The four teams mentioned above currently make up the top four in the Big 12 standings heading into Week 8, so those two games will go a long way in deciding who makes their way into the Big 12 Championship Game in December.
TCU and Texas are favored in those contests, but there is quite a lot of money coming in on the underdogs in each Big 12 showdown. In fact, Oklahoma State and Kansas State are two of the top underdogs in Vegas this week, in terms of money received.
The most bet underdog this week, according to BetOnline, is UCLA (+6), who is set to take on Oregon this weekend in Eugene. 78% of the bets coming in on that game are on UCLA. The second-most bet underdog this week is Oklahoma State (+6), receiving 72% of the bets. Just behind Oklahoma State is K-State (+3.5), who is receiving 68% of the bets coming in on their game against TCU.
Another Big 12 game this weekend that is following a public trend is Kansas-Baylor. This game is receiving the most bets of any in the nation this week to hit the over, with the O/U set at 58 points.
