Colgate Has Some Confidence

Colgate might be a 14 seed but they have a ton of confidence heading into this game. In the last game against Lehigh, Colgate scored 74 points while the defense gave up 55 points. Brady Cummins had a strong game putting up 19 points. Colgate on the season is averaging 71.5 points while their defense is giving up 63.2 points pr game. The defense is going to need to be good in this game or it could be a long game. Braeden Smith is averaging 12.5 points while shooting 39.3 percent from the field. 

Baylor Slumped to End Season

Baylor struggled to end the season losing two of three games. In the last game against Iowa State, Baylor scored only 62 points and they ended up losing by 14 points. Jalen Bridgeswas the top player putting up 20 points and 12 rebounds. Baylor did beat the likes of TCU, Kansas, Texas, and Cincinnati late in the campaign. Baylor on the season is averaging 80.5 points while their defense is giving up 71.2 points per game. The Baylor is a strong offensive team and they are going to need the offense to run up the score in this game. Ja’Kobe Walter has been the top player averaging 14.2 points while shooting 37.3 percent from the field and 34 percent from behind the three point line.

Colgate vs Baylor Betting Prediction

Baylor is going to have no issue getting the job done here. Baylor is averaging 80.5 points and they are going to take away the Colgate confidence early in this game. Look for Baylor to score at least 80 points here and the Coglate offense won’t be good here. This game is going to get out of hand early. It wouldn’t shock me if Baylor scored under 50 points. Back Baylor against the spread. Baylor is a massive favorite to go through, where they should meet the winner of the New Mexico vs. Clemson game.
