Of the four games that are on tap for today, Michigan vs Kansas should be the closest contest, at least according to the oddsmakers. Kansas is a very small 1.5 point favorite heading into Friday night's game.

Let's take a look at the odds:

Here are the "straight up" odds, aka the "moneyline":

Michigan, +110
Kansas, -130

These odds mean that a correct $100 wager on Michigan would return a total profit of $110, while a successful $130 bet on Kansas would return a total profit of $100.

Michigan at +110 and Kansas at -130 means that this game is basically a coin flip, with Kansas having just a very slight edge.

Finally, the over/under line for this game is set at 136.5 points:

Over 136.5 points, -110
