2020 March Madness Odds: Super Early Look into the Future

Tread Gently with Kentucky

Kentucky had a successful 2018-19 campaign, putting with a 30-7 record en route to an Elite Eight berth before falling to Auburn in overtime. Undoubtedly head coach John Calipari will possess the Wildcats playing at a high level, but he’ll have to enter the season with rather a different appearance. Four of Kentucky’s starting five will be likely to graduate or be drafted into the NBA as Reid Travis is an old and P.J. Washington, Keldon Johnson and Tyler Herro will probably be moving pro.
All is not lost, however, as the Wildcats have done a good job recruiting for the upcoming season, procuring two 2019 McDonald’s All-Americans, shooting guard Tyrese Maxey and little forward Khalil Whitney. I anticipate sophomores Immanuel Quickley and E.J. Montgomery to lead the charge and will work well with the incoming freshmen. With their new look, I would be hesitant to lay a wager on this club at +500 at this stage.
Kansas Could be Well-Balanced and Experienced
Kansas had a very intriguing 2018-19, showing flashes of brilliance and being ranked in the top five in the AP survey for eight months, including two weeks in the top spot. The Jayhawks ended the year with a 26-10 record, falling to Auburn. Kansas was a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde team when it arrived to home and away splits, going a perfect 16-0 at Allen Fieldhouse but only 3-8 in true road games — quite confusing results.
The Jayhawks had to battle through injuries, losing guard Lagerald Vick for the summer in February. He’s a senior and will not be back next year. Furthermore, junior center Udoka Azubuike played with just nine matches . However, Kansas, despite those holes in the frontcourt and backcourt needed a Round of 32 appearance. The Jayhawks should be feisty this forthcoming season as I don’t expect Azubuike to be drafted and Vick will be their only loss, so odds of +2000 provide decent value.
