People see the name Kansas ST and they think ooooooh! good team! Well they aren't this year and Baylor should roll. Stevopa has a great point about the over hitting as well. Normally I would wait till my book 5 dimes reduces it's odds to 5% and take the Baylor ML if it is below the key number 21, but I don't get reduced odds on parlays so why wait. A Baylor over 72 and Baylor-17 for a medium play.
With all due respect, that is total bs. Vegas doesn't want 50/50 on each side. They are too money hungry. They want 90% on the wrong side. Also if that were true, why would the line be going down from 20 to 18, when most of the public is on Baylor already?
Something is very fishy here.
