  • Today we have a early game between The Baylor Bears and Texas Longhorns in a college basketball showdown at the Moody Center. Let’s look at some betting angles for this matchup and give a winning prediction.

The Baylor Team Preview

  • Baylor just played against Kansas State in their last game and took a rare loss. The Bears were on the road for that game and they were able to force overtime, but they were outscored 14-10 and that's what led to the loss. This Bears team is no joke and will be out for big bounce back today! Langston Love was the top player against K-State, putting up 15 points, five rebounds, and one assist. I expect another big game from him in this game. Baylor on the season is averaging 84 points per game and their defense is giving up 68 points per game. The defense at times has been a bit inconsistent but the offense is ranked 16th. Ja’Kobe Walter has been the top player for Baylor this season averaging 14.8 points while shooting 42.1 percent from the field and 36.5 percent from behind the three point line. Can we see a big bounce win here or will they drop two games in a row!?

The Texas Team Preview

  • Texas is coming off a loss against UCF but at the end of the game things got a little heated! All the talk after the game was about coach Rodney Terry. During the postgame handshake line, a few UCF players did the "horns down” symbol and Terry wasn't very happy & had quite the reaction. I honestly belive with those comments and remarks, it’s going to put even more of a target on their teams back. Texas has been a bit overrated this season I think, they are averaging 77 points per game and their defense is only giving up 67 points per game. The offense is ranked 108th in the league while the defense is ranked 79th. Max Abmas has been the top player for Texas this season averaging 17.8 points while shooting 45.6 percent from the field and 40.9 percent from behind the three point line. Can this team overcome this road bump and walk away with a win here at home!?

The Plugs Game Prediction

💎 BAYLOR BEARS +3.5 -145

  • This should be a good game to tune into today to start your College Hoops slate off with, especially if your a Baylor fan or backing them in this game! I think Texas could be in trouble in this game today and chances are there is going to be some more "horns downs" in this postgame handshake line also. Baylor offense is serious and very talented, their averaging 84 points per game and that's bad news for this Texas defense that has been pretty inconsistent lately. Baylor is going to have no problem running up the score here and I'm actually expecting to see Texas have a very tough time getting any kind of offense going at all. Texas is going to have no answers for the Bears today. Back Baylor against the spread for a easy win and a bounce back!
