BAYLOR: The Bears won their fourth consecutive game to start the season with a 35-24 victory over Oklahoma State last Saturday. It was the first time Baylor covered all season, winning at the betting window as a 7-point favorite. The Bears failed to cover as a 50-point (Northwestern State), 34.5-point (SMU) and 33.5-point (Rice) favorite in their three previous games before knocking off the Cowboys at home.

IOWA STATE: The Cyclones are coming off their first win of the season, beating San Jose State 44-10 as a 7.5-point favorite last Saturday. Iowa State is now 1-3 on the year, but has covered in back-to-back games after losing at TCU 41-20 as a 24.5-point underdog in Week 3.

OUR PICK: Baylor can score but will Iowa State contribute enough offense to push the score over the total? It's doubtful. The under is 5-2-1 in the last eight meetings between these two teams. The under is also 4-0 in the Bears' last four games overall, is 5-0 in their last five games versus a team with a  losing record and is 4-1 in their last five road games. The under is also 13-6-1 in the Cyclones' last 20 games overall and is 7-2-1 in their last 10 home games.
