How To Bet On Education Holiday Bowl – Baylor Turns in Another Upset in Education Bowl

Baylor Bears @ UCLA Bruins (17) – Thursday December 27, 2012 9:45PM EST

The betting sites have been unable to figure out the Baylor Bears all season long. The Bears would go through long stretches of being unable to do anything right, and then turn around to deliver a devastating and convincing loss to a team that is ranked number one in the country. By all accounts, this game should be a blowout of epic proportions by the UCLA Bruins. But the Bruins do not match up well against Baylor in several key areas. One of those key areas is an ability to perform in big games.

The college football betting world was stunned at the repeated victories over ranked teams that the UCLA Bruins kept racking up all season long. Despite a 9-4 record, UCLA was able to claw itself into the top 20 and gain the status of a BCS ranked team. But two consecutive losses to the Stanford Cardinal at the end of the season cost UCLA any chance at a more prestigious bowl game. But it is that tenacity that UCLA showed in the first part of the season that it hopes to call on when it plays Baylor in the Education Holiday Bowl.

Why Baylor Will Win

How Baylor was unable to win more games during the course of the season is a complete mystery. The sportsbook experts note that Baylor boasts a top 10 offense that has been able to put up points on just about every defense in the country. Perhaps Baylor’s troubles are best explained by its 70-63 week four loss to West Virginia. While the Baylor offense is capable of putting up the points, the defense has had problems all season keeping the other team off the scoreboard. If Baylor’s defense can put up one good effort in this game, then this is a game the Bears can win.

Why UCLA Will Win

What makes UCLA to potent is how balanced the team is. It has a good offense and a good defense. Those two units come together to create a team that can stand toe to toe with almost any team in the country. But if UCLA is not hitting on all cylinders, then it has a hard time winning games. As long as UCLA can stick to its game plan in this game, then it should be able to compete.

The Bottom Line

The Bears have nothing to prove and nothing to lose in this game. That makes Baylor very dangerous. UCLA has a game plan it has used to beat teams that are better than Baylor, but there are very few teams with the kind of heart that Baylor has. This will be a high scoring game with a lot of exciting plays. The end result will be a Baylor win.

Pick: Baylor
