Kansas is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Monday games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games. The over is 17-8 in Kansas’ last 25 road games. Baylor is 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 Monday games. The under is 6-2 in Baylor’s last 8 home games. The road team is 24-11-1 ATS in these two teams last 36 head to head meetings.
Kansas comes into this game tied for second in the Big 12 standings, but they have lost their last two games and only won their previous two games by a combined six points. Baylor started conference play very poorly, but they have rattled off four straight wins and will be at home. Kansas looked really flat for most of the game against TCU and I think it is going to be difficult for them to bounce back on the road, especially against a Baylor team that has plenty of confidence. I like Baylor in this matchup.
