NCAAB Betting Preview: 

Free picks and predictions on this March Madness game between Houston vs Baylor. This big time game tipping off April 3, 2021 at 5:15pm at the Lucus Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. The current DraftKings odds have Baylor as a -5 point favorite and the total currently at 134.5 points.

The #2 seeded Houston Cougars come into this game red hot after getting their huge Elite 8 win on Monday against the Oregon State Beavers, 67-61. The Cougars shot just 32% from the field in that game, but managed to keep the lead the whole game from half of their total points coming from 3-pointers along with them out rebounding Oregon State 41 to 29. Houston is the #1 team in the nation on the offensive glass, but the Bears are right behind them at the 6th spot. Houston has the talent to stay with Baylor and keep this a close matchup and that’s why oddsmakers only have this battle as a -5 point spread.

The Cougars on the road this season are 57th in the nation, scoring an average of 72.3 points per game and currently have the second best defense in the country that only gives up an average of 60 points per game.

Houston is 14-6 against the spread in their last 20 games and the total has gone under in 5 of the Cougars last 6 games against an opponent in the Big 12 conference.

The #1 seeded Baylor Bears got their 3-pointer mojo back in their Elite Eight matchup, getting the 81-72 win over the Arkansas Razorbacks. Baylor will be able to continue making their 3-pointers and the Bears trio, Macio Teague, Davion Mitchell and Jared Butler will most likely be more efficient than Houston’s.

The Bears on the road this season have the tenth best offense in the nation, scoring an average of 79.6 points per game. Defensively they give up an average of 66.6 points per game.

Baylor is 18-2 straight up in their last 20 games and the total has gone over in 13 of the Bears last 16 games when playing as the favorite.

In this Houston vs Baylor Final Four game, we’re rolling with Baylor First Half -2.5 points at the -113 price.
