The last two year’s National Champion, and two of the best offenses in college basketball, will face off in this conference matchup on Monday night at the Ferrell Center in Waco, Texas. The Baylor Bears have gone Over in 4 of its last 6 games, topping 80 points in 4 of those battles. On the other side, Kansas has alternated between the Over and Under in its last 6 contests and is due for an Over after going Under the 146.5 total against TCU Saturday. Baylor’s high-powered three-point shooters will go up against a Kansas defense that is allowing the highest percentage of perimeter shots in the conference, and with the Bears’ ninth-ranked offensive rebounding to back those up, the Jayhawks defense may find themselves struggling. So, as two high-powered offenses go head-to-head, we can expect a fast-paced game with plenty of scoring opportunities for each team as they attempt to get a big win under their belts as we approach February. This should be a shootout, so go ahead and take the over 148.5 at MyBookie.
Prediction: OVER 148.5 (-115)
