The Baylor Bears and Arizona State Sun Devils face off on Wednesday in a college basketball showdown in the Battle of the Atlantis at Imperial Arena.
Baylor comes into this game with a 4-0 record and they have gone 3-1 against the spread. In the last game against Stanford, Baylor’s offense was elite putting up 86 points and the defense gave up only 48 points, and that led to the blowout victory. Baylor is averaging 88.5 points while their defense is giving up 53.8 points per game. Guard LJ Cryer has been the best player for Baylor averaging 18.5 points while shooting 63 percent from the field and 53.8 percent from behind the three point line. There are five different players who are averaging at least 10 points per game.
On the other side of this matchup is the Arizona State Sun Devils who sit with a 2-2 record overall and they have gone 1-3 against the spread. The under has also hit in all four of their games so far this season. In the last game against San Diego State they were competitive, but they were defeated by two points. Arizona State is averaging 69 points while their defense is giving up 6.5 points per game. Forward Kimani Lawrence has been the top player for Arizona State averaging 16 points while shooting 64.3 percent from the field. In this game if Arizona State wants any chance the offense is going to need to be a lot better.
Baylor is 6-0 against the spread in their last six games following an against the spread loss. The Bears are 5-0 against the spread in their last five neutral site games. The under is 4-0 in Arizona State’s last four games overall. The under is 6-0 in Baylor’s last 6 games after allowing less than 50 points in their previous game.
Baylor just blew out Stanford, and although Arizona State might be a little better than the Cardinal team, I don’t think they are a whole lot better. In this game, Arizona State is going to struggle to score, and Baylor is going to win this game in blowout fashion. Back Baylor to win this game and cover the spread.
