Baylor Bears 2021-22 Season
The Baylor Bears entered the 2021-22 season still riding high from the program's first ever NCAA National Championship. Despite their title winning season in 2020-21, though, the Bears were only ranked #8 in the preseason AP Poll. The sentiment outside of the team itself was that the Bears would be undermanned this season after graduating four of the five starts from their National Championship roster. Well, the Bears had other things in mind as they opened the season on a 15 game win streak, which included a win over Villanova where the Wildcats only managed to score 36 points. The Bears have hit a few roadblocks since then with losses to Texas Tech, Oklahoma State, Alabama, and Kansas, but they remain firmly in the picture for winning the Big 12 regular season title.
The Bears are currently ranked #7 in the polls and have multiple ranked opponents left on their regular season schedule. A string of wins against tough competition would go a long way for Baylor's NCAA Tournament seeding come March. All eyes will be on the Baylor Bears in the coming weeks to see if they can continue a strong title defense season and make their way back to the Final Four in 2022.
Take a look at our college basketball odds to see how the Bears fare in the coming weeks.
Betting on the Baylor Bears
The Baylor Bears have some tough matchups remaining in the season, so be sure to pay close attention to the odds. Here are some of the popular bet types that you can make on the Bears if you live in a legal sports betting state.
- Point Spread
- Futures Odds
A moneyline bet requires a bettor to correctly pick the winner of the game. If you pick the winner of the game correctly, you will win the bet. How much you win will be determined by your wager amount and the associated moneyline for the team you bet on. Here's an example using a recent Baylor game against Texas
- Baylor -245 moneyline
- Texas +197 moneyline
Baylor is the team favored to win this game, which is indicated by the minus sign (-) next to their moneyline. Texas is the underdog denoted by the plus sign (+) next to their moneyline. The moneyline number signifies the potential payout for each team. Someone betting on Baylor would have to bet $245 to win $100 whereas a bettor would win $197 with a wager of $100 on Texas.
Baylor Point Spread
Users can also place a point spread wager on the Baylor Bears. This requires a bettor to correctly select the margin of victory by a particular team, rather than simply who wins. Here's the same Baylor vs. Texas matchup as an example.
- Baylor -5.5 (-112)
- Texas +5.5 (-109)
Oddsmakers set a margin of victory total known as the spread. In this game, Baylor has to win by 6 or more points to beat this spread and Texas either has to win the game outright or lose by 5 points or less to beat the spread. Point spreads also have an additional element known as juice, or the vig, which is the tax paid to the sportsbook for each bet. The juice is indicated next to the point spread. This number is used to determine a wager payout. For a bet on the Bears, a bettor would earn a profit of $100 for every $112 risked. Someone betting on Texas would earn a profit of $100 for every $109 risked.
Betting on over/under totals looks at the cumulative final score between two teams, not the winner or loser of the game. Bettors are required to accurately predict if the teams combine higher or lower than a number set by oddsmakers. Oddsmakers set the over/under total for Baylor vs. Texas at 129.5 points.
- Over 129.5 points (-118)
- Under 129.5 points (-110)
Again, juice or vig comes into play with over/unders. Betting over 129.5 points means in this case that a bettor would have to wager $118 to earn $100. Betting under 129.5 points would mean a bettors would earn $100 for every $110 risked.
Baylor Prop Bets
For those Baylor Bears fans that have a particular favorite player, prop bets are a great way to show your support. Oddsmakers will also set lines on player statistics. Bettors then have the opportunity to guess whether those players will go over or under the set line to win money. Some popular prop bets include how many points a player will score, who will score first, how many rebounds a player gets, and many more.
Baylor Future Odds
If you like Baylor's odds to make the Final Four or win the NCAA Tournament, take a look at futures odds . A futures bet is wager for an event happening in the later in the season. Because a futures bet can be really hard to predict, the payouts are much higher than a typical wager. The Bears are currently +225 to make the Final Four and +1000 to win the NCAA Tournament.
How to Bet on the Baylor Bears
Sports betting is not currently legal in Texas, and there does not seem to be much in the way of progress for it to be legalized in 2022. Texas politicians have been largely opposed to sports betting in recent years, but sentiment within the state could be shifting. Most expect that any potential legislation could be voted on in the 2023 state general election at the earliest. Stay tuned for updates on The Action Network's Texas betting page regarding sports betting legislation in the state.
