Why Bet On Baylor at +2?
Baylor looks like a good bet here because they’ve answered the bell every time this season. The Bears took out Iowa State 23-21 last weekend as John Mayers nailed a 38-yard field goal with just 21 seconds remaining to lift Baylor to victory after they nearly blew a 20-point fourth quarter lead. Another good reason to back Baylor is because they are the statistically better team on both sides of the ball in averaging 40.8 points per game (15th) while limiting the opposition to just 16.0 points per game defensively (20th).

Why Bet On Kansas State at -2?
Kansas State looks like a solid pick to get the win and ATS cover because they Wildcats will be motivated after having their three-game winning streak snapped in their 26-13 road loss against Oklahoma State last weekend. K-State went an abysmal 1 for 13 on third downs and gave up an insane 296 rushing yards to Oklahoma State’s Chuba Hubbard in the loss. Another good reason to back K-State is because they’ve won two out of the last three in this series.

Baylor vs Kansas State Expert Analysis and Prediction
While Baylor has gone 3-7 ATS in their last 10 meetings and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Kansas State, the underdog in this rivalry has gone 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings.
I know K-State has gone 6-1 ATS in their last seven home games and 5-1 ATS in their last six games overall, but Baylor has gone 4-0 ATS in their last four games against a team with a winning record, 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a straight up win and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 conference games.
I love the job that former Temple head coach Vern Rhule is doing at Baylor after taking over a program in complete and utter shambles thanks to the pathetic drama of former head coach Art Briles and I believe the Bears are going to show their mettle again by getting the outright road win in this one!
Pick: Baylor +2
