The Baylor Bears and the Kansas State Wildcats meet in college basketball action from Bramlage Coliseum on Monday.
Baylor rolls in here at 19-1 so far. The Bears’ lone loss came way back on November 8, and they’ve taken out Oklahoma, Florida, Iowa State and TCU across their last four games.
In the win over the Frogs, Baylor’s top scorer was MaCio Teague with 19 points and six rebounds. Freddie Gillespie doubled up with 12 points and 11 rebounds there, and Jared Butler notched 10 points.
Over on the Kansas State side, they’re 9-12 this year. The Wildcats are 1-3 in their last four games, beating Oklahoma while otherwise dropping to Kansas, Alabama and West Virginia.
In the loss to the Mountaineers, Kansas State’s David Sloan led the way on 13 points with three assists and two rebounds. Also in double-digits there was Xavier Sneed with 11 points and two rebounds.
The Wildcats are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last five overall. The over is 9-2 in Kansas State’s last 11 home games and 12-5 in their last 17 overall.
Meanwhile, the Bears are 36-16-1 ATS in their last 53 road games and 6-1 ATS in their last seven after an ATS win. Baylor is 8-1 ATS in their last nine overall and the under is 7-2 in their last nine overall.
In this new calendar year, the Bears haven’t had a ton of trouble with many teams; they posted a 12-point win over Kansas, however Texas Tech (five points) and Oklahoma (four points) gave Baylor a bit of a scare on the final tally. Still, there’s not much to complain about.
As for Kansas State, they’ve stumbled a bit since their big win over West Virginia, and they’ve only eclipsed 61 points once in four games. The line on this is going to be pretty thick just about everywhere, but I still like Baylor on the cover.
