Five Big 12 Football Odds To Watch For 2023 Season

In terms of football, there are many events to look forward to this year as the landscape of this sport is constantly changing. In particular, the Big 12 is a conference of 14 universities who take part in the National Collegiate Athletic Association’s Division. This year, the Big 12 welcomes in BYU, Cincinnati, Houston and UCF to the club this year while Texas and Oklahoma are on the way out. In this context, it is worth taking a look at the top 5 big 12 football odds for the upcoming season. 

Firstly, things are looking promising for Texas and this team coached by Steve Sarkisian has all of the pieces to push for double-digit wins and rank as the favorite in the Big 12 this fall. Texas along with Oklahoma are scheduled to leave the Big 12 for the SEC following the 2023-24 athletic season one year early. However, they are set to give it their all in their final Big 12 series with quarterback Quinn Ewers hopefully leading the team to victory after his hard earned honorable mention as Big 12 Offensive Newcomer of the Year in 2022. The Longhorns are thought to be trying to continue to improve their defense after trimming their per-game average from 31.1 to 21.6. Although the team may suffer in their performance due to the absence of linebacker DeMarvion Overshow, they are still predicted to be one of the leading defenses in the Big 12. Of course, with all of this going on there are many people choosing to make the experience even more exciting by placing bets on the Big 12. In fact, Big 12 bettors tend to fade New York schools in the ACC so it is worth getting in on the action. Betting on the Big 12 is also even more convenient as it can be done from the comfort of your own home on a smart phone. 

Secondly, The Oklahoma Sooners are coming into the 2023 season with a lot of energy following Texas as the second favorites to win. Coached by Brent Venables, the team has improved massively owing to the new players that have been added to the defense. Coupled with quarterback Dillon Gabriel and running backs Gavin Sawchuk and Jovantae Barnes leading the offense, the team is predicted to see massive improvements. It should also be interesting to see how they perform as in the 19-year history of the game, Oklahoma has cropped up in the game 12 times, which is the most of all Big 12 schools. In total, the Sooners have come away with 11 wins, which is also the most in conference history so it will be interesting to see if they can continue this lucky streak.  

Another prediction for this season is that Houston will remain steady in terms of their performance after coming off of an 8-5 season and a bowl win vs Louisiana. After being defeated by Kansas and Texas Tech in the last season, it is predicted that this team will be aided by the return of such players as Nelson Ceaser and Chidozie Nwankwo. Moreover, it is hoped that they will be able to recover from their previous defeats with the addition of Texas Tech transfer Donovan Smith as quarterback, and former West Virginia running back Tony Mathis who is set to replace Alton McCaskill IV who has transferred to Colorado. 

Furthermore, although Kansas State is in need of sprucing up its team with new members including cutting out some defensive backs, they still shouldn’t be overlooked when it comes to securing the Big 12 title. With a strong offensive line and the presence of upping quarterback, Will Howard the team is predicted to break some records in terms of scoring points. 

Lastly, TCU coached by Sonny Dykes has been a team that has been in receipt of many positive praise. Providing they can upgrade their time by replacing some of those on offence including quarterback Max Duggan and receiver Quentin Johnston, the team will be in for a chance of winning the Big 12 Title. The prospects of this team should be enhanced even further with the additional of quarterback Chandler Morris who should inject some extra life into the team. 

Ultimately, with the 28th season of Big 12 football starting on September 16th, it should be interesting to see how all of the different teams will fair out against each other in the coming weeks. From Texas being said to be the favorite team to win to The Oklahoma Sooners being forecast to perform better than ever, there are many different predictions that can be made for the Big 12. Why not tune in to see if any of these top 5 football predictions for this season will come true?
