4* Big 12 Tourney SMASH on Baylor +6.5
Motivated by a pair of disappointing performances against Kansas during the regular season, I expect Baylor to take the Jayhawks down to the wire this evening.
The high posted total isn't a good sign for the normally defensively sound Jayhawks as it indicates that the books expect Baylor to perform better at the offensive end than it did in the regular season meetings. Consider that Kansas is just 1-8 ATS when the total is 140 to 149.5 this season. It has only won by an average of 2.4 points in these games.
The Bears are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 neutral site games as an underdog and 17-8 ATS in their last 25 games away from home when out for revenge for a loss of 10 points or more to a foe. Take Baylor.
