Everyone in the Big 12 is now at least halfway through their 2022 schedule as we roll into Week 8 of the season, but the conference schedule still has a way to go before a champion will be crowned.
In Week 7 action we saw TCU take down Oklahoma State in the Big 12 Game of the Year to this point, West Virginia and Oklahoma get back on the winning side of things, and Iowa State lose in heart-breaking fashion in Austin.
With Week 8 now officially upon us, here are the opening lines for Big 12 action, courtesy of BetOnline.
Kansas will try to get back in the win column this week after dropping back-to-back games, but will have a tough task ahead of them in Waco at 11:00 a.m. CT on Saturday. The Baylor Bears opened up as nine-point favorites, although the line has shrunk a bit to 8.5 as of Monday morning.
At 2:00 p.m. CT the West Virginia Mountaineers will take on Texas Tech in Lubbock, with the hometown Red Raiders opening as 3.5-point favorites. Despite West Virginia looking impressive offensively last week, this line has swelled tremendously since Sunday afternoon and is all the way up to six points in Texas Tech’s advantage.
In the first of two ranked matchups in the Big 12, the 20th-ranked Texas Longhorns will head to Stillwater to face the No. 11 Oklahoma State Cowboys at 2:30 p.m. CT. The home team is actually a dog in this game right now, as UT opened as a 3.5-point favorite, and that line has grown to 4.5 points as of Monday morning.
The final game of the Week 8 Big 12 schedule will kick off in primetime, at 7:00 p.m. CT, with the 17th-ranked Kansas State Wildcats hitting the road to take on No. 8 TCU Horned Frogs. Sonny Dykes’ Frogs are the favorite in this one early on, opening up as four-point favorites, with the line slightly moving in TCU’s favor to 4.5 points on Monday.
Here is a quick look at all of the current lines for Week 8.
- Kansas at Baylor (-9)
- West Virginia at Texas Tech (-6)
- No. 20 Texas (-4.5) at No. 11 Oklahoma State
- No. 17 Kansas State at No. 8 TCU (-4.5)
