The Kansas Jayhawks are by far the superior and more talented squad. They are struggling with COVID-19 issues. There is no telling whether they will be able to practice as normal. Or whether they will be able to go through an adequate routine.
McCormack is also one of those on the roster who has to deal with the viral illness. He is the Jayhawks second scoring leader. The Eastern Washington Eagles are one of the top offensive teams in the nation. They have a 15-7 record against the spread on the season. Not being able to discern what exactly is going on with Kansas’ situation, it is difficult to trust the team with a large number. Take the points.
