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.
