Baylor vs Marquette Prediction & Pick

These are two of the deepest teams in college basketball. Baylor is led by an outstanding backcourt duo of Flagler and top five national recruit Keyonte George, but head coach Scott Drew uses up to 15 players per game. On the other side, five Marquette players are averaging over 9.0 points per contest.

The edge ultimately goes to the Bears here. Baylor ranks third in the country in scoring (91.2 points per game) and checks in at first in offensive efficiency as well.
