Over/Under Pick: Over 138 ½

Colgate has trended toward the under this season, but the team is not going to face much resistance against Baylor’s defense. This one has a good chance to go over, especially if Colgate’s 3-point shooting shows up in the tournament.

Bet online the over in the Colgate-Baylor matchup.



ATS Pick: Colgate +14

The Raiders possess two things that are a recipe to stick with a heavy favorite: 3-point shooting and defense. The Bears’ defense has been their Achilles heel.

Ultimately, I still like Baylor to advance but not before Colgate keeps it close. Take Colgate to cover the spread at the sportsbook.



Best Player Prop: Braeden Smith Over 12.5 Points (-109)

Braeden Smith led Colgate in scoring this season at 12.5 points per game. The Raiders guard has scored 12 or more points in four of his last five games.

This is a step up in competition, but the Baylor defense has been vulnerable. Take the over on Smith’s points versus Baylor.
