Betting Baylor Bears

The Baylor Bears football team represents Baylor University in the 2022 NCAA Division I FBS football season. The Bears play their home games at McLane Stadium in Waco, Texas. They compete in the Big 12 Conference (Big 12). They are led by third-year head coach Dave Aranda.

The Bears started the 2021 football season not ranked. They were picked to finish 8th in the Big 12 Conference. The Bears finished the regular season with a 3–0 record in nonconference play and 7–2 in Big 12 play.

Their only loses came to No. 19 Oklahoma State on October 2, 2021, and unranked TCU on November 6, 2021. On November 8, Baylor’s assistant head coach, Joey McGuire took an offer by Texas Tech University to replace the recently released Matt Wells as the Red Raiders’ head coach.

In consequence, McGuire left the Baylor Bears’ 2021 football coaching staff and did not finish the season. Starting QB Gerry Bohanon sustained a hamstring injury on November 20, 2021 against Kansas State.

He remained unavailable for the rest of the regular season and the Big 12 Championship Game. In said Big 12 Championship Game, the Bears resorted to their redshirt Freshman backup QB, Blake Shapen to beat Oklahoma State 21–16.

After they won Baylor’s 3rd Big 12 title, the Bears beat No. 8 Ole Miss 21–7 in the 2022 Sugar Bowl. The Bears finished 2021 with a 12–2 record. This is the most wins in Baylor Bears program history as well as a school record of five wins against ranked teams in a single season.

According to the best online sportsbooks, Baylor is 4-1 ATS in their last five games. The total has gone UNDER in five of Baylor’s last five games. Baylor is 5-0 SU in their last five games. Bears are 7-0 SU in their last seven games at home.

“The ability to come to Baylor was to change, to grow and to become a full person,” Aranda said. “Going from your head to your heart is the longest road. I feel like Baylor is a fit for that, and I think I learn more than I teach here. I’m happy to be here.”

Aranda’s faith was a big reason why wanted to come to Baylor, a private Christian university. “To have the opportunity to coach with your Christian faith out front was a big pull,” Aranda added. “Unfortunately, most schools, that’s not looked upon as something to be. At Baylor, I can coach being myself. And I can coach from the heart alongside kids who have their hearts wide open.”

Aranda was raised Catholic, and his mother was a devout churchgoing lady. Faith was part of his life from an early age, but it wasn’t until he was coaching at the University of Hawaii that he reallt began to pursue a personal relationship with the Lord.

“Since that point, I think [I’ve gained] the ability to kind of let go of control and open up my heart,” Aranda said. “I’d been able to do that, I think, with people. For a long time, [I] struggled to do that with God.”

Aranda strives to foment an environment where his players feel comfortable with themselves because they know they have loved and support. For him, it all begins with building deep connections.
