Betting the Big 12: Week 14 Edition

We now have FOUR straight weeks of Wins, and I see some ample opportunities for more Money this Week!

I’m Curious - How does this defense thing work?

Lady luck has finally started to show her true colors, as Okie State pushed (still a win), and K-State took care of business on the road at Texas Tech. We have now made money four consecutive weeks, and I can take care of paying off the hustlers.

As we move into the last week of Big 12 games, there are 6 teams that have clinched bowls, and another that’s one win away (TCU). The other 3 are out of contention, and have as much to play for as a drunk college kid walking back by himself from the bars…

All 10 teams are in action in the Last Week (14) of the College Football Regular Season. We have two games on Friday, and three on Saturday.

Here is Week 14 of Betting the Big 12

SATURDAY NOVEMBER 30th | #22 Iowa State (7-4, 5-3) at Kansas State (7-4, 4-4) | 6:00 P.M. on FS1 | ISU -3

The Cyclones come off an emotional, topsy-turvy performance against Kansas last week, but behind the arm of Brock Purdy still have a chance to win 8 games on the year, and finish 3rd in the conference. Purdy has broken all sorts of records, as the Cyclones face one of the Big 12’s best on defense.

Chris Klieman is Bill Snyder ball 2.0. This team wins games the old-fashioned way – run the ball, good fundamental defense, and tremendous special teams. They haven’t missed a beat, and will be a tough task for the Clones.

Iowa State has had some interesting flounders and fair share of bad beats in Manhattan, KS. I expect nothing less on Saturday. The line is right where it should be. I’ll just leave it at that.

SATURDAY NOVEMBER 30th | #14 Baylor (10-1, 7-1) at Kansas (3-8, 1-7) | 2:30 P.M. on ESPN | Baylor -14

The Baylor Bears have wrapped up a top-2 finish in the Big 12, and a rematch with Oklahoma in the Big 12 Championship game. They don’t have much to play for, especially in the lowly atmosphere that is Lawrence, Kansas.

The Jayhawks played with their hair on fire against ISU, and even held a lead late in the fourth quarter. KU has been the ultimate Jekyll and Hyde team of the Big 12, so you never know which team will show up.

With that being said, I’ll take Baylor with a win, but my guess is KU will cover. My confidence level is as high as Jerry Jones is on Jason Garrett though.

Here are my best bets for Week FOURTEEN of the 2019 Season

FRIDAY NOVEMBER 29th |West Virginia (4-7, 2-6) at TCU (5-6, 3-5) | 3:15 P.M. on ESPN | TCU -12

The Horned Frogs have everything to play for here, as Gary Patterson and his crew vie for a bowl berth. Quarterback Max Duggan struggled last week in the passing department, but the defense was able to keep the game close versus OU.

West Virginia gave Oklahoma State a run for their money, and it wouldn’t surprise me if they keep this one closer. Backup quarterback Jarret Doege impressed yet again, and should keep this game within a score.

I think TCU wins, but the coaching of Neal Brown will allow this Mountaineer team to cover the 12-point spread. I’ll take WVU and 12 points for $100k.

FRIDAY NOVEMBER 29th |Texas Tech (4-7, 2-6) at Texas (6-5, 4-4) | 11:00 A.M. On FOX | Texas -9

Longhorn fans are fighting a Sunday hangover after that beatdown against Baylor last week. The offense was non-existent, and to say Texas has underachieved this season is an understatement. Expectations were through the roof in the preseason, and I’m not sure which team is going to show up on Friday.

Tech put up a fight at home against KSU, but came up just a bit short. Jet Duffey has continued to rack up the stats through the air, but the defense is abysmal as always.

On paper, this one isn’t even close, it just comes down to Tom Herman getting his boys up to play. I think Texas slaughters the much less talented Red Raiders. Give me the Longhorns for $100k and the 9 points they are giving.

SATURDAY NOVEMBER 30th | #9 Oklahoma (10-1, 7-1) at #21 Oklahoma State (8-3, 5-3) | 7:00 P.M. On FOX | Oklahoma -12

This is BEDLAM! Now while it may not be as significant of a game as in previous years, this Oklahoma State team still is dangerous enough to pull off the upset.

Jalen Hurts has really made it difficult for OU to finish games the last few weeks, accounting for multiple turnovers in pressure situations. While he has put up the numbers, the Sooners have really been feast or famine – going from scoring multiple touchdowns one quarter to none the next.

The Cowboys have quietly been surging as of late, winning four in a row, and are surprisingly double-digit underdogs on the road.

While on paper you would think OU is the clear favorite, the eye test has shown us that the Sooners are vulnerable, and I expect the Cowboys to cover, if not even win.

I’ll take $250k on the Oklahoma State Cowboys and the 12 points they are getting.
