West Virginia Given Sixth Best Odds To Win Big 12 This Season



After being picked to finish sixth in the Big 12 earlier this month, perhaps it comes as no surprise West Virginia’s odds to win the Big 12 are sixth-best in the conference.

According to SuperBook Sports, WVU has 30/1 odds to win the conference this season, ranking behind Oklahoma, Iowa State, Texas, TCU and Oklahoma State.

With an offense expected to make a leap with senior quarterback Jarret Doege and senior running back Leddie Brown returning and a defense that ranked as the best in the conference last season, WVU’s 30/1 odds bode well for a team with dark horse chances to make a run at the upper echelon of Big 12 teams this season.

Oklahoma, last season’s Big 12 champion, has the best odds to win the conference, with 4/5 odds. As a heavy favorite to win the division, Oklahoma’s odds reflect accordingly. Iowa State (12/5 odds), Texas (10/1 odds) TCU (14/1 odds) and Oklahoma State (25/1 odds) round out the top five teams in the conference.

The trio of Baylor, Kansas State and Texas Tech each have 80/1 odds to win the conference while Kansas’s 2,000/1 odds bring up the rear.
