2007-2008 Baylor Bears NCAA Basketball Odds

NCAA basketball odds for many years have seen the Baylor Bears as big underdogs in Big 12 play.

That may be the case again this season but with seven of their top eight scorers returning, Baylor should be better in 2007-2008 on the basketball odds board.

NCAA basketball odds may be affected this season as Baylor has a top 25 recruit in LaceDarious Dunn. The starters this season for NCAA basketball odds fans to look at for Baylor are top scorer and assist man Curtis Jerrells along with Aaron Bruce. The backcourt depth comes from Henry Dugat and Tweety Carter. There is some decent talent upfront as well according to NCAA basketball odds experts. Kevin Rogers is the big body while Mamadou Diene blocks shots in the middle according to experts at NCAA basketball odds. Sophomore Josh Lomers and transfer Delbert Simpson should get playing time for fans of basketball odds, in addition to red-shirt Djibril Thiam.

NCAA basketball odds fans will see that the Bears return five starters who combined for 83.2 percent of their starts and 90.6 percent of their points last season. Basketball odds experts see that the Bears bring back nine lettermen that have combined for 246 starts, the highest number at Baylor in over 10 years. NCAA basketball odds fans know that last year it was junior forward Kevin Rogers that doubled his scoring average and recorded five double-doubles, the most by a Baylor player in Big 12 games since 2002-03. Junior guard Curtis Jerrells was named to the 2007 Big 12 All- Tournament Team after averaging 25.0 points in two games and impacting NCAA basketball odds. He scored in double-digits in 14 straight contests to end the season.

NCAA basketball odds may want to know that Jerrells is the second Baylor player ever to be named to the Big 12 All-Tournament Team. Fans of basketball odds may want to be aware that senior guard Aaron Bruce ranks 15th on the career scoring list at Baylor with 1,060 points. NCAA basketball odds experts know that he is ninth on the all-time Big 12 list for 3-point field goals made with 117.

NCAA basketball odds experts see that Baylor’s 15 wins in 2006-07 were the most under head coach Scott Drew. The Bears also won a game in the Big 12 Tournament for the first time since 2001. Things could be even better for the Bears this season and a postseason berth in the NIT is not out of reach for Baylor fans that consider NCAA basketball odds.
