Bet on Texas Southern vs. Baylor

Baylor has won eight straight meetings with Texas Southern, but the two have split their last two lined games at the betting window. Baylor is dealing with some injuries tonight, but the difference in this game should be defense. Texas Southern struggles to make stops while the Baylor defense has been doing a very good job this season. The public betting is backing Baylor in this game and I think the Bears will be able to pull away early and cruise to a cover.
