The first lines for the Champions Classic have been released. As expected, Kentucky will open the season as underdogs for the second-straight season.
No. 1 Michigan State opens as a 2.5-point favorite over the No. 2 Kentucky Wildcats. In the first game of the Champions Classic, No. 3 Kansas is a 4.5-point favorite over No. 4 Duke.
The spread will likely change before the Tuesday night tip-off. As always, wager wisely.
