West Virginia



Baylor -5.5 Point Spread

Under 130 Game Totals

Against The Spread Pick

The Mountaineers come into this game with a huge opportunity to improve their resume. They are pretty much a lock, but having now lost two games in a row, the Mountaineers need to play a good game to build their confidence. They most recently lost to Kansas 58-49, where they just could not score the basketball. This game will not be much better as Baylor have a top defense as well. On the other side, Baylor continues to show why they are the umber one team in the country. They did not exactly put on a show against Texas, but their defense held them to 45 points, which allowed them to win and cover. West Virginia’s offensive struggles are the reason why I cannot back them in this spot. That being said, I look for the Bears to get another decisive win at home and to cover against the Mountaineers.

Over Under Pick

Just by looking at these teams, the under is what you will probably be looking to bet. The Bears allow just 55.9 points per game at home, while the Mountaineers give up 66.2 points on the road. We know that neither side are going to exactly score at a high level, so expect defense to play a massive role. With a total set so low, I can only recommend a small play on the under. That being because if one team gets hot, it could really ruin an under. This is more of a stay away game for me, but the under would be my play.
