The Kansas Jayhawks and USC Trojans face off on Monday in a Round 32 college basketball NCAA tournament showdown at Lucas Oil Stadium. 

The USC Trojans come into this game with a 23-7 record overall and they were able to beat Drake in their first game of the tournament. Drake hung around in the game on Saturday, but USC was able to pull away late to come away with the 72-56 victory. USC on the season is averaging 74.7 points per game while their defense is giving up 64.8 points per game. USC is shooting 46.8 percent from the field and 34.7 percent from behind the three point line. Evan Mobley looks to be a top pick in the 2021 draft, and on the season he is averaging 16.8 points while shooting 58.4 percent from the field and 31.4 percent from behind the three point line. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Kansas Jayhawks who had some trouble with Eastern Washington in the first game of the season, but they were able to pull away late and come away with the victory. The offense was the difference against Eastern Washington putting up 93 points and that led to the victory. Kansas on the season is averaging 73.2 points per game while their defense is giving up 66.8 points per game. Kansas is shooting 43.8 percent from the field and 34 percent from behind the three point line. The one big question for Kansas coming into this game is if they will have Jalen Wilson who is dealing with COVID issues. If he can’t go, that is a big loss for the team.Ochai Agbaji has been the best player for Kansas averaging 14.2 points while shooting 42.7 percent from the field and 38.7 percent from behind the three point line.

The under is 7-2 in USC’s last nine games played on Monday. Kansas is 7-2-1 against the spread in their last ten games overall. The under is 6-2 in Kansas last eight games overall. 

Kansas got into a shootout on Saturday, but in this game, I expect they are going to really try to slow down the pace. That slower pace is going to keep this game well under the posted total. Back the under to cash.
