Las Vegas - If you looked down at the eckSTATic numbers, it would seem that Kansas is the side in the matchup against Baylor. However, there is something to be said about revenge.
The Bears were demolished, obliterated, smoked, EMBARRASSED, pick one, at Lawrence back in January, 102-74. OUCH! The calculator tells me that is a 28 point margin, and if the calculator could talk, it would say, REVENGE is so SWEET!
Baylor just avenged an earlier loss to Texas, beating the Longhorns at Austin, 78-64. And that W came on the heels of a crazy 100-91 victory over Iowa State. Totally understand that the Jayhawks are rocking the Big 12, with seven straight wins, but this time, we roll with dog, and, with revenge. Gimme the Bears +2 points over KU for half a Benjamin.
EckSTATic: For your wagering pleasure, here are your spread stats of the day. Checking out the wicked good Big 12, and locking in on the Baylor/Kansas matchup. The Bears have not been rewarding their backers in Waco, covering only one of the last six (17%). But the Jayhawks rumble into Texas on a GORGEOUS 7-0 run, straight up, and, against the spread. Total players wanna know that Baylor has gone 1-5 to the OVER, while KU's last five have been a perfect 5-0 to the UNDER.
