Lay Points with Baylor vs Texas

When looking at the NCAAB point spreads for Monday’s game between Texas (19-10, 8-8 Big 12) and Baylor (21-8, 10-6), it is a little hard to tell where this game might go. Both teams are heading into the second-to-last game of the Big 12 season and are playing well.

The Longhorns won their last game, beating Oklahoma State 81-65, pretty much controlling a matchup against one of the worst teams in the conference. The Bears picked up a massive win at home against Kansas, ranked ninth at the time, winning 82-74.

Texas vs Baylor ATS Pick: Baylor -6½

Looking back at the first meeting between these teams can help with college basketball picks. On the road, Baylor kept the game close and Texas needed a last-second layup to win. At the time, Baylor was No. 9 nationally and still is ranked into the second matchup.

While Baylor did not win the last game against Texas, it kept it close enough to cover the spread on the road. That helps lean college basketball lines for this game to start to side with Baylor, giving it the advantage.

On top of that, after Texas beat Baylor, it would beat another ranked team in Oklahoma. However, in the 10 games since then, the Longhorns have faced six ranked opponents, winning once and covering twice. One of those covers coming in that win.

On the other hand, Baylor could be coming off one of its most impressive wins of the season. The Bears hosted Kansas, winning against a team then ranked seventh while covering a four-point spread.

Texas vs Baylor Over/Under Pick: Over 144

Right away, this game’s over/under NCAAB lines seem to be a solid betting option. A big reason for that is that the over seems like it could be easily hit in this game, just like in the first matchup between these teams.

One of the biggest reasons for the over likely being hit in this matchup is that neither team’s defense has been that great this season. Against Big 12 teams, Texas is ranked eighth in points allowed per game (71.8) while Baylor is ninth (72.1).

On top of that, Baylor has one of the top offenses in the conference, averaging the second-most points per game (81.6). The Bears should be able to get their offense going home like they did to beat Kansas.

Texas vs Baylor Player Prop Pick: Ja’Kobe Walter Over 15.5 points (-102)

In the first game against Texas, Ja’Kobe Walter had a big game with 22 points. While his play has been erratic during the Big 12 regular season, averaging 13.6 points against conference opponents, he still plays a big part in Baylor’s offense. Walter did struggle in the win over Kansas with just 11 points, but he could bounce back against a team he already had success against.
