The Bears are 6-2-1 ATS in their last 9 road games, 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 Saturday games and 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Jayhawks are 5-11 ATS in their last 16 Saturday games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games. The Bears are 11-5-1 ATS in the last 17 meetings in Kansas and the road team is 21-7-1 ATS in the last 29 meetings. The over is 7-2 in Jayhawks last 9 overall. The over is 13-5 in Bears last 18 overall.
The Kansas Jayhawks are winning at home this season by an average of 14.2 points while shooting 49 percent from the field, but they've had a few hiccups here and there and aren't exactly lighting the world in fire in their last five games. The Baylor Bears are good defensively, usually hang around in these ugly games and are a solid 7-4-1 ATS on the road this season. Baylor is also 8-4 ATS as an underdog. I'll take a shot with the points.
