Point Spread: +12½/-110 Long Beach State
The confidence for these Baylor players has to be at a season low. The Bears have lost 9 of their last 13 games. Long Beach State has had a slightly better finish to their regular season winning 8 of their last 13 games. They are coming off a tough loss to UC-Irvine. You should always play on road underdogs of 10 to 19.5 points like Long Beach State when they are off an upset loss as a favorite, playing only their 3rd game in a week. This system is 134-83 (62%) since 1997. Baylor has not been very consistent in recent years. They are 3-12 ATS after covering two of their last three games over the last two seasons. Long Beach State is playing well even though they lost in their last game. They have averaged just under 50% shooting from the field in their last two games and they have held their opponents to under 30 rebounds while collecting an average of 38.5 of their own. Baylor is coming off a 36.7% shooting performance against Oklahoma State and they have allowed over 45% shooting in two of their last three games. This double digit line is too many points for such an inconsistent Baylor team to cover against Long Beach State.
