The Baylor Bears and the Central Arkansas Bears face off on Tuesday as they tip off the 2019-2020 Men’s College Basketball season.

The Baylor Bears look to be in a good position for this season and start the year ranked 16 in the AP Top 25 and 18 in the Coaches Poll. While Scott Drew’s Bears lose Makai Mason from last year’s team and Mario Kegler being suspended from the team and leaving the program in September, they are still loaded with talent. Tristan Clark returns after missing half of last season and he averaged 14.3 points and 6.2 rebounds per game but he geets plenty of help as Devante Bandoo looks ready for an increased role. Baylor’s Guards are led by Jared Butler who averaged 10.2 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 2.7 assists per game. I don’t expect Baylor to get much of a test here and we will likely see almost the entire bench get some action.

The Central Arkansas Bears are coming off of a 14-19 season, 8-10 in the Southland Conference, and return several starters from last year’s team. Central Arkansas have high hopes in the Southland but out of conference they have scheduled up with this game against Baylor as well as games against Duke, Wichita State, and Marquette. Center Hayden Koval and Guard DeAndre Jones lead the Bears while Forward Eddie Kayouloud and Guards Khaleem Bennett and Rylan Bergersen round out the starting five. Central Arkansas has a chance of making some noise in the Southland but these out of conference games could be tough on their egos.

Baylor is 5-0 against the spread in their last five non-conference games, 0-5-1 against the spread in their last six home games, and 3-8-2 against the spread in their last 13 games. Central Arkansas is 4-9 against the spread on their last 13 games and 6-2 against the spread in their last 8 non-conference games.

I just don't see Central Arkansas being able to hang in this one and while Baylor has gotten sloppy at times over the years, I seee them being way too talented.
