ITP: Baylor Comeback, Big Monday, and WVU Prop Bets

Death, taxes, and Daniel screwing up college basketball predictions. Oh, and also, KU beat Baylor at home, Cliff Alexander didn’t play very much, and Kentucky won. It had to have been the most predictable weekend in the history of the sport. Kansas survived a tougher-than-most-expected-it-to-be game against the Baylor Bears to pick up their 10th win of the conference season. Cliff...

Baylor Bears kicker Chris Callahan was the hero of the day last week when he kicked the game-winning field goal as time expired to give the Bears a 61-58 win over TCU.
