ESPN Prediction For Tonight's Duke-Kansas Sport

Adrian Griffin Duke Blue Devils college basketball recruiting

Duke and Kansas continued its a trend of having close, hard-fought games between the two teams and that didn't change in the Champions Classic on Tuesday evening.

The Jayhawks have a starting up lineup that is made up of Devon Dotson, Udoka Azubuike, Ochai Agbaji and Silvio De Sousa.

Tipoff is at 7 p.m. ET from Madison Sq.


Preseason power ratings involve some guesswork, but I rate Kansas 1½ points better than Duke, which opened as the favorite. The college basketball odds for the game have the Jayhawks favored to pick up the win. Anybody who has followed it has seen huge returns.

In the second half, the Blue Devils would throw the first punch, extending its lead to five in the opening minutes, but Kansas would respond with a haymaker of its own, pushing Duke to the brink. We can tell you it's leaning under, but it's also generated an extremely strong against the spread pick, saying one side of the spread cashes in almost 70 percent of simulations. Since it has been two years since that matchup, both Kansas and Duke are completely different teams.

That being said, Coach K and some of the current Duke players know a bit about how this Kansas team plays, but Kansas knows next to nothing about this Duke team seeing the Blue Devils put a new five on the court every season.
