Will KU stay red-hot at betting window?

Kansas vs. Baylor College Hoops 2/23/16 Picks & Predictions

Big 12 opponents clash tonight at 8:00PM ET when No. 19 Baylor hosts No. 2 Kansas looking to build off its impressive victory over Texas on Saturday.

The Jayhawks are a 2.5-point road favorite versus the Bears according to oddsmakers from online sports book RealBet.eu, while the over/under is sitting at 150 points. Kansas opened as a 1-point favorite but with 70% of betting tickets currently on the Jayhawks, oddsmakers had to move the line.

Kansas is red-hot at the betting window, covering in all seven of its last seven games and is 7-3 agianst the spread in its last 10 contests. The Jayhawks are also 8-2 straight up during that stretch and is 5-3 on the road this season.

It’s been the opposite for Baylor at the betting window. Despite blowing out the Longhorns at Texas over the weekend, the Bears are just 3-6-1 against the spread in their last 10 games overall and are just 8-12 ATS on the season.

Prediction

This might be one of those too-good-to-be-true lines with the Jayhawks as hot as they are, but it doesn’t make much sense to bet against Kansas right now. Not only is Bill Self’s squad 7-0 against the spread in their last seven games and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 road games, but he Jayhawks have covered the number in eight of their last nine games at Baylor as well. They’re also 5-0-1 ATS in their last six games overall versus the Bears overall.

Baylor, meanwhile, has failed to cover the number in five of its last six home games and is just 1-5 ATS in its last six games coming off a win. And seeing as how that win came against the hated Longhorns, the Bears might suffer from a hangover tonight.
