The Northwestern State Demons and Baylor Bears face off on Tuesday in a college basketball showdown at Ferrell Center. When these two teams faced off in 2015 it was Baylor that won 75-62. 

Northwestern State comes into this game with a 3-10 record overall and they have gone 4-6 against the spread. In the last game against Texas A&M they scored only 61 points while their defense gave up 80 points. Three games ago against LSU the offense could only manage 49 points. The Demons are averaging 69.5 points while their defense is giving up 79.7 points per game. Kendal Coleman has been the top player for the Demons are averaging 15.3 points while shooting 58.9 percent from the field.

On the other side of this matchup is the Baylor Bears who sit with an 11-0 record and they have gone 8-2-1 against the spread. In the last game against Alcorn State the offense scored 94 points and that led to the easy blowout victory. Two games ago against Oregon, Baylor won 78-70. Baylor is averaging 81.9 points while their defense is giving up 55.8 points per game. LJ Cryer has been the best player for Baylor averaging 13.6 points while shooting 50.5 percent from the field and 45.6 percent from behind the three point line. There are three different players who are averaging at least 11.5 points per game.

Northwestern State is 1-8-1 against the spread in their last 10 road games against a team with a winning home record. Northwestern State is 1-5 against the spread in their last six road games. The over is 4-1 in Baylor’s last five games played on Tuesday. The under is 4-1 in Baylor’s last five games following a straight up win of more than 20 points. 

Baylor is an elite offensive team, but Northwestern State can also score, and I expect the pace of this game is going to be quick. Look for both offenses to run up the score, and this game is going to go over the total. In terms of the side I do believe Northwestern State will score enough to keep this game close.
