Betting the Big 12: Championship Week 14

New, 6 comments

Who Wins the Big 12 Championship?

NCAA Football: Texas at Oklahoma Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

We went 1 for 2 as the last few weeks have been anything but ordinary in this Conference. Somehow TCU beat Oklahoma State, and Baylor beat Tech.

For the week we were EVEN on money, and after 13 stanzas are safely sitting with twice as much MONEY as we started with.

There are only two games for the Big 12 this week, and my guess is the ISU-Drake game will not get a line, as the Bulldogs are known as well as a deaf man at a live auction.

Here are your Bets for Week 14 of the Big 12 College Football Season

BIG 12 CHAMPIONSHIP - #14 Texas (9-3, 7-2) vs #6 Oklahoma (11-1, 8-1) at Arlington, TX | 11:00 A.M. on ABC| Oklahoma -7.5

This one is for all the marbles!!!

Do Longhorns reclaim the “Golden Hat?”
Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

The Oklahoma Sooners have a chance to avenge their only loss of the season, and will do it on national television in Jerry World. If it’s anything close to as good as the first one, we will be in for a treat.

I suspect OU will score at will, and with the way their defense has been – Texas can too. Sam Ehlinger is back to full strength, and the Longhorns have the weapons available to put up points.

Kyler Murray will do Kyler Murray things, and I find it hard to believe the Sooners won’t come out of this game victorious.

This is a tough line to bet on, but with a gun to my head, I’ll take Texas and the 7.5 points for $100k.

Drake (7-3, 6-2 in Pioneer League) at #24 Iowa State (7-4, 6-3) | 11:00 A.M. on Cyclones.Tv | Iowa State -42.5

By goodness, there is a LINE! The Cyclones are favored by nearly SIX TOUCHDOWNS, and if I had a guess, Campbell and the crew will be playing A LOT of reserves in this one. That means Re-Al Mitchell, All-American name Chandler Pulvermacher, and even fourth-string running back Mike Warren.

With that being said, this matchup is similar to an NFL team playing a college squad. It shouldn’t be close, as ISU out-weighs, out-runs, and out-muscles all of Drake across the board.

If you can find this line on a site, I would put my money on Drake. I’ll take the Bulldogs and the 42.5 points for $250k.
