We are one day away from the vast majority of the Big 12 getting its 2023 college football season started, while UCF got things kicked off last night and Kansas will keep the action going this evening.
In four months, we will know which four teams will get the chance to play for a national championship in the 2023 College Football Playoff, but oddsmakers aren’t waiting that long to give the public their favorites.
In fact, BetOnline updated their odds on August 31, giving us a measuring stick to use going into the year.
All 14 Big 12 teams appear on the board, ranging from the 9th-best odds all the way to 500/1 odds. Let’s take a look.
Updated Big 12 Odds to Win 2023 College Football Playoff
|Team||Odds (Odds on 1/10/23)|
|Kansas State||200/1 (40/1)|
|Oklahoma State||250/1 (100/1)|
|Texas Tech||250/1 (OTB)|
|Iowa State||300/1 (OTB)|
|West Virginia||400/1 (OTB)|
Texas has the 9th-best odds in the nation to take home the national title behind Georgia (12/5), Alabama (6/1), Michigan (15/2), Ohio State (8/1), LSU (10/1), USC (12/1), Clemson (18/1), Florida State (18/1), and is tied with Penn State at 22/1.
After Oklahoma (80/1), the remainder of the Big 12 comes in at 200/1 or higher, with the final eight teams making the board after not appearing back in January.
Even Vegas knows that the Big 12 is wide open in 2023, and that should tell you just how competitive this league will be this season.
