Kansas Jayhawks vs Baylor Bears 1/23/2023 Picks Predictions Previews


The #2 Kansas Jayhawks will go against the #21 Baylor Bears in NCAAB action in Ferrell Center, TX, on Monday, January 23, 2023, at 9:00 PM ET.


Kansas hit its first tough patch of the season as it attempts to defend the championship it won the previous year.


With their lone defeat coming against then-No. 22 Tennessee at the end of November, the Jayhawks won 16 of their first 17 games.


After recovering, they went on a 10-game unbeaten run before last week’s losses to TCU and Kansas State. Kansas is starting a tough week that ends on Saturday at Kentucky.


Before losing to the Horned Frogs, the Jayhawks had won 16 straight home games. However, barely 11 minutes into the game, they were behind 37-15.


However, the team’s star forward Jalen Wilson had another impressive performance, scoring a career-high 30 points against Kansas State.


Wilson leads the Jayhawks in scoring and rebounding with 21.3 and 8.8 respectively. Gradey Dick, the team’s second-highest scorer (14.4), was limited to just eight points on 3 of 13 shooting against TCU.


Kansas was overall a strong offensive club this season, hitting 52.1% from behind the arc and 36.1% from beyond. The Jayhawks are good at grabbing offensive rebounds and have a low turnover rate.


This will be a challenging road game because they are a generally inexperienced club. Baylor’s defense was not strong; according to field goal %, they are ranked No. 171.


  • The Kansas Jayhawks are 1-4 ATS in their previous 5 games. 
  • The Jayhawks are 17-3 SU in their last 20 matches. 
  • Kansas is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games with the Baylor Bears.

Kansas Jayhawks vs Baylor Bears Predictions 1/23/2023


Baylor had a successful non-conference season, sweeping 10 of its 12 games and losing only to Marquette and Virginia.


The Bears had a difficult start to Big 12 play, losing to teams like Iowa State, TCU, and Kansas State to finish the season 0-3 in the league.


They responded by going on a four-game unbeaten run, defeating Oklahoma, Texas Tech, West Virginia, and Oklahoma State.


On Saturday, Baylor trailed the Sooners for nearly half of the game before Jalen Bridges made the game-winning 3-pointer with 1:25 left, and Adam Flagler added another down the stretch.


Bridges, a transfer from West Virginia, scored in double digits in five of his last 11 matches after failing to do so in nine of them.


Although they only won 8 of the previous 43 encounters with Kansas, the Bears split the last six games against them.


They are one of the top offensive teams in college basketball entering this contest, coming in second in KenPom’s adjusted efficiency rankings.


Baylor is shooting well from all areas of the field and has the ninth-highest offensive rebounding percentage in the country.


The Bears also do well at the free-throw line despite playing Kansas, whose defense is ranked 19th in modified efficiency.


  • The total went OVER in 5 of Baylor’s last 7 matches. 
  • The Baylor Bears are 4-1 SU in their last 5 matches. 
  • The total went UNDER in 14 of Baylor’s last 19 games with the Kansas Jayhawks.

#2 Kansas Jayhawks vs #21 Baylor Bears. The NCAAB pick for this game is the #21 Baylor Bears.


Coming into this clash, these teams have quite different perspectives on themselves because Baylor won four consecutive matches while Kansas dropped back-to-back contests.


Since the end of the previous season, the Bears proved difficult to beat at home, sweeping 14 of their previous 16 games there.


Baylor has one of the best offensive records in the nation, but Wilson is responsible for the majority of Kansas’ scoring. The #21 Baylor Bears will win to a predicted score of 77-74.
