The Big 12 is arguably the strongest conference in basketball and Vagas has taken notice. The top-ranked and 10-0 Baylor Bears have looked like the defending champs through this point in the season and look primed to repeat in 2021-22. Kansas, after a disappointing 74-73 loss to Dayton, has been on a tear and looked like a contender yet again this season.
Vegas Insider has released odds for this year’s college basketball national championship, and Kansas and Baylor both made the top five, while Texas made the top 10.
Kansas is currently the highest odds in the Big 12 at +1100 with Baylor not far behind at +1200 and Texas at +2200.
Gonzaga is currently the favorite to win it all, with +500 odds.
Here is the entire list of odds from week six, courtesy of Vegas Insider:
In all, seven of the 10 Big 12 teams are on the board, and future members Houston (+2500) and BYU (+12500) made the list as well. The conference race is set to be fun yet again this year, and the Big 12 will no doubt be represented well in the tournament come March.
