The Line: Baylor Bears +4 -- Over/Under:
The Duke Blue Devils and the Baylor Bears will be meeting up at McLane Stadium on Saturday in college football activity.
Duke enters this game feeling good at 2-0 so far. The Devils took out Army 34-14 in their opener, then made it two in a row with a trip to Northwestern this past Saturday and a 21-7 victory.
Duke QB Daniel Jones is sitting on 389 yards with four TDs so far, while Brittain Brown leads the rush on 109 yards and a TD. Johnathan Lloyd is the leading Blue Devils receiver on 126 yards and one TD.
As for Baylor, they’re sitting on a 2-0 record as well. The Bears started things out with a 55-27 win over Abilene Christian, then kept it going with a 37-20 win over UTSA on the road back on Saturday.
Charlie Brewer leads the Bears at QB, and he’s got 466 yards, three TDs and a pick so far. John Lovett is the top Baylor rusher on 162 yards and three scores, while Denzel Mims has 213 yards and a TD from 11 catches.
The Devils are 4-0 ATS in their last four versus a team with a winning record and 5-0 ATS in their last five overall. Duke is 6-1 ATS in their last seven in September and 20-5-1 ATS in their last 26 non-conference games.
Meanwhile, the Bears are 1-3-1 ATS in the last five games overall and 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 games in September. Baylor is 0-4 ATS in the last four home games and 0-4-1 ATS in their last five non-conference games.
All things considered, this should be a pretty evenly-matched game. Both these teams have shown some solid depth and gotten contributions from a lot of offensive sources. Baylor in particular seems to have a lot of weapons this season, and it will be interesting to see what they can do here. I’m going Bears in what should be a fun game to watch.
