In case you missed it, Gambling911.com will be on Baylor to probably beat Syracuse or at least cover the +2.5 line Thursday versus Syracuse.


No. 9 seed Baylor Bears win the always-tough-to-predict 8 vs. 9 matchup against Syracuse. The zone defense of Syracuse is iconic and can be tough to prepare for on short notice, but Baylor has had several days to gameplan for Jim Boeheim's 2-3. And Baylor already has an enormous built-in advantage over the zone to capitalize on.

The books have generally moved the line down from -2.5 to -1.5 in Syracuse's favor even though the Orange were seeing the most action.

Sagarin Ratings indicate a line of -2 for Baylor.

Gambling911.com is giving the Bears a 57% chance here and pulling the trigger on the Bears as its upset pick Thursday.
