This Friday we have the second leg of the Sweet Sixteen with four regional games taking place and on Friday 03/26 we have four more regional semi-final games and today we choose to review the game between Baylor Bears #3 seed vs. St. Mary’s Gaels #10 seed, with Tip-Off at 7:30 PM ET from Reliant Stadium in Houston, Texas. The Bears beat Sam Houston State and Old Dominion to earn the right to play in the Sweet Sixteen Odds. Baylor has not been exactly a team who has dominated so far in the tournament. On the other side, St. Mary’s had a first round upset over the #7 seed Richmond and then shocked a lot of fans when they knocked off #2 seed Villanova. This matchup should be a close contest and the most recent NCAA betting and Basketball betting lines and odds atSBGGlobal.com reflect just with Baylor -190 ML and favored by -4 (subject to Change), the OV/UN at 142 1/2 and St. Mary’s Ca +160 ML.
Overall Baylor is a very balanced team. Most of their points come from Lace Darius Dunn and Tweety Carter at the guard positions, but they do also have a pair of big men who can provide offense as well in Ekpe Udoh (13.9 points per game) and Quincy Acy off of the bench (9.2 points per game). The Baylor Bears play with just about anyone in the tournament because of the matchup problems they create, but they haven’t been truly tested yet and that may end up being their worst enemy against St. Mary’s.

Baylor is a 4.5 point favorite with a total of 142.5 at SBG Global.
The St. Mary’s Gaels have a real; strong center in Omar Samhan, who has averaged 21.5 points and 10.9 rebounds per game. Also guard Micky McConnell is a good compliment to Samhan averaging 14 points per game. A real big question is if they, St. Mary’s can handle Baylor’s backcourt when they are on defense. Baylor has sufficient size to help neutralize Samhan in the paint, which makes the guard matchups that much more important. St. Mary’s has a very talented squad, but it appears the edge goes to Dunn and Tweety on the outside against the Gaels. This will be a very close game and be sure and get the latest updates for NCAA Betting and basketball betting lines and odds at the outstanding SBGGlobal.com sportsbook a know March Madness odds providers now for many years.
