Kansas can’t get on track
The Kansas Jayhawks are riding a three-game losing streak following a 41-31 loss at Iowa State last weekend. Kansas has fallen to 3-8 on the season, 1-7 in the Big 12, 5-6 against the spread and 6-5 with the over.
Kansas has been a mess on defense this season, allowing 33.8 points and 472.3 yards per game. Offensively, the Jayhawks are putting up 25.1 points and 386.1 yards per contest. Carter Stanley is leading the offense with 2,569 passing yards and 24 touchdowns. Andrew Parchment is his leading receiver with 60 catches for 788 yards and six touchdowns, while Pooka Williams Jr. is the leading rusher with 945 yards and three touchdowns.
Bears still with playoff hopes
Baylor is coming off a bounce-back win last weekend. After the Bears took their first loss at the hands of Oklahoma two weeks ago, Baylor answered with a 24-10 win at home over Texas last weekend. The Bears are now 10-1 on the season, 7-1 in the Big 12, 7-4 against the spread and 6-5 with the under.
The Bears have been pretty steady on both sides of the ball this year. The Baylor defense is giving up just 19.5 points and 359.4 yards per game. James Lynch is leading the defense with 32 tackles and 10.5 sacks. Offensively, Baylor is putting up 33.9 points and 439.5 yards per outing. Charlie Brewer is leading the offense with 2,753 passing yards and 19 touchdowns, while Denzel Mims has caught 57 passes for 892 yards and 11 touchdowns. John Lovett is the leading rusher with 588 yards and five scores, while Brewers has put up 351 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns.
College Football Betting Trends
The Jayhawks are 9-2 against the spread in their last 11 games following a loss and 6-0 ATS in their last six games after allowing more than 40 points in their previous game.
The Bears are 6-1 against the spread in their last seven road games, but just 3-13-1 ATS in their last 17 against a losing team.
Baylor has won nine straight against Kansas and covered in the last seven meetings. The Bears have been able to hold Kansas under 10 points in four straight meetings and 14 or less in six straight. The Bears are a strong defense this year as well, so I see Kansas struggling to do much today as well. The Jayhawks aren’t a defense that should scare Baylor. The Bears have been pretty content with moderate scoring, but I think that is because they will just look to control the ball on offense and keep Kansas from getting many possessions. Baylor wants to win comfortably and get out of this one healthy.
