Bet Missouri Baylor – Missouri, Baylor Lock Horns In Five-Star Showdown

Posted by Washington Tucker on 2/6/2014 10:06:41 PM

The Big 12’s best teams, one could very legitimately say, are the Missouri Tigers and the Baylor Bears. They’ll meet this weekend in the Lone Star State with seeding position on the line.

Why Missouri Will Win

When you do your homework and assess your sports bet on this game, you have to realize that the Missouri Tigers have many of the same players they did last season. Kim English, Marcus Denmon, and Company are extremely quick, agile and multitalented. The Tigers can put a starting five on the floor who can play an all-court game with energy and an aggressive mindset. Missouri possesses interchangeable parts and a deep bench, two clear and convincing reasons why it can outrun and outlast opponents. First-year coach Frank Haith has come from Miami (Florida) and not missed a beat. The Tigers have the look of a very confident team, one that is older and wiser than it was last season.
The veteran identity of this Mizzou roster, plus the stability it enjoys at the point, gives the Tigers a leg up on most teams in the Big 12. If anyone can give Baylor its first home loss of the 2012 season, it’s Missouri. Baylor has played a number of very close games so far this season, so it’s not as though one should see this game as a mismatch; it’s anything but. One should anticipate an even-steven fight to the finish line, and Missouri’s depth could very well carry the day.

Why Baylor Will Win

The college basketball betting experts who are beginning to sink their teeth into the Big 12 season are marveling at the portfolio produced in Waco, Texas. Coach Scott Drew’s team didn’t even make the Big Dance last season after making an Elite Eight run in the 2010 NCAA Tournament. However, if you tried to project the 2012 NCAA Tournament, Baylor would surely be a No. 1 seed at this point in time. That’s all you really need to say about Baylor’s competitive chops. The Bears have a do-everything athlete and meal ticket in the person of Perry Jones III who can get a big bucket, rebound, or blocked shot in crucial situations.
They have a fearless guard in the form of Pierre Jackson who is willing to take the big shot and provide lock-down defense on the perimeter. Quincy Acy is a shot blocker and rebounder near the rim, and Brady Heslip is a three-point shooting specialist. These defined roles and collected components give Baylor ballast and balance, and that’s why the Bears are in the top five of the national rankings, fully intent on winning the Big 12 and snaring other prizes on the road to March Madness. Missouri got whacked at Kansas State a week ago; Baylor can surely do the same thing to the Tigers.

Who Will Win

It’s not easy to pick a winner in this game, but since Baylor hasn’t lost at home yet this season, it’s ultimately easier to choose the Bears over the Tigers.
