West Virginia vs. Baylor Free Pick
No. 2 Baylor will once again put its undefeated record on the line when it hosts West Virginia at 12:00PM ET today.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Mybookie.ag, the Bears are 20-point home favorites versus the Mountaineers while the total currently sits at 78 points. Baylor enters play with a 5-0 record and is 3-1-1 against the spread, while the Mountaineers are 3-2 overall and 2-3 at the betting window.
Led by quarterback Seth Russell, receiver Corey Coleman and running back Shock Linwood, Baylor ranks first in total yards (725), first in points scored (64.2) and second in rushing yards (357.6) per game nationally. They'll face a decent West Virginia defense (41st nationally in total yards allowed per game), but why should anyone expect that Baylor's offense will be slowed today?
The over is 20-5-1 in the Bears' last 26 games after allowed less than 170 yards passing in their previous game. The over is also 12-3 in their last 15 home games versus a team with a winning road record and 4-1 in their last five games coming off a win. The Mountaineers are more than capable of putting up points themselves (31st nationally with 36.0 points per game), so look for the combined score to sail over the total.
