Score: 57 - 56
Point Spread: +8/-105 Kansas State
Kansas State should not be catching this many points against the Bears on Saturday. Baylor comes in off an impressive 15-point win over Iowa State and were able to sneak out a 75-73 win at Kansas State back in early January. The Bears were just a 3.5-point underdog in that game and are now laying 7.5 against a team they barely beat.
Kansas State is going to be extremely motivated in this game. Not only did they let Baylor beat them on their home court, but they are in desperate need of a win after losing back-to-back games @Texas and at home to Kansas. The Wildcats have done an amazing job of bouncing back, as they have not lost three consecutive games all season. The Wildcats had won and covered three straight vs Baylor prior to that home loss earlier this season.
Baylor has been a great team to fade off a conference win, as they are just 3-11 ATS off a win against a conference rival over the last 2 seasons. The Bears are also just 3-11 ATS versus very good teams - outscoring their opponents by 8+ points/game after 15+ games over the last 2 seasons. BET KANSAS STATE!
