Saturday November 10, 2018 at 3:30 pm EST The Cyclones of Iowa State will face the Bears of Baylor.

The location is Jack Trice Stadium in Iowa. The point spread is currently Iowa State -14.5

A person may look at the overall records (BAY 5-4 and ISU 5-3) and wonder why Iowa State is favored by over two TDs. The answer to that is because Iowa State has been a juggernaut as of late. They have won and covered their last four games. And they haven't been playing cream puffs either. Besides beating Kansas last weekend, the Cyclones have beaten Texas Tech, West Virginia and Oklahoma State. The Cyclones are for real.

Baylor has lost three of their last five and are 5-4 overall. They were annihilated by West Virginia and Oklahoma, both very good programs. Last week they were able to pull off a win against the Cowboys of Oklahoma State. So, there are signs of life.

Baylor produces more yards on offense (446 YPG) than does Iowa State (371 YPG) but Iowa State's defense (323 YPG allowed) is better than Baylor's (438 YPG allowed).

Head to head Baylor is 7-3 ATS against the Cyclones and the teams are knotted at 5-5 ATS. Even though Iowa State is playing very well right now I have to put a small wager on Baylor +14.5 and hope that they do not commit turnovers. If they don't turn the ball over they actually have a shot at winning outright.
