Will Baylor be able to defend its home court tonight when the Bears play host to Kansas State at 9PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Baylor is the favorite in this game, as the Bears are getting odds of -5 points against Kansas State. The over/under total for the contest is listed at 135 points. Tonight’s game will take place from the Ferrell Center in Waco, Texas and will air live on ESPNU.

K-State is averaging 76.7 points per game this season while allowing 66.6 per contest.

Bet on Kansas State vs. Baylor

The road team has won four straight meetings in this series, while covering in five straight. The Wildcats have been playing very well lately, winning three of four while covering in all four games. The lone loss was by 1 point at Kansas. Baylor has covered in four of its last five, but the failed cover came as a favorite. I expect this to be a close game, as both teams tend to play to their competition. I like Kansas State to do enough to cover. The public betting is slightly with Baylor, but I will take the points.
