Jayhawks blast Cyclones

Kansas cruised to 91-71 Monday night at home over Iowa State to improve to 23-3 overall and 12-1 in the Big 12 Conference. The Jayhawks led 50-40 at halftime and continued to pull away after the break. Devon Dotson led Kansas with 29 points on 11-of-14 shooting including 6-of-8 from 3-point distance plus 1-of-1 at the free throw line. He also accounted for three rebounds and three steals. Ochai Agbaji tallied 14 points, three boards and three assists. Udoka Azuibuike registered 13 points, seven caroms, two assists and two blocked shots. Christian Braun had 13 points and three rebounds off the bench. David McCormack added 10 points and two boards as a reserve.

Bears suffocate Sooners

Baylor earned a 65-54 victory Tuesday night at Oklahoma to move to 24-1 overall and 13-0 in conference action. The Bears led 30-24 at halftime and padded the lead after the break. Jared Butler paced Baylor with 22 points on 8-of-20 shooting including 5-of-13 from 3-point range plus 1-of-3 at the charity stripe. He also accumulated five rebounds, five assists and three steals. Mark Vital added 10 points and six boards.

College Basketball Betting Trends


The underdog is 6-2 ATS in the last eight meetings. The road team is 22-8-1 ATS in the last 31 meetings.


The Bears are 17-8 ATS this season. Baylor is 7-1 ATS in Saturday games this season.


This game should be a doozy. It features the second and third-best defensive teams in the nation in terms of adjusted efficiency, while the Jayhawks might have the slight edge offensively but it is pretty much offset by the Bears being on their home court. The key for me is the revenge factor as KU was already spanked on its home floor 67-55 by Baylor and certainly does not want it to be a clean sweep. Look for the Jayhawks to play a hyper-focused game today and snap the Bears' lengthy win streak.
