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.
The Bears continue to dominate their opponents, which is why they jumped Gonzaga in the latest poll. Baylor has now won 15 games in a row with their only lost coming against Washington in the second game of the year. They most recently had a tough game with Oklahoma and won 61-57.
This Baylor offense is not necessarily the best, only averaging 72.2 points per game. Baylor has only played three true road games, in which they are averaging 66.3 points per game.
The Bears have one main guy who will look to be the biggest threat in this game. Jared Butler leads this team in scoring, averaging 16.1 points per game. MaCio Teague is the only other guy who average more than 10 points per game at 13.6. They do have another role player in Freddie Gillespie, who averages 9.9 points per game and 9.3 rebounds per game.
Now, there is no question that the Bears have a top scoring defense. They are allowing 58.5 points per game, ranking 6th. Teams are shooting just 38% from the field against them, which ranks 17th.
Even in road games, the Bears defense has not dropped off, allowing 58.3 points per game. There is nothing to suggest their defense will fall apart, even in an environment like Florida. I mean they held Jayhawks to 55 points in Kansas, so they should have success here.
The Gators suffered a tough loss on the road against LSU this past week and will be looking for a monster win to improve their resume. As of right now, they are probably a tournament team, but they cannot afford a ton of losses because they still have a ton of conference games to go through.
Florida is averaging 74 points per game this year, which does not exactly stack up well compared to the rest of the country. They do perform slightly better at home, averaging 76.2 points per game.
Kerry Blackshear Jr is the heart and soul of this Florida team and is leading them is scoring by average 14.8 points per game. He also averages 8.7 rebounds, leading the team in this category as well.
Three other guys average at least 10 points per game, which shows that Florida has plenty of scoring options. Most notably, Keyontae Johnson and Noah Locke both had 16 points in the game against LSU.
The Florida defense is also solid, allowing just 66.3 points per game. Their biggest strength is defending the three-point line, allowing teams to shoot just 29.5%.
The Gators held the Tigers to 14.3% from deep range, but they shot 47.5% from the field and that ended up being the difference.
CBB Betting Trends:
- BAY are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 road games.
- FLA are 5-15 ATS in their last 20 home games.
Free Baylor Bears vs. Florida Gators NCAAB Prediction:
I look for the Baylor defense to be too much for the Gators and the Bears continue to hold the number one ranking in the country.
