Baylor Looks to Stay Undefeated on the Road Versus Kansas

Baylor Bears vs Kansas Jayhawks Preview

This matchup could very well be a preview of the BIG 12 championship game. Maybe the hottest team in basketball right now, Baylor (18-0 SU, 13-5 ATS) looks to remain perfect on the road at Allen Fieldhouse. They face a Kansas Jayhawks team (17-8 SU, 12-11-1 ATS) that is heating up as of late covering five out of six.

Opening Odds Analysis

A very fishy line in this contest as the number two team in the country only opens as a slight favorite on the road against a surging Kansas team. The Bears open as just a sneaky four and a half point favorite in an arena that they have lost in 15 out of their last 16 contests. The total for this contest opened at 143.5 and has lowered to 142 closer to tip.

Baylor Bears News & Notes

Quite simply the best Baylor team in the history of the program. Scott Drew’s team enters a perfect 18-0 while shooting an unbelievable 50 plus percent from the field on the season. They are top 10 in the country in total scoring, field goal percentage, and first in the nation in three point percentage. The Bears showed some vulnerability at home last Tuesday barely beating Iowa State. In what may have been their worst game of the season, Baylor still managed to put up 77 points and easily erasing a first half deficit.

This year is the money year for the Baylor Bears. The roster is absolutely packed with seniority specifically starting three juniors and two seniors. Jared Butler is the go to weapon for Baylor as he averages a team high 17.1 points per game while shooting an outrageous 45 percent from beyond the arc.

Kansas Jayhawks News & Notes

A slightly underwhelming season thus far for Kansas standards. Even though they enter as a top 20 team, it is unheard of for Kansas to enter with eight losses already at this stage in the season. Despite losing a tough overtime road battle at Texas, the Jayhawks are winners of five of the past six. During this stretch Kansas has won by an average of over 13 points per contest.

Bill Self’s team enters with a very balanced scoring lineup not as all starters average within four points of one another. Self relies heavily on his starters as they all log over 22 minutes per contest. Juniors Ochai Agbaji and David McCormack lead the way in scoring at 13.8 and 13 points per game respectively.

Betting Pick : Baylor -4.5

Due to the recent matchup history, Baylor still isn’t getting the respect they deserve specifically this season. This Bears team is one of the best two way teams in NCAA history and has quite possibly the best comradery in the country. Baylor is the much better team in this matchup and should roll right through Kansas similar to the first meeting this year.
