7:00 p.m. ET: Kansas Jayhawks (0-0) at Michigan State Spartans (0-0)
Spread: Kansas -4
This game will be played at Madison Square Garden as part of the Champions Classic. The Spartans lost three of their best players in Aaron Henry, Joshua Langford, and Rocket Watts plus solid reserve Foster Loyer to transfer. The Spartans lost almost all of their offensive production from last season including all double-digit scorers. The Jayhawks Jalen Wilson is suspended the first couple of games because of a DUI arrest but Ochai Agbaji, Christian Braun and David McCormack are back. The Jayhawks also brought in Remy Martin who was one of the best players in the Pac 12 with ASU. The Jayhawks are the much better team and even though you can never count Izzo and the Spartans out, they shouldn’t be able to compete with this Kansas team at any point in the season. Take Kansas to get the win in this opener.
