Big 12 Football Week 13 Lines
Texas -7.5 at Kansas State
No. 19 Oklahoma State -1.5 at TCU
No. 13 Oklahoma -21.5 vs. Baylor
Texas Tech -27 vs. Kansas
No. 12 Iowa State -7 vs. West Virginia
A couple of thoughts on these opening lines: I was surprised Oklahoma State was only a 1.5-point favorite at TCU. I know the Horned Frogs smoked Kansas this past weekend, but honestly who hasn’t smoked Kansas in 2020? Oklahoma State had some late struggles with Texas Tech late in the game, but OSU is still in Big 12 contention, while TCU is playing for pride at this point. And the home field advantage is slim to none for the Horned Frogs, especially with limited fans.
Kansas +27 vs. Texas Tech might finally be appealing enough to justify rolling with KU. Heck, KU beat the Red Raiders last season, West Virginia’s defense, combined with a possible Iowa State Cyclones letdown game makes +7 an interesting pick next Saturday night.
Meantime, the Texas -7.5 line seems right, but then again, will Texas care anymore since they’re not winning the Big 12 and Tom Herman might be a dead man walking? Lastly, the OU number seems the most accurate, but is tricky. I’ll have my picks on the site later this week, like usual.
