Baylor covering at home vs. Iowa State
Is there any reason to bet against the Baylor Bears? They'll host Iowa State at 12:00PM ET today.
The Cyclones have been a terrible bet in Waco. They're winless at 0-6 against the spread in their last six road games versus the Bears, who are 5-2-1 against the number in their last eight games overall versus Iowa. The favorite is also 5-0-1 against the number in the last six meetings between these two teams while the home team is 10-1-1 ATS in the last 12 meetings.
Baylor will break the record for consecutive 60-plus point games if it can top that mark against Iowa State today. In his first year as a starter, Seth Russell has three-plus touchdown passes in all six games and can tie Sam Bradford and graham Harrell for the longest three-plus touchdown pass streak in Big 12 history if he accomplishes the feat again today.
Oddsmakers from online sports book Mybookie.ag list Baylor as a 37-point favorite for today's game. Lay the points. The Cyclones are 1-18 against top-two teams in school history and this game should get ugly quick.
