Baylor Bears vs. Texas Longhorns NCAA Online Betting Picks
Posted by: Mike Davis
The Texas Longhorns are picking up fans each weekend. After kicking off the 2018 NCAA online betting season with a 34-29 loss to Maryland, Texas bounced back by posting a 5-game win streak. Most impressive of which was their 48-45 road upset of the Sooners this past weekend. Now Texas is prepared to host the unranked Baylor Bears this weekend. Although the Bears are not nationally ranked, they are not to be taken lightly. Let’s check on the NCAA sportsbook odds to get an idea of what we can expect out of this weekend’s matchup.

NCAA Online Betting Odds:
The Bears crawl into this weekend’s action sporting a respectable 4-2 record. In addition, the Bears wield a 2-1 record in Big 12 play this season. That conference record ranks Baylor as the 3rd best conference in the Big 12. Coming off a 37-34 triumph over Kansas State, the Bears are hopeful they can use this momentum to get an upset over Texas this weekend. However, considering that the Bears were killed by Oklahoma 66-33, the same Oklahoma that Texas upset this past weekend, it’s clear that the program will have their hands full this weekend. Furthermore, Baylor is 0-3 in their last 3 meetings against Texas. Clearly they’ve had some struggles against the Longhorns and this Saturday’s matchup will be no different.
Players to Watch: Charlie Brewer (1,558 passing yards, 9 TD, 2 INT), JaMycal Hasty (285 rushing yards, 3 TD, 5.9 AVG), and Jalen Hurd (550 receiving yards, 3 TD, 42 REC).
The Longhorns enter this weekend’s action proudly sporting a 5-1 record after picking up their biggest win of the season this past Saturday. In addition to their 5-1 record, Texas has an unblemished 3-0 record in Big 12 play this season. Surprisingly, this pegs them alongside West Virginia as the best program in the conference. Ultimately Texas and West Virginia will settle this debate three weeks from now when the Longhorns travel to face the Mountaineers on the road. Looking over the numbers, it’s clear that Texas will have an advantage this weekend. Right now they’re putting up 32.0 while giving up24.0. On the other hand, the Bears are scoring 35.8 while allotting 32.3. With a better defense, and an equally dynamic offense, we should expect Texas to coast to an easy win this weekend.
Players to Watch: Sam Ehlinger (1,499 passing yards, 11 TD, 2 INT), Tre Watson (299 rushing yards, 1 TD, 3.9 AVG), and Lil’Jordan Humphrey (535 receiving yards, 4 TD, 35 REC).
