Baylor Bears vs Oregon Ducks 12/18/2021 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The #1 Baylor Bears of the Big 12 Conference vs Oregon Ducks of the Pac-12 Conference in NCAAB action in Matthew Knight Arena, Eugene, OR, on Saturday, December 18, 2021, at 10:00 PM (EST). Baylor was expected to be in a slump after capturing the national title last season.

 

They dropped four starters, including standout point guard Davion Mitchell, to the NBA and just one, Flo Thamba, returned. Scott Drew, on the other hand, had role players who were eager to go up and become stars. They were also prepared to battle the smothering Baylor defense.

 

That’s what they accomplished on Sunday against a solid No. 6 Villanova team, restricting them to 22.2% shooting and 36 points. It was the first time the Wildcats kept under 40 points since 1979, and there was no shot clock back then.

 

In a tense defensive battle, James Akinjo led the Bears with 16 points, while Adam Flagler scored ten. The Bears not only defeated Nova, but they also defeated Michigan State by a score of 17, Stanford by a score of 38, and Arizona State by a score of 12.

 

The Bears are third in the country in points permitted per game (54.1), 18th in field goal percentage defense (37.3 percent), and 38th in three-point defense (27.9 percent ). They produce 81 points per game on 47.5 percent shooting (33.6 percent 3pt).

 

  • The Baylor Bears are 11-2-1 ATS in their last 14 matches.
  • Baylor is 7-1 SU in their last 8 matches on the road.
  • The total went UNDER in 7 of Baylor’s last 7 matches in the Pac-12 Conference.

Baylor Bears vs Oregon Ducks Predictions 12/18/2021

 

Oregon needed the victory over Portland after losing two consecutive Pac-12 matches, one to Arizona State in OT and the other to Stanford by three points last Sunday.

 

N’Faly Dante had 20 points and nine rebounds to pace the high-scoring Ducks, who recorded the highest points of the season. Quincy Guerrier contributed 17 points (96). Oregon shot 54% from the field and went 8-20 from beyond the arc. They outrebounded the Pilots by 10 and limited them to 38% shooting, but they also shot 11-of-26 from the arc.

 

This year, Oregon’s defense was bad, allowing 65.7 ppg on 44.3% shooting (33.6 percent 3pt). It’s just not where it has to be when they return to the Pac-12 competition.

 

The offense is underwhelming, scoring 70.9 ppg on 45.7 percent shooting (33.6 percent 3pt). Not having Chris Duarte, who is now in the NBA, is a significant loss who averaged 17.1 points and 42% 3-point shooting for the Ducks last year.

 

  • The University of Oregon Ducks is 2-7 ATS in their last 9 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 5 of Oregon’s last 6 matches this season.
  • The Ducks are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 matches in the Big 12 Conference.

#1 Baylor Bears vs Oregon Ducks. The NCAAB pick for this game is the #1 Baylor Bears. I’m certain Oregon will be ready for this game, but they’re up against a potential mini-dynasty.

 

Baylor is simply too excellent defensively, and their consistency is astounding. They gained eight consecutive matches against clubs ranked in the top ten. That’s incredible. Oregon is not a top-10 team. I’ll give them credit because, as this is Baylor’s first true home match, I believe they’ll stay in the game in the first half.

 

However, when you have such a strong defensive unit, you may score off your defense. It’s going to be bad. Perhaps not Villanova-ugly. But it’s a bummer for the Ducks. The #1 Baylor Bears will win to a predicted score of 83-65.
