Baylor vs Kansas State College Basketball Betting Preview

Although it looked like their previous two-game losing skid was simply a bump in the road, the Bears have started to slide yet again. Baylor has lost two of their last three. While both losses were on the road against tough opponents, unranked Alabama and then #10 Kansas, it was the matter in which they lost which is slightly concerning. Against Alabama, the Bears lost by nine points in a game they should’ve won. Against Kansas, the Bears were destroyed 83-59 and were never truly “in” the game. Although Kansas State isn’t as much of a threat as those two teams, they still have played teams like Kansas tight before. Could Baylor really lose three of four?

Since their three-game losing streak, the Wildcats have now won two straight over Oklahoma State and TCU. This is a potential revenge game for the Wildcats as they lost to Baylor 74-49 just over two weeks ago. Although it’s hard to blame Kansas State for the Bears shooting an incredible 56.9% from the field, they never stood much of a chance shooting just 31.7% themselves. If Kansas State wants to have any chance, they need to get guard and leading scorer Nijel Pack going early. Pack averages 17 points per game but scored just 13 in the last meeting between these two teams. The Wildcats need at least 20 points out of him to be in this game.

Baylor vs Kansas State Prediction | College Basketball Betting Picks

Baylor might be struggling, but this small of a spread doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. While it is almost a given that Baylor’s offense will see some regression while Kansas State’s sees some progression, their last matchup was still decided by 25 points. Baylor is much better than Kansas State on paper and will be looking to come out firing on all cylinders to try to get back on track fast.

Nijel Pack can trade baskets with the best of them. The problem for the Wildcats is that he is their offense. Although they have many contributors that can step up, if Nijel Pack doesn’t show out, Kansas State stands no chance. Jump on this spread as Baylor should be able to cover by half if they play at the level they’ve been at most of the season.
