Ducks Underdogs vs Baylor

April 2, 2019

On Friday Oregon women’s basketball will take the court continuing its March through the NCAA tournament. However this time it will be for the first time ever in the Final Four.

Kelly Graves and his talented squad, led by Sabrina Ionescu, will take the court in Tampa Bay (Fla.) to face a very talented Baylor squad led by a massive frontline.

For the second straight game, Oregon will be the underdog as they were against Mississippi State. 

5Dimes lists Baylor as a 4.5 point favorite. The spread between Notre Dame and UCONN is listed at 2.5.

The Bears have marched through its competition in the NCAA tournament including an Elite-8 blowout of Iowa, 85-53. Their closest win was by 25 points over South Carolina in the round of Sweet 16. 

The Ducks and Bears have a few common opponents from the season. Baylor played ASU early in the season, and won, a loss to Stanford in mid-December, and a victory over Cal in the second round of the NCAA tournament.

Tipoff on Friday will be 7 PM EST and will air on ESPN2. UCONN and Notre Dame will air immediately after.
