It is true that Baylor head coach Scott Drew operates in comparative anonymity to Bill Self of Kansas. Drew took over a terrible situation at Baylor but has built a perennial March Madness contender. To show he has led the Bears to the Big Dance eight times since the 2007-08 season. That includes two Elite and two Sweet Sixteen runs. Concurrently Drew’s Bears are again catching College Basketball betting respect. The Bears are ranked fifth in the country. Self’s Jayhawks are much more of a name brand program. Of course, KU is ranked third nationally and a Final Four chalk.
