Baylor vs. Texas Point Spread Analysis 2/12/2018

Baylor sure is playing outstanding defense in their three-game win streak, holding the opposition to 62.3 points on a field goal average of 37.04%. They face a Texas team that they held to 60 points on a 35.3 FG% when they visited in early January. The Bears are just 1-7 on the road this season and 1-5 as a visitor in conference games, but they are a strong 4-2 against the spread in those Big 12 games. They could bounce here off the big win on Saturday, and that is the typical position I'd take, but I they are playing fantastically on both ends of the floor and could regress here and still get the point spread cover
