College Basketball Betting Trends
The Bears are 36-17-1 ATS in their last 54 road games. Baylor is 0-3-1 ATS in its last four Monday games.
The Longhorns are 3-10 ATS in their last 13 home games. The home team is 3-8 ATS in the last 11 meetings.
Texas let a win slip away Saturday with a terrible second half and does not exactly have the easiest of bounceback spots here. Baylor has been road warriors all season and despite a tough game on deck against West Virginia, I don't see the Bears looking ahead when playing an in-state foe. Baylor has managed to stay grounded and consistent throughout the season and I expect nothing less tonight. Bet on the Bears to cover as road favorites.
