Kansas Baylor Betting – Kansas, Baylor Set For Big 12 Rematch

Posted by Washington Tucker on 2/6/2014 10:19:05 PM

The Big 12 heated up in a big way over the weekend with the No. 8 Kansas Jayhawks falling to the No. 4 Missouri Tigers 74-71 in a tough road loss on Saturday. That defeat dropped the Jayhawks to 8-2 in conference play, providing a three-way tie between Kansas, Missouri, and the Jayhawks’ next opponent the No. 6 Baylor Bears in the Big 12 standings. Kansas won’t have much time to reflect on the loss before they arrive in Waco, Texas for their second Big 12 showdown in a row, as the Bears look to avenge an 18-point road loss from when these teams met the first time earlier this sports betting season.

That initial meeting between Kansas and Baylor wasn’t even close, as Thomas Robinson and Tyshawn Taylor combined for 55 points in a 92-74 win. The Jayhawks’ size was simply too much for the Bears to handle, and ended Baylor’s perfect start to the Big 12 season.

That duo of Robinson and Taylor has been incredibly consistent for Kansas, with Robinson leading the team in points per game and rebounds with averages of 18 and 12, while Taylor is second in average team scoring with 16.9 and first in assists with 5.2. Kansas proved in its first meeting against Baylor that a Big 12 title will have to go through the Fieldhouse, and a win here could really strengthen their position with still another game to go against Missouri at home. The Jayhawks played well in the road loss to the Tigers until the very end when their defense failed to contain Marcus Denmon, so they should come out strong looking to rebound in this contest.

The Bears won’t underestimate the Jayhawks’ ability down-low after being dominated in the first meeting, and considering their close home loss to Missouri in that first meeting this is as close as it gets to a “must-win” situation with their Big 12 title aspirations on the line. Baylor has won four straight including consecutive road victories, but will really need Perry Jones III to step up in a big way against Robinson for Kansas. The Bears’ strengths lie in their shooting ability, and they will need to be at their best to keep up with the Jayhawks.

Kansas Baylor Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

While they may not end up winning, Baylor should at least keep this game close, and after their big sports bet loss in the first meeting made them home underdogs for this one, it should allow them to cover. The Bears have the talent to compete with the best in the Big 12 at home, and while they might not beat Kansas, they should be able to cover the number.
