Oregon vs. Baylor Prediction
Will the Baylor Bears pull off the small upset at home today at 3:30PM ET when they host the Oregon Ducks in non-conference play?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Bears are 1-point home underdogs for tonight's game against the Ducks while the over/under currently sits at 154.5 points. Some books have started to move Baylor to a small home favorite while others have kept the Bears at +1, so shop around for the best line.
OREGON KEY TRENDS: The Ducks are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games versus Big 12 opponents and are 12-5 at the betting window in their last 17 games coming off a failed cover in their previous game. They're also 9-4 against the spread in their last 13 games when taking on an opponent with a winning percentage that is above .600.
BAYLOR KEY TRENDS: The Bears are just 6-13 against the spread in their last 19 games coming off a win and are 1-10 against the number in their last 11 non-conference games. They're also 0-4 at the betting window in their last four home games dating back to last season.
OUR PREDICTION: This is a revenge spot for the Bears, who were beaten 74-67 by the Ducks a year ago. Baylor lost three starters from last year's squad, which went 22-12, but newcomers Jo-Laual-Acuil and Manu Lecomte show plenty of promise, while preseason all-Big 12 selection Jonathan Motley will make his season debut today after being suspended in Baylor's first game. Oregon won't have the services of forward Dillon Brooks, who remains out while recovering from surgery on his left foot.
