Baylor vs. West Virginia Pick

Baylor vs. West Virginia College Basketball Predictions 1/9/18

Can No. 2 West Virginia continue its impressive run when the Mountaineers host Baylor tonight at 7PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, West Virginia is the favorite in this game, as the Mountaineers are getting odds of -11 points against Baylor. The over/under total for the contest is listed at 147.5 points. Tonight’s game takes place from WVU Coliseum in Morgantown, West Virginia and will air live on ESPN2.

West Virginia has climbed to No. 2 in the rankings thanks to a 14-game win streak. Their latest win was 89-76 over Oklahoma this past weekend. WVU is now 14-1 overall, 3-0 in the Big 12 and 6-5 against the spread. The Mountaineers have covered the spread in three straight as well. WVU is putting up 84.5 points per game this season while allowing 65.7 per contest. Jevon Carter is putting up 16.7 points, 5.7 rebounds, 6.9 assists and 3.7 steals per game to lead WVU while Lamont West is adding 12.9 points and 5.4 rebounds per game.

Baylor picked up its first conference win this weekend, defeating Texas 69-60. The Bears are now 11-4 overall, 1-2 in the Big 12 and 4-4 against the spread. The Bears are scoring 78.3 points per game while allowing 66.4 per contest. Manu Lecomte is leading Baylor with 16.8 points per game while Jo Lual-Acuil Jr. is adding 16.1 points and 9.8 rebounds per contest.

Bet on Baylor vs. West Virginia

West Virginia has won and covered in three of its last four meetings with Baylor, and I expect another win and cover for the Mountaineers today as well. Baylor has struggled mightily on the road, averaging just 58 points per game. The Bears will need much more than that against WVU. Look for the Mountaineers to use their press effectively and keep Baylor from scoring much. The public betting is WVU as well tonight.
