Conditt has been great down the stretch. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I actually hope he comes back next year.Last time we played them, we hit 40% of our threes and they hit 21%. We also kept their rebounding advantage to 4. If Baylor comes out rusty and not taking us seriously, I could see us keeping it closer than we expect. Conditt playing hard without stupid fouls would go a loooong way in this one.
My guess is they will want to go hard. This is their warm up before a top 10 matchup and they should be well rested. Only way they dont go hard the 2nd half is if they come out firing on all cylinders and ease up in the 2nd. If they are rusty in the 1st and shake off the rust in the 2nd they will crush us.I can see a 10 point game for most of it. The question will be just how hard Baylor wants to push once the wheels come off int he last 5 minutes.
I locked them in +23.5 on Fan Duel. Best case scenario, I am happy with any loss within 23. Worst case scenario, it's a very dark evening for Cyclone basketball and I'm out $10.My guy says take ISU, but I have no faith in taking it. I’ll wait for the game to start before betting. I have no confidence in that line.
