Shane’s Free Pick

Baylor has been a little more tested this season in the Big 12, and they are going to find success in this game. Baylor’s defense looked good in the first game, and the defense is going to lock down again in this game. Creighton is going to have no answer on the offensive end, and that will be the difference as Baylor is able to get the job done. Back the Bears to cover the spread.
