Baylor hopes to end its woes in the month of March

The Baylor Bears are 2-7 SU and 4-5 ATS in their last nine games played in the month of March. The Bears hope to break out of that slump with success in the NCAA tournament, starting with their opening game against the New Mexico State Aggies.

SHARK BITES
  • Baylor is 2-5 ATS in its last seven games.
  • The total has gone UNDER in New Mexico State's last five games as underdog.
  • New Mexico State is 1-4 ATS in its last five games as an underdog of 12.0 or more.

The Bears surged out of the gate to a 20-1 SU record that included a 6-1 ATS start to the season. But Baylor hit a wall when the calendar turned to February, going 5-7 SU and ATS over the last 12 games with four outright losses as a favorite. Since the start of January, the Bears are just 7-12 ATS.

New Mexico State will try to become the first WAC team since 2007 to win a game in the NCAA tournament. The Aggies were solid on both sides of the court this season, ranking 53rd in the nation in offense with 78.9 points per game and 60th on defense with 67.2 points per game en route to a 28-5 SU campaign.

The Aggies haven't fared well against Big 12 opponents in recent seasons, with an 0-12 SU record in their last 12 games against the conference.
