Jayhawks Decimating Rival Bears

The Kansas Jayhawks hold a 1.5-game lead in the Big 12 and will look to claim at least a tie for the Big 12 regular season crown for the 12th consecutive season. To ensure they maintain a healthy lead heading into the final stretch of action, Kansas will need to get past the ranked Baylor Bears Tuesday. This has been a task that the Jayhawks have been up to with the team going a perfect 6-0 SU and ATS in the past six meetings between the two teams.

  • Baylor 3-9 ATS in their past 12 games as home underdogs.
  • Kansas is 5-0 SU and ATS in their past five against teams with a winning record.
