At the time of this writing, it is the highest spread on the board.

One day after comfortably covering a 17-point game time spread over the Texas Tech Red Raiders, the Baylor Bears open as 38-point favorites over the Kansas Jayhawks in the Bears' first plane ride of the season.

This is the kind of spread that makes me really glad I don't do that for a living.  How do you quantify how much better Baylor is than Kansas this year and feel at all confident in it? Do you use a dart board? Maybe a really smart octopus? I dunno.  But that's a big spread, and it should be a big spread, so there you go.

Vote in the poll below and give me your thoughts about this spread.  Also, check out a few more notable spreads from the Big 12/state for Week 6:

OU -14.5 vs. UT (neutral site)
WVU -6 vs. OSU

TCU -6.5 @ KSU (REALLY surprised this one isn't higher)
ISU @ TT (-11.5)
Looks like A&M doesn't play this week.

Should be a fun week!
