Handicapper: David Luang
Pick: Baylor Bears +1.5
This SEC-Big 12 challenge game will see the number one team in the country, the Baylor Bears, face a tough road test when they travel to Gainesville to take on the Florida Gators. Baylor hasn’t lost a game since Nov. 8 and the Bears enter this matchup riding an impressive 15-game winning streak. Meanwhile, Florida looks to bounce back after a tough two point loss on the road vs. LSU, 84-82.
After defeating Oklahoma, Baylor has now won 15 games in a row with their only loss against Washington in the second game of the year. Baylor failed to cover the -10.5 point spread vs. Oklahoma but they are 5-1 ATS the last 6 games. Baylor’s offense is averaging 72.2 points per game but on the road they have averaged only 66.3 PPG. J and ared Butler leads this team in scoring, averaging 16.1 points per game and is one of only two players averaging more than 10 points per game. Baylor’s two biggest strengths on offense are taking care of the basketball and generating second-chance points.
Florida snapped a two-game win streak with a tough 84-82 loss on the road against LSU on Tuesday. Florida is averaging 74 points per game this year, however, getting stops on the defensive end has been a different kind of challenge altogether for the Gators. The Gators’ offense, meanwhile, can keep up with Baylor, considering the talent that they have. Kerry Blackshear Jr is the heart and soul of this Florida team and is leading them in scoring (14.8 PPG) and 8.7 RPG.
This will be a tightly contested game despite the rankings. Florida’s defense is good and they will generate enough offense to keep it close. Florida will have to show better effort in rebounding, especially against Baylor, which is feeding off from its ability to dominate the boards. Baylor’s defense has been able to put the clamps down all season and they force teams to play their brand of basketball. In the end, Baylor’s hustle and rebounding advantage will win this game for their sixteenth straight victory.
