Baylor Bears vs. Kansas Jayhawks over/under

The over/under on the contest is 145 points. When the two teams played last month, the total was 125 points. The Jayhawks have surpassed that total once in their past five games, but Baylor has done so in three of their last four. With Kevin McCullar banged up for the Jayhawks, the conference's leading scorer, Kansas might have trouble putting points on the board in a hostile road environment, so we would suggest hammering the under.

Baylor Bears vs. Kansas Jayhawks prediction

Kansas basketball is coming off a terrible loss at home to BYU amid a rocky conference play stretch. They might have gotten lucky and pulled away at the end of their last matchup with Baylor, but one would think some of the wide-open threes the Bears shot last time will go in this time around. KU is horrendous on the road, and it could get ugly if McCullar does not play again. I think it will stay close for a large portion of the contest, but Kansas just won't have enough in them to upset BU.

Final Prediction: 72-65, Baylor
