5* BIG 12 MONDAY GAME OF THE MONTH
Baylor vs. Texas,

Score: 77 - 72
Point Spread: -2/-109 Texas
The Longhorns aren't getting the respect they deserve by oddsmakers and I'm ready to cash in on Texas at just a 2-point favorite at home. Baylor has been over-hyped ever since they got off to that 17-0 start. The Bears are a mediocre 5-5 since that fast start, while the Longhorns come in having won 4 of their last five. Texas did lose at Oklahoma State 78-90 as a 4-point favorite last time out, but they are 14-2 at home this season with the two losses coming to Kansas and Missouri by a combined 4-points.
Baylor is just 3-12 ATS versus very good teams - outscoring their opponents by 8+ points/game after 15+ games over the last 2 seasons and are only 8-22 ATS in their last 30 vs. Big 12. Texas is 13-5 ATS versus good defensive teams - shooting pct defense of
