Big 12 Football: Opening Lines Released for Week 9

Las Vegas Sports Betting Board

With Week 8 of the Big 12 football season in the books, we now look ahead to Week 8. Week 8 saw a wild finish in Lawrence and Ames, with Oklahoma having to slip past Kansas and Iowa State holding off Oklahoma State in two of the more interesting games of the weekend in all of college football. Also, TCU got stomped by West Virginia and Kansas State came back from 14-0 down to beat Texas Tech. But now it’s onto Week 9 of the season and let’s start looking at the spreads.

These lines will often times start moving quickly by Monday or Tuesday, so if you see a number you like, it’s best to get moving on it. We will release our Big 12 football picks by Thursday, on our podcast and here on the website. Quick note: if you aren’t subscribe to the podcast, go do that now on iTunes, Spotify or wherever you get your podcasts.

Here’s a look at the lines.


Big 12 Football Week 9 Lines

Baylor -2 vs. Texas

Iowa State -6.5 at West Virginia

Oklahoma -18 vs. Texas Tech

Kansas State -3 vs. TCU

Oklahoma State -31 vs. Kansas

The only lines that mildly surprise me are the Oklahoma vs. Texas Tech line, as I thought that spread might end up being closer to two touchdowns than it is to three, given how OU has been so up and down this season. And then, after Kansas’ performance against Oklahoma, still being underdogs by over 30 points feels like quite an insult. But then again, Kansas has to start proving they can play with other Big 12 teams consistently before they get any serious love from Vegas or anyone else for that matter.
