Baylor is fresh off a huge 77-72 win over then-8th-ranked Iowa State this weekend and remains the number one team in the country after winning the national title last season. Though they are ranked No. 1 in the polls, Baylor is third in Vegas, as far as odds for winning the national championship go. Baylor currently has 10/1 odds of repeating in the 2022 tournament, which up from 18/1 last month. Gonzaga is the odds on favorite at 7/1 followed by Duke at 9/1, but the Big 12 has seven teams on the board, and two future members, Houston (22/1) and BYU (100/1) made this board as well.
Here are the current odds, courtesy of BetOnline.ag (Big 12 Teams in BOLD):
As we all know, the Big 12 is an absolute gauntlet on the court and the conference will have a deciding factor in who wins the national title at some point in the tournament.
Now, getting to March should prove to be a fun trip, especially if you pay attention to the Big 12. So buckle up, because it’s about to get fun in the heartland.
