According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Bears are 36.5-point road favorites versus the Mustangs, while the over/under is currently sitting at 73.5 points. Baylor had opened as 20-point favorites in the spread before the number skyrocketed, while the total opened at 74 before slightly dropping.

Junior quarterback Seth Russell will attempt to fill the shoes of Bryce Petty, who was drafted by the Jets this past April. Russell was 48-of-85 for 804 yards and eight touchdowns in eight games last year for Baylor and leads an offense that averaged 581.5 yards and 48.2 points per game last year behind Petty. SMU doesn't stand much of a chance tonight.

The Bears are 5-0-1 against the spread in their last six games in September while the Mustangs are 0-8 ATS in their last eight non-conference games. Baylor is also 22-9-1 ATS in its last 32 games overall while SMU is just 1-5 ATS in its last six home games.
