In Week 6, we had a full slate of Big 12 football as eight of the ten teams in the conference were active on Saturday, with Baylor and West Virginia being idle over the weekend.
The Big 12 standings are starting to take shape, and even heading into Week 7, there are some major surprises. By this point, Vegas has adjusted its algorithms, but the Big 12 is still as wide open as it has ever been. Here are the opening lines for Big 12 football heading into Week 7.
The first game of the week pits the idle teams from last week’s action as the Baylor Bears will head to Morgantown on Thursday night to take on the West Virginia Mountaineers. Dave Aranda’s squad opened as a 3.5-point favorite in this contest despite being on the road, and that line has not moved since it opened on Sunday.
The next game on the docket will have the Kansas Jayhawks head to Norman, Oklahoma to take on a reeling Sooners’ team that is coming off one of its worst losses in school history. KU will seemingly be without star quarterback Jalon Daniels and that seemingly had a major impact on the line of this game as Oklahoma opened as a 7.0-point favorite and the line hasn’t budged since opening.
Iowa State will take on a Texas team that comes into this game as healthy as it has been all season, and having Quinn Ewers in the fold makes the Longhorns one of this conference’s most dangerous teams. Because of that, Texas opened up as a 14-point favorite in this game and that line has swelled to 16 points in just under 24 hours.
The final game of the week, which comes in the 2:30 p.m. window, might be one of the best games of the season in the Big 12, with No. 8 Oklahoma State heading to Fort Worth to take on No. 13 TCU. Despite being the lower-ranked team, the Horned Frogs actually open as 3.5-point favorites, and the line has remained solid there through Monday morning.
Here is a quick look at the current lines, courtesy of BetOnline.
- Baylor (-3.5) at West Virginia
- No. 19 Kansas at Oklahoma (-7)
- Iowa State at No. 22 Texas (-16)
- No. 8 Oklahoma State at No. 13 TCU (-3.5)
