No. 5 Kansas vs. No. 10 Baylor: Live stream info, game preview, picks and predictions & more

The only top-10 college basketball matchup on Saturday will feature Kansas and Baylor.

NCAA Basketball: Kansas at West Virginia Ben Queen-USA TODAY Sports

Two of the best teams in the Big 12 will take the floor on Saturday night when the No. 5 Kansas Jayhawks head on the road for a matchup with the No. 10 Baylor Bears.

Kansas (23-4, 12-2 Big 12) will go for their fifth consecutive victory, and they’re coming off a 19-point win over the Kansas State Wildcats as the Jayhawks tied a season high with 102 points. Remy Martin hasn’t played in nearly a month, and he could return soon so check injury news prior to game time.

Baylor (23-5, 11-4 Big 12) will look to extend their winning streak to three games, and they’re coming off an overtime win over the Oklahoma State Cowboys. Leading scorer Aaron Flagler returned from a knee injury, but their second-leading scorer LJ Cryer played in just one game since January 25th with a foot injury and could be out again.

The Pick

Kansas +3

This is way too big of a number especially considering Baylor could be without arguably their best player with Cryer. Kansas dominated this matchup earlier this month 83-59 and while that won’t happen again, the Jayhawks should not be underdogs in this spot even on the road.
