Baylor vs. Vanderbilt
– This isn’t a home game for Baylor, but for what it’s worth, there will be fans in the stands. That won’t make a difference tow. battle-hardened Vanderbilt team.
– It’ll be really, really tempting to go with Baylor. Don’t. This Bear team lost four games in five before showing up against a Texas Tech team without a quarterback. Vanderbilt won three of its last four, and it’s extremely fired up to be in this.
– The over is the big play. The 55.5 is low because investors probably freaked out by Baylor’s 14 points against Iowa State and the 16-9 loss the week later in mid-November. Don’t worry about it – Baylor games have blasted the 55.5 in five of the last eight, and Vandy should be good for close to 40 points.
