[FONT=Verdana, sans-serif] [FONT=Verdana, sans-serif]1:45 PM EST. On this Saturday before the Super Bowl, beware of ranked teams favored on the road over unranked opposition. Vegas is jam packed this Super Bowl weekend and football bettors will be seeking teams to parlay onto their Super Bowl choice. The 20-2, 6th ranked Baylor Bears will certainly draw some attention. Not only are the Bears right there with Kansas and Mizzou in the Big-12 but they destroyed these Cowboys on Jan. 14, at Baylor, by 41 points (106-65). Now they're being asked to win by 34 less points in order to cover. Sticks out, doesn't it? If only it were that easy. Baylor will play the second of back-to-back road games after narrowly slipping by A&M on Wednesday. The real kicker though is that its only two losses of the year came in back-to-back games against Kansas and Mizzou and they have those two upcoming again, in back-to-back games this week. This contest is more of an inconvenience than anything else, as they prepare to avenge the losses to the other two Big-12 powers. Oklahoma State is not in the same class as Baylor, Missouri or Kansas. What they are however, is a tough home side that that does have a recent home win over Missouri and one that is motivated after being humiliated by these Bears just over two weeks ago. [/FONT][/FONT][FONT=Verdana, sans-serif]Play: #553 Oklahoma State +6½ (Risking 2.02 units to win 2). [/FONT]



[FONT=Verdana, sans-serif]NORTHERN IOWA +2 over Creighton [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana, sans-serif]5:00 PM EST. Speaking of 20-2 teams, the Creighton Bluejays come in as the 13th ranked team in the nation and like Baylor, they're a ranked favorite on the road against an unranked opponent. Additionally, the Bluejays are the #1 ranked shooting team in the country, hitting at an eye-opening .516 from the floor. Creighton has reeled off 11 wins in a row. Laying a single bucket seems too easy, thus the masses will bite. Not us. Northern Iowa is 10-3 at home. They had a nine-game winning streak earlier in the year and that includes a win at Iowa State and 17 and 20 point home wins over Providence and Iowa respectively. On January 10, the Panthers played at Creighton and lost by just three, suggesting that this is a tough match up for the Bluejays. NIU does not have a dominant player like the Bluejays Doug McDermott. They have several good players with total balance in their scoring, plus, they play outstanding defense. Since that nine-game winning streak, the Panthers have lost 8 of 13 games and their stock has dropped off significantly while the Bluejays stock is soaring. This is a classic case of buy low and sell high, as the odds makers have made Creighton way too enticing to trust. Line says upset. [/FONT][FONT=Verdana, sans-serif]Play: #600 Northern Iowa (Risking 2.1 units to win 2). [/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana, sans-serif]WYOMING +4 over UNLV [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana, sans-serif]4:00 PM EST. Play: #586 Wyoming +4 (Risking 2.2 units to win 2).[/FONT]
