Baylor vs. Kansas Live TV: ESPN
The Bears know that they have a great opportunity here to at least push the Jayhawks in the Phog on Monday night. The road team is 13-1 ATS in the last 14 games in this series, and Baylor is 7-1 ATS in its last eight trips here to Lawrence. These two teams are undefeated in conference play at this point, though neither has really played any of the elite teams in the conference quite yet. G Pierre Jackson has had a great career in Waco, and he is averaging 19.2 points per game this year. The question is going to be how the Jayhawks are going to stop C Isaiah Austin and F Cory Jefferson. These two are combining to average 28.9 points and 16.8 boards per game this year, and they have also blocked 50 shots between them. We know that C Jeff Withey will get the matchup with one of them, but will F Kevin Young be able to stick around with the other? That’s the real question. Don’t be shocked if the Bears are able to sneak into the Phog and get out of town with a victory. This is a whole heck of a lot of points to be giving a very good team that has the ability to beat anyone in the nation.
Baylor vs. Kansas Pick: Baylor Bears +10
Baylor vs. Kansas Prediction: Baylor 69 – Kansas 64
