Posted by: Hilbert Mayer
West Virginia Mountaineers vs Baylor Bears 10/31/2019 – The undefeated Baylor Bears enter this Big 12 conference battle as heavy favorites by sports betting online. West Virginia seems to have Baylor’s number, winning their last two meetings. The Mountaineers defeated them last season and won again when they last played in Waco. However, bet online sportsbook sees this as a motivating factor for the Bears. With an undefeated record, nothing could be sweeter for the Bears than to add the Mountaineers to that list. Both are coming off a bye week and are expected to enter this game with some adjustments.

West Virginia Mountaineers
After getting blown out by Oklahoma in their last assignment, the West Virginia Mountaineers had enough time to address their shortcomings. They are coming off a bye week and won the last two battles with the Baylor Bears. If the trend continues, they should put an end to their three-game losing skid. Unfortunately, oddsmakers do not see it that way. Part of that is because of their poor offense. The only bright spot so far is their passing game but it may take much more than that. Worse, their defense also leaves a lot to be desired. They allow opponents an average of 409 yards per game.
Players to watch: A. Kendall QB 141 CMP 222 ATT 1,429 YDS 63.5 CMP% 6.4 AVG 51 LNG 11 TD 7 INT; K. McKoy RB 66 ATT 188 YDS 2.8 AVG 237 LNG; L. Brown RB 51 ATT 184 YDS 2.8 AVG 23 LNG; T.J. Simmons WR 31 REC 409 YDS 13.2 AVG 44 LNG; S. James WR 41 REC 388 YDS 9.5 AVG 51 LNG
With an undefeated record, the only way the Baylor Bears can lose this one is if they play bad enough. Seeing however how the West Virginia Mountaineers have played poorly on both ends, it may take an extreme amount of luck to see Baylor drop this one. Like the Mountaineers, they too are coming off a bye week. This allowed them to regroup and give ailing players time to recover. The Bears have shown exemplary defense, averaging 38.9 points per game. Their defense is good although they have the tendency to be complacent. They allow the opposition just 19.1 points per game but that increases especially against Big 12 teams.
Players to watch: C. Brewer QB 130 CMP 196 ATT 1,866 YDS 66.3 CMP% 9.5 AVG 78 LNG 12 TD 3 INT; J. Lovett RB 65 ATT 446 YDS 6.9 AVG 46 LNG; J. Hasty RB 56 ATT 362 YDS 6.5 AVG 73 LNG; D. Mims WR 56 REC 362 YDS 6.5 AVG 73 LNG; T. Thornton WR 26 REC 507 YDS 19.5 AVG 78 LNG
