College Football Picks: UConn Huskies vs Baylor Bears; Betting Line, UConn by -12 1/2; Television, ESPN2; Kickoff 8 p.m. ET, Rentschler Field, Storrs, Conn.
Having regrouped after losing their opener 41-13 to Wake Forest with wins over FCS Northwestern State (Louisiana) and Washington State, the Baylor Bears (2-1 SU, 1-1 ATS) face a stiffer challenge Friday night when they go on the road to play the University of Connecticut in a nationally televised game on ESPN2. Online sportsbook LooseLines.com has the Huskies favored by -12 1/2 with a 51 total in this one. UConn has been impressive in the early going with a 3-0 SU record including a 45-10 home victory over Virginia last week.
One thing the Baylor offense , led by freshman quarterback Robert Griffin, will face is a stiff UConn defense. It will be interesting to see how the young quarterback handles the pressure. UConn has eight of 11defensive starters back from 2007. A lot of their guys have played in some big games and had success. This is Griffin’s first road game.
The Huskies are presently riding an nine-game winning streak at Rentschler Field and have won those games by an average margin of 20.8 ppg.
According to first year Baylor coach Art Briles , the Bears are still a work in progress. It will be difficult for the Bears to come away from UConn with a win but should be good enough to hang close. That's why we like them to cover the +12 1/2 point line.
