Let’s be real: Kansas Jayhawks betting futures are usually live on a annual basis. Bill Self’s track record says it all. However, throw in a star transfer out of the portal, and all of a sudden things get real interesting.
That’s what happened Thursday when former Michigan standout Hunter Dickinson chose Bill Self and the Jayhawks.
It’s the first big domino of the spring to fall, and one that could have a ripple effect in the college basketball betting markets.

Dickinson was a three-year standout at Michigan. After being pegged a four-star recruit out of high school, he was the Big Ten Freshman of the Year in 2021 under Juwan Howard.
Dickinson, a 7-foot-1 big, averaged 18.5 points and 9.0 rebounds per game last year with the Wolverines.
It’s a big get for Self, who must replace production left from star freshman Gradey Dick and Big 12 Player of the Year Jalen Wilson, both of whom declared for the NBA Draft.
Self and the Jayhawks went 25-6 overall and 14-17 against the spread last season. Kansas, a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament, was bounced in the second round by 8-seed Arkansas.
Although the Big 12 had a couple of surprise teams make runs last season, the Jayhawks appear to be in a tier of their own, according to futures odds with Dickinson now in the fold.
