Summary: Bill Self called Marcus Morris the best all-around player he has coached since he has been at Kansas. Morris has taken his game to the next level becoming the go-to player for the Jayhawks this season. He is a sure-fire first-round pick who could potentially work his way into the late lottery.
Player Comparison: Ryan Gomes. Gomes was an inside/outside threat at Providence who made the transition to primarily the small forward position at the next level. Morris is of a similar mold as he plays the four or five at Kansas, but might end up being a three in the NBA. Both players have range on their jump shots but are also physical enough to make things happen in the post.
A little late on this par but here goes: Houston -134 and if time available going in the second tier spot the Dodgers either with the high ML or I may go the way of the RL. Another: Colorado -134, two open. Another: Nats -149, two open. Another: Boston -200 (Sale), two open. GL tonight folks.
With every sports outlet picking the Titans, I feel they are overrated. I had them underrated last year but loved their o-line. They keep referencing before Mariota got injured. The thing is they were getting killed by the Jaguars before that injury. They pulled out some huge wins vs KC and GB but also struggled in their own division. I also wonder how Mariota's injury heals for this season as it was late in the season. I think they will be more of a .500 team that keeps games close. Hopefully, that means they cover the spread as underdogs.
