The McNeese Cowboys and the Baylor Bears meet in college basketball action from the Ferrell Center on Wednesday.

The McNeese Cowboys will hope to build on a 66-57 win over Lamar last time out. Christian Shumate leads the Cowboys in scoring and rebounding, averaging a double-double per game with 12.8 PPG and 10.6 RPG while Trae English has 10.8 PPG with a team-high 3 APG to leads the Cowboys in assists and Johnathan Massie has 10.2 PPG to cap off the trio of double-digit scorers for McNeese so far this season. As a team, McNeese is averaging 72.6 PPG on 43.8% shooting from the field, 32.8% from three and 59.7% from the foul line this season.

The Baylor Bears will be out to build on their 80-75 win over UCLA in their last game. LJ Cryer leads the Bears in scoring with 18 PPG while Adam Flagler has 17.8 PPG along with a team-high 6.8 APG to lead the Bears in the assist department. Keyonte George has 14.4 PPG with 4 RPG and 5 APG and Jalen Bridges has 10 PPG to cap off the group of double-digit scorers for Baylor so far this season. Caleb Lohner also has a team-high 5.8 RPG to lead the Bears on the glass this season. As a team, Baylor is averaging 91.6 PPG on 49.5% shooting from the field, 38.2% from three and 72.7% from the foul line this season.

McNeese is 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games following a win and 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 road games against a team with a winning home record while the over is 8-2 in their last 10 games following a win. Baylor is 9-2-1 ATS in their last 12 Wednesday games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games following an ATS win while the over is 6-0 in their last 6 games overall.

I get the case to be made for an underdog in some spots but this spot is not one of them. The Cowboys are simply overmatched here as you have a national champion caliber Baylor team on the other side while the Cowboys are one of the worst teams in the country according to KenPom. This one should be a Baylor blowout.
