Baylor is a Team to Stay Away From

The Baylor Bears will try to put an end to a major slide that’s seen them go 1-6-1 ATS over their last eight games when the host the Iowa State Cyclones tonight. Iowa State, meanwhile, has put together a respectable 6-3 ATS record over the last nine, and are also 6-3 ATS on the road this season.

Shark Bites
  • Iowa State is 9-4 SU in its last 13 games on the road.
  • The total has gone OVER in four of Baylor's last five games.
  • Baylor is 3-6 ATS in its last nine games when playing Iowa State.

Baylor has also failed to cover in five straight home games, but they’re likely happy to see an Iowa State team that they’ve beat in eight of their last nine games at home. Baylor opened as 3.5-point favorites for the game, which is also a situation they’ve struggled in as they’re an awful 0-5-1 ATS in their last six games as favorites.

Iowa State was the host the last time the teams met on January 9 — a 94-89 Bears win as 7-point underdogs. The game also went OVER, marking three straight contests to go OVER the total between the teams and eight of 10 overall.
