Against The Spread Pick
The Baylor Bears have looked like the class of the field in the Big 12, but they must avoid overlooking a struggling Kansas State team, as they visit Fred Bramlage Coliseum in Manhattan. The Wildcats are 3-7 in their last 10 games. The Bears are 18-0 in their last 18 games and have covered the spread in eight of their last 10 games. Baylor has had a hard time covering the spread in their last five-six head-to-head meetings with Kansas State. Baylor has lost each of its last three games against Kansas State. The Wildcats are far from the level they have been in recent seasons, and Baylor is playing at an elite level. K-State should make it tough, but backing the Bears to cover seven points is a must.
Over Under Pick
Kansas State has struggled to be a consistent scoring threat this season, and they currently rank 313th in the country in that category. Baylor has scored the ball at a respectable rate, and they have been hard to slow down, with seven straight games with at least 61 points scored. Each of the last three head-to-head meetings has resulted in totals greater than 124.5. Therefore a play on the over 124.5 is the smart move here.
