Baylor vs. Kansas - 9/22/18 College Football Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

The Baylor Bears dropped to 2-1 (0-0 Big 12) on the season after being defeated by the Duke Blue Devils, 40-27, this past Saturday. Baylor struggled on both ends of the field in the 1st half agianst the Blue Devils and couldn’t fight back after they went into halftime trailing by a 23-0 margin. Baylor outgained Duke by a 400-399 margin however, did lose the turnover battle by a 2-0 margin. Leading the way for the Bears was WR Tyquan Thornton who had 92 receiving yards and a TD on 3 receptions. On the season, Baylor is averaging 39.7 ppg on 500.0 total yards per game (328.0 passing yds/g; 172.0 rushing yds/g). Offensively, Baylor has been led by QB Charlie Brewer who has completed 60.0% of his passes for 3 TD & 1 INT while averaging 213.7 passing yds/g. The top receivers for the Bears and Brewer have been Jalen Hurd (6.0 rec/g; 83.7 yds/g; 2 TD), Denzel Mims (5.5 rec/g; 106.5 yds/g; TD), and Chris Platt (3.0 rec/g; 39.3 yds/g). Leading the way for the Bears backfield has been John Lovett (8.7 att/g; 58.0 yds/g; 3 TD) and JaMycal Hasty (8.0 att/g; 40.7 yds/g; 3 TD). Defensively, Baylor is allowing their opponents to average 29.0 ppg on 373.3 total yards per game (192.3 passing yds/g; 181.0 rushing yds/g).

The Jayhawks are 8-18-1 ATS in their last 27 games following an ATS win and 1-4 ATS vs. a team with a winning record. The Bears are 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games following an ATS loss however, are just 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall.

Kansas has to be feeling great as not only did they snap their 46-game roading losing streak agianst Central Michigan, but they looked outstanding in a thumping of Rutgers last week. Baylor couldn’t get anything going early against a solid Duke team, however, Baylor looks like they will be at least competitive this season in Big-12 player as they certainly have an offense that can put up points. Kansas has been incredible causing turnovers on the season, however, this is still a team that might go winless in conference play this season and as long as Baylor can limit turnovers, I think they’ll do enough at home to cover this single-digit spread. Take Baylor to cover.
