WACO, TX (TheSpread) – Baylor is set to have one of the top offenses in college football in 2014. Will the Bears have what it takes to get to 10 wins?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the over/under win total odds for Baylor has been set at 9.5 this season. The over has odds of -150, while the under has a money line of +120.

Baylor is in its seventh year with Art Briles as head coach. The Bears are coming off a 11-2 record last year with an 8-1 mark in the Big 12, which led to a conference title.

Offensively, Baylor is coming off a season which it led the nation in scoring and total yards, averaging 52.4 points and 618.8 yards per game. Baylor should be able to keep the pace this season as it has Bryce Petty back under center. The senior threw for 4,200 yards and 32 touchdowns a year ago while only throwing three interceptions. Also back is receiver Antwan Goodley, who had 1,139 yards and 13 TD catches. One area of concern is the offensive line, which losses four starters.

On defense, Baylor gave up 23.5 points and 360.3 yards per game in 2013. The Bears have four starters back this season. The Bears should be strong up front with Shawn Oakman and Jamal Palmer combining for 23.5 tackles for loss last season. They join Beau Blackshear, a returning starter at tackle. Bryce Hager is also back at linebacker to captain the defense. He had 71 tackles a year ago.

Bet on College Football Futures Odds

Baylor eases into the season, facing SMU, Northwestern State and Buffalo before beginning conference play. The Bears will host TCU, Kansas, Oklahoma State and Kansas State in Big 12 play, while hitting the road against the likes of Iowa State, Texas, West Virginia and Oklahoma. A neutral meeting with Texas Tech completes a reasonable schedule. Certainly traveling to Oklahoma will be tough, but Baylor has the ability to run the table this season with Petty under center. His arm will make up for a lot of weaknesses the team may have in other areas.
