Kansas City vs LSU Prediction & Pick

This will be the first time these two programs have ever faced off against one another. There have already been a few major upsets this college basketball this year, but don't expect one here. LSU has won 10 straight games against Summit League opponents as well as 18 of its last 20 home games.

LSU shined on defense last season, averaging only 63.4 points allowed per game (No. 25 in NCAA). On the other side, UMKC gave up a whopping 71.0 points per game (No. 205 in NCAA). It's hard to see a Roos offense that shot 5-of-25 from three-point range on Monday being able to keep up in this one.

Final Score Prediction: Kansas City: 57 | LSU: 84

Kansas City vs LSU Best Bet

Kansas City was sneaky good against the spread last season, which makes shifting to the point total a safe move here. The over cashed in seven of the Kangaroos' last 10 games of the 2021-22 season, while the over also cashed in four of LSU's last five games. Look for rusty defense to be on display.

This will be head coach Matt McMahon's first game leading the way in front of a raucous home crowd. LSU averaged a ridiculous 78.2 points per game and shot 47.0% from the floor when playing at home last season. Their offensive efficiency will be enough to push this game over the 138.5 point total.

Bet: Over 138.5 Points (-110)
