Iowa State at Baylor
- Odds: Baylor -8.5
- Over/Under: 140
- Time: 8 p.m. EST
- TV: ESPN+
The Bears return home after racking up an outright win at Kansas as a road dog (+7.5) on Saturday, and the market has overreacted as a result.
Iowa State covered for the third time in its past six games with a straight-up victory vs. Oklahoma, and 6-foot-5 star Tyrese Haliburton looked like himself (15 points, 8 assists) after he missed a home loss to Florida A&M with a sprained left wrist.
Haliburton is at his best as a playmaker off the dribble drive, and Baylor allows its highest percentage of points inside the arc (52.1%).
Given the Bears are facing a Cyclones’ team that’s scoring the 88th-highest percentage of points inside the arc, Haliburton and Co. can hang around in this one offensively.
