    Tuesday’s Tip Sheet
    By Brian Edwards

    **Kansas at Baylor**

    — The Westgate SuperBook opened Kansas (23-4 straight up, 17-8 against the spread) as a one-point favorite, only to move the number to two within 10 minutes.

    — Bill Self’s team has won six in a row over Baylor while going 5-0-1 ATS. KU smashed the Bears by a 102-74 count as a 12-point home favorite back on Jan. 2. The 176 combined points coasted ‘over’ the 146.5-point total. Wayne Seldon Jr. scored a team-high 24 points to go with five rebounds and four assists. Seldon drained 5-of-6 launches from 3-point range. Perry Ellis finished with 17 points and six rebounds, while Devonte’ Graham had 15 points, three steals and four assists without a turnover. Taurean Smith had a team-best 17 points for Baylor.

    — Baylor (20-7 SU, 8-12 ATS) has won 15 of its 18 home games, but Scott Drew’s team has limped to an 8-12 spread record in Waco. The Bears have lost at home to Texas, Texas Tech and Oklahoma. If the line holds Tuesday, they will be home underdogs for the first time this year.

    — Since dropping an 84-66 decision to the Red Raiders two Saturdays ago, Baylor has captured back-to-back wins vs. Iowa State (100-91) and at Texas (78-64). The Bears raced out to an 18-point halftime lead Saturday in Austin and cruised to the finish line. They took the cash as 5.5-point road underdogs. Johnathan Motley made 12-of-13 shots en route to a 24-point effort for the winners. Prince finished with 17 points and four steals, while Lester Medford had 13 points and three assists.

    — Baylor had failed to cover in five straight home games until beating the Cyclones by nine in overtime last Tuesday. Motley tallied 27 points, 10 rebounds and four blocked shots. Medford produced 14 points and nine assists compared to just one turnover, while Prince went for 14 points and nine boards.

    — Prince is scoring at a team-high 15.1 points-per-game clip. Rico Gathers averages a double-double (12.2 PPG, 10.0 RPG), while Medford (9.7 PPG) averages team-highs in assists (6.9 APG) and steals (1.9 SPG). Motley (11.5 PPG) has a team-best 33 blocked shots.

    — Kansas is ranked fourth in the nation in 3-point shooting (42.3%), 15th in scoring offense (82.7 PPG) and 14th in field-goal percentage (49.0%).

    — Kansas has won seven in a row both SU and ATS, including Saturday’s 72-63 victory at Kansas State as a 4.5-point road ‘chalk.’ Frank Mason led the way with 16 points, two steals and five assists compared to only one turnover. Ellis and Selden were also in double figures with 14 and 12 points, respectively.

    — Ellis averages team-highs in scoring (16.5 PPG), rebounding (6.3 RPG) and field-goal percentage (52.2%).

    — KU is No. 1 in the RPI Rankings, compiling an 8-3 record against the Top 33 and a 14-3 mark versus the Top 100. The Jayhawks have only one bad loss, falling 86-67 at Oklahoma State on Jan. 19. They own quality road wins at Texas Tech, at Oklahoma and at San Diego State, in addition to neutral-courts scalps of UCLA and Vanderbilt.

    — Baylor is No. 22 in the RPI with a 4-7 record against the Top 28 and a 8-7 mark versus the Top 100. The Bears have swept Iowa State and won at Texas Tech and at Texas.

    **Michigan State at Ohio State**

    — The Westgate opened Michigan State (22-5 SU, 17-9 ATS) as a six-point road favorite for this Big Ten showdown in Columbus.

    — Since losing three straight games in mid-January, Michigan State has ripped off seven straight spread covers while losing outright just once. The Spartans dropped an 82-81 decision at Purdue in overtime on Feb. 9. Nevertheless, they hooked up their betting supporters as three-point road underdogs.

    — Michigan State beat Wisconsin by a 69-57 score Thursday at Breslin Center as a 9.5-point home favorite. The Spartans saw a four-game run of ‘overs’ halted when the 126 combined points fell ‘under’ the 135-point tally. Denzel Valentine led the winners with 24 points, 10 assists and seven rebounds. Bryn Forbes added 17 points.

    — Tom Izzo’s squad owns a 5-3 record both SU and ATS on the road.

The Spartans have neutral-courts wins over Kansas, Providence and Boise State Their best road win is at Michigan, while they have home scalps of Louisville, Florida, Maryland and Indiana.

    — Ohio State (18-10 SU, 15-11 ATS) is in dire need of a win here to bolster its shaky resume that has NIT written all over it. Thad Matta’s team is No. 74 in the RPI and has only a pair of Top-100 wins over Michigan (RPI: 54) at home and over Kentucky (RPI: 12) on a neutral floor.

    — Ohio State has won four in a row while going 3-1 ATS. The Buckeyes won 65-62 in overtime Saturday at Nebraska as two-point underdogs. JaQuan Lyle paced the winners with 19 points and seven rebounds. Jae’Sean Tate added 15 points and 12 boards, while Marc Loving also had 15 points.

    — OSU is 13-4 SU and 10-5 ATS at home. The Buckeyes have won 11 of their last 12 at home, but they are winless (outright) in a pair of games as home underdogs with a 1-1 spread record in those situations.

    — The ‘under’ is 14-13 overall for the Buckeyes, 9-7 in their home games. However, the ‘over’ is 4-1 in their last five outings.

    — The ‘under’ is 14-12 overall for the Spartans, but they have seen the ‘over’ go 5-3 in their eight road assignments.

    — Michigan State has won three of the last four over Ohio State both SU and ATS. The ‘over’ is 3-1 in those four encounters. This is the first of at least two meetings this year.

    — ESPN will provide television coverage at 9:00 p.m. Eastern.

    — Duke is expected to have Matt Jones (ankle) and Derryck Thornton (ankle) for Thursday’s game at home vs. FSU. Thornton (8.0 PPG, 2.5 APG) and Jones (11.2 PPG) were injured in Saturday’s loss at Louisville.

    — Missouri has covered the spread in six straight games going into Tuesday’s tilt at Ole Miss. The Rebels were favored by 11.5 points late Monday night. The Tigers are 6-2 ATS as double-digit underdogs this year. Meanwhile, the Rebels are 0-4 ATS as double-digit favorites.
