Kentucky vs Kansas Player Prop Odds: Jeff Withey

Filed under: NCAA Basketball Betting Odds |

Kentucky’s Anthony Davis leads the nation in blocks this season, and is no doubt a huge asset on the defensive end of the floor.

So when the Kansas Jayhawks take on the Wildcats in the national championship game on Monday night, they will need to try to assert a presence down in the low post.

Who needs to step up?

Aside from Thomas Robinson, center Jeff Withey, the seven-footer who is Kansas’ best shot blocker will have to try to match up with Davis down low both offensively and defensively.

The more effect that Withey can be, the better chance Kansas will have of springing the upset of Kentucky for a national title.

The Jayhawks will need all of the 3.6 blocks per game that Withey has averaged this season, and maybe then some.
