PREDICTION: BAYLOR , KANSAS ST
Oddsmakers currently have the BAYLOR listed as -4 point favorites versus the KANSAS ST, while the game’s total is sitting at 55.
Sophomore quarterback Charlie Brewer has Baylor averaging 331.4 passing yards but the Bears have allowed 14 sacks, including six in last week’s loss to Oklahoma. Baylor will look to limit big plays against a Kansas State offense that has struggled to find consistency. Former starter Skylar Thompson came off the bench to spark the Wildcats late against Texas but will continue to split time with Alex Delton. “No one has dramatically separated themselves from each other,” coach Bill Snyder said of his quarterbacks during Monday’s teleconference. “Obviously Skylar came in and had a pretty decent second half (against Texas) and, consequently, that put him a step up for the coming ball game. But, if healthy, they will both still pay.”
