Why Baylor Has You Covered
Kansas are coming off one of their worst performances in years, being blown out by TCU in the 83-60 final at home on Saturday. The Jayhawks had won his 16th straight at home before that performance, but he trailed by 22 points just 11 minutes into the game. They now have to go on a road trip to face a hot opponent in two days, making this a difficult scheduling spot for the Jayhawks.
Baylor started Big 12 play with three straight losses, but has since won four in a row, including a road win in Oklahoma on Saturday. West Virginia transfer Jaylen Bridges posted his double-digit scoring streak in five straight games after making two of his 3-pointers in the closing minutes against the Sooners. Baylor has gone 14-2 in his last 16 home games, while Kansas has covered the spread only once in his last five.
