Baylor is a vintage bubble team right now, as it has just 17 wins against 12 losses, and it is running out of time to change the minds of the voters in the Selection Committee. Losing here against a 13-16 team would be bad news for the Bears, though obviously, the college basketball odds suggest that it is about a 50/50 proposition. The Longhorns with G Myck Kabongo in the lineup are obviously a heck of a lot better than they are without him, and that has been seen in some wins against teams like the Oklahoma Sooners (who swept Baylor) and the Iowa State Cyclones. It’s a dangerous game for a Baylor outfit that really wants to run, but probably won’t get the chance to in Austin. Without Kabongo in the fold, the Longhorns had the Bears dead to rights in Waco, losing 86-79 in overtime in a game in which UT committed 26 fouls and had two players foul out in the dying minutes of the game or in overtime. Baylor only had 12 whistles against it, and it still was only just barely able to win the game. Texas is 3-1 ATS in the last four in this series, and we think that it improves to 4-1 ATS in the last five with a win that is going to cripple the bubble chances of the Bears.
Baylor vs. Texas Pick: Texas Longhorns +1.5
