Kansas last remaining 1-seed, Miami’s Cinderella run continues
Kansas is not only favored in their Elite Eight showdown against Miami, but they’re the favorite at sportsbooks to cut down the final net in Caesars Superdome.
The Jayhawks are 5-5 against the spread over their last 10, but they’ve won eight straight outright. They outlasted Providence in spite of 11 combined points from leading scorers Ochai Agbaji and Christian Braun. Remy Martin picked a great time to deliver a season-high 23 points.
Miami has been clicking of late. They’re 7-2 over their last nine, but those two losses were by a combined five points. They’re 7-1-1 against the spread over that span, so their current tournament run is more than a few fortunate bounces.
The Hurricanes will continue to rely on lead guard Kameron McGusty, who showed up big against Iowa State with 27 points.
