15* Mizzou/Baylor Big 12 GAME OF THE WEEK on Missouri +5
Missouri vs. Baylor,
01/21/2012 14:00 EDT,
Score: 89 - 88
Point Spread: +5/-110 Missouri
I believe the Missouri Tigers are one of the top three teams in the country. I also believe that Baylor is way overvalued after their long unbeaten run to open the season, which came mostly against soft competition. Missouri is the real deal, while Baylor is a bunch of fakers. That will show on the court Saturday.
Both teams enter this huge showdown at 17-1 on the season. There's no question in my mind that the Tigers have played the tougher schedule. The Bears were exposed last time out with a 74-92 loss at Kansas as their true colors showed through. Don't get me wrong, this is still a quality team, but there's no doubt that Missouri is superior after watching both teams play on several occasions this year.
The Tigers are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games vs. a team with a winning % above .600. The Bears are 2-10 ATS in their last 12 home games vs. a team with a road winning % of greater than .600. Baylor is 5-11 ATS in their last 16 home games. The Tigers are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings. Roll with Missouri Saturday.
