Kansas impressed many with its win at Kentucky, but the Wildcats have looked like a shaky team recently. Kansas hasn’t been a team you can trust at the betting window and the recent suspensions could cause some distractions. Baylor has played up on the road and I think the Bears can keep this game down to the final possession.
