The Kansas Jayhawks navigated injuries to secure a massive home win against Baylor on Saturday, but are back on the road for Big Monday action.

With the Jayhawks possibly down three starters -- Kevin McCullar missed Saturday's game and Dajuan Harris and Johnny Furphy are battling injuries -- can we expect big games from the likes of KJ Adams?

The Kansas forward has been a consistent threat around the rim, can he come up clutch for a banged up Jayhawks group? I got you covered with how I'm attacking his player prop for Monday's matchup.

Best Player Props for Kansas vs. Texas Tech

  • KJ Adams OVER 13.5 points
  • Chance McMillian OVER 11.5 points

KJ Adams OVER 13.5 points

Texas Tech's defense is most vulnerable around the rim. The team is allowing Big 12 opponents to shoot about 50% from 2-point range and are right around the national average in terms of field goal percentage allowed at the rim.

Enter Adams, who takes nearly all of his shots inside the arc, is a relentless rebounder and gets to the line a ton. He'll have plenty of opportunities to attack the Red Raiders defense inside and pick up the slack for Kansas, who is down its leading scoring Kevin McCullar on Monday night.

Chance McMillian OVER 11.5 points

This is a good matchup for the Red Raiders' guard, who is shooting 42% from beyond the arc this season as the team's floor spacing threat. The senior guard is averaging more than five 3-point shots per game and has sene his minutes trend up in Big 12 play.

This matchup suits him particularly well because Kansas is a compact defense that is more than happy to let team's shoot from beyond the arc. Kansas is 11th out of 14 Big 12 teams in terms of conference 3-point rate, so McMillian may get plenty of shots up Monday night, so I like him to go over this total.
