Baylor is coming off a 70-65 win over Wisconsin on Monday night to improve to 4-0 on the season. The Bears are 1-0 against the spread, as the win over Wisconsin was their first lined game. Baylor is putting up 81.2 points per game this season while allowing 59.5 per contest. The Bears are being led by Manu Lecomte, who is averaging 21.5 points and 3.8 assists per game while Jo Lual-Acuil Jr. is adding 13.8 points and 10.3 rebounds per contest.
Creighton is coming off a 100-89 win over UCLA on Monday night to improve to 4-0 on the season and 3-0 against the spread. Creighton is putting up 98.2 points per game this season while allowing 81.2 per contest.

Creighton has won two of their last three meetings with Baylor, but the Bears have covered the spread in all three of those games. However, Baylor is just 2-5 against the spread in its last 7 games following a win and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 after a cover. Creighton has covered in seven of its last 8 against Big 12 opponents and 18 of its last 26 Tuesday games. The public betting is siding with Creighton in this one and I agree. I think the Bluejays grind out a win.
