Not a bad play. Kansas has been outscored by 15 points in the 1st half of their tourney games this year, while they have outscored their opponents by 42 points in the second half. I really don't think kansas will outscore them in either half though. BOL tonight.

There may be people that have more talent than you, but there's no excuse for anyone to work harder than you do.

Lew..all the books I spoke to say they are really heavy on Kentucky 1st Half, which is why they didn't adjust even when line dropped to -6 for the game. Most credit it to the fact there's been a lot of talk about how Kansas has fallen behind throughout the Big Dance.

I'm interested to see how Bill Self deals with this in title game...I know books will be cheering in Rock, Chalk, Jayhawks...and bettors will hope Wildcats come out gunning.

GL, hope you cash it. Personally I passed on 1st Half and will sit it out unless someone puts out a soft number late.

At this stage of the deal you are what you are, Kansas is a slow starting team that comes on late and turns up the screws defensively. Like I mentioned in another post, they've held the opposition to a mere average 19.5% shooting in the final 5 minutes of each of the first five games in the dance. I do lean toward the Cat's in the first half. But if this thing is close going into the final 5 minutes Kentucky could have their hands full. Best of luck with whatever you decide.
