a couple new wrinkles to keep the KU D off balance.

    Hilton is going to be like a shark tank with a great white shark that was starved for weeks and strapped on the back of that shark will be a Siberian Tiger that was abused by a Jayhawk fan.

    They obviously didn't bring in the Hilton Magic factor. If so, they would have us winning by double digits.....

    I'm going with my husbands thoughts on this...
    Down to the wire... free throws... and Timeouts, and whoever has the ball last, will be crucial!
