Baylor +1.5 vs. Auburn
Blog Picks (15-16-1) (1 Win in a Row)
Baylor is undergoing a significant transformation this season, retaining just one starter from the previous year. However, they’ve bolstered their roster with a promising influx of talent, primarily through the transfer portal, and have also secured a highly touted recruiting class headlined by Top 10 prospect Ja’Kobe Walter. The return of Langston Love, Jalen Bridges, and Jonathan Tchamwa Tchatchoua provides valuable experience and continuity.
In addition to their existing assets, the Bears made an impactful acquisition in the form of RayJ Dennis, a transfer from Toledo who was the second-highest scorer in the MAC last season, averaging an impressive 19.5 points per game. This infusion of talent and depth positions Baylor as a formidable force to be reckoned with.
As for the Auburn Tigers, they face some uncertainties with their two top returning players, Aden Holloway and Johni Broome, nursing minor injuries as the season begins. Nevertheless, both are expected to take the court and contribute to the team. The Tigers, however, had to bid farewell to their two standout guards, Wendell Green Jr. and Allen Flanigan, leaving a void in their lineup.
Given the circumstances, the opportunity to bet on Baylor, especially getting 1.5-points, feels like an enticing proposition, even on a neutral court. The Bears’ blend of seasoned returnees and promising newcomers positions them favorably in this matchup.
