Why Bet on Baylor?

Baylor (4-0) hasn’t played since a 99-61 blowout of Kansas City on Nov. 14. After seeing a streak of 1,032 consecutive games with at least one made 3-pointer snapped two days earlier against Gardner-Webb, the No. 13 Bears knocked down 13-of-23 treys in the blowout of the Roos. Baylor was 0-for-9 from outside the arc in last Sunday’s 77-62 win over Gardner-Webb, but Jalen Bridges knocked one down just 67 seconds into the first half.

Jayden Nunn scored 25 points and true freshman Ja’Kobe Walter had 23, with both making four 3-pointers overall. Nunn, the junior transfer guard from VCU, scored 14 points in a row during a 5 1/2-minute stretch of the first half, which Walter ended by scoring the last seven points for Baylor. The Bears never trailed, led by 18 at the break and the final margin was the largest when playing their fourth game in eight days to open the season. The Bears won four games in eight days to start a season for the first time since 1992-93. The Kansas City win marked the first game with two 20-point scorers for BU since Adam Flagler and Keyonte George did it at Kansas 2/18/23.

Walter is averaging 18 points per game through his first four games of the season, earning Big 12 Player of the Week and NABC Player of the Week honors. Walter is the first freshman in program history to collect Big 12 Player of the Week honors. Jalen Bridges has 469 rebounds in his career and is 177 points away from 1,000 for his career (823). Bridges enters Wednesday one game shy of 100 for his career (99). Jonathan Tchamwa Tchatchoua played in his 100th career game against Kansas City after making his first start at BU in the season-opener against Auburn. Tchatchoua is 42 points away from 500 in his Baylor career (458).

Baylor has taken a lead in 156-consecutive games (last wire-to-wire loss Dec. 1, 2018 at Wichita State). BU has won 82-straight when shooting a higher percentage than its opponent (last loss March 2, 2019 at K-State). Baylor has won 46-straight games when shooting 50% or higher (last loss March 18, 2018 vs. Mississippi State).

Baylor is 40-13 in regular-season tournaments during the Scott Drew era, including titles in 4 of the last 5 tournaments. BU has won 13 of its last 14 regular-season neutral-site contests. Baylor is 81-13 vs. unranked teams over the last four seasons (.862%).

BU is 82-20 over the last three-plus seasons, tied for the nation’s best record by a Power-6 team in that span. Baylor has built leads of 10+ points in 54 of 76 games since the start of the 2021 NCAA Tournament (51-3 record). Over the last 4 seasons, Baylor is 84-10 when leading at the half and 105-13 when taking a 2nd-half lead.

Why Bet on Oregon State?

Not much was expected for Oregon State this season so the 3-1 record is a solid surprise, although the Beavers were routed 84-63 by Nebraska on Saturday in South Dakota. Sam Hoiberg’s 3-pointer with 13:14 left before halftime gave Nebraska a 13-11 lead and they never trailed again. Nebraska went to the break leading 44-24 and led by double figures throughout the second half.

Jordan Pope led the Beavers with 25 points on 8-for-12 shooting from the floor. Tyler Bilodeau finished in double-figures for the seventh-straight games, as he put up 15 points and seven rebounds. Justin Rochelin came through with eight points before fouling out. Michael Rataj made his season debut, playing limited minutes in his return from injury. He captained the German U-20 team at this summer’s FIBA European U20 Championships. Rataj averaged 11.6 points per game and shot 47.1 percent at the event and finished the 2022-23 season third among Pac-12 freshmen in rebounds per game and 10th in points per game.

Pope and Bilodeau have been in double-figures in all four of the Beavers’ games this season. Pope has scored 25 points in back-to-back games, the first Beaver to do so since Tres Tinkle went for 26 points against Portland State and Arkansas-Pine Bluff in 2019. Pope is first among Pac-12 sophomores in scoring, while Bilodeau is third. Pope was named to the Preseason All-Pac-12 Second Team.

Bilodeau has scored in double-figures in seven-straight games dating back to last season and has at least 11 points and seven rebounds in every game this season. He is the only current Oregon State player with a collegiate double-double and has shot 50 percent or better from the floor in seven of his last 10 games

Oregon State returns a six-player sophomore class, which combined for 64 games started and averaged a combined 33 points per game last season. The Beavers were one of seven teams in the nation last season with three or more freshmen averaging 6.0 points or more per game. Oregon State returns 62.5 percent of its minutes played from last season, the third highest total in the Pac-12.

The Beavers welcome four new scholarship players to this year’s squad – freshmen Gavin Marrs, Thomas Ndong and DaJohn Craig, along with junior-college transfer Nate Meithof. Meithof is expected to miss the season due to injury. The Beavers have held opponents to 34.6 percent shooting in the first half of games this season.
