Best Early 2019 BIG 12 Title Bets – July 26th Edition

Posted by Derrick Harper on July 26, 2019 in

Big 12 football is always fun to watch, as they have some of the most high-powered offenses in the country. Shootouts are very common in Big 12 games. With teams such as Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, and West Virginia, points will be aplenty. This conference has been dominated by the Oklahoma Sooners over the past few years. Let’s look and see if that NCAAF Betting trend will continue.

Best Early 2019 BIG 12 Title Bets – July 26th Edition

Baylor

Baylor is still trying to recover from the Art Briles debacle. Matt Rhule had a good season last year with a very young team. Their non-conference schedule is fairly weak, and they should be able to find some wins in Big 12 games. They aren’t ready to contend yet, but Rhule has things going in the right direction in Waco.

Iowa State

Iowa State came on the scene last year as they weren’t expected to be as good as they were. They have a lot of returning players from last year’s group, and they should have a very good defense. They have a tough schedule, as they play Iowa, and have back-to-back games against Oklahoma and Texas. They will be in the top tier of the conference standings but probably can’t win the Big 12.

Kansas

Les Miles makes his return to college football. He has a huge job ahead of him. Although he has recruited some decent players to come to Lawrence, they’re nowhere near ready to contend. It’ll be another long year for the Jayhawks.

Kansas State

Bill Snyder has retired for the second time, and Chris Klieman has taken over. Klieman has a lot of work to do, as the Wildcats don’t have the talent to compete this year. It’ll be a tough year for the Wildcats.

Oklahoma

Lincoln Riley will have the Oklahoma Sooners contending for the national championship. He’s upgraded his defensive coaching staff, as Alex Grinch will look to make the defense as powerful as the offense. Alabama transfer Jalen Hurts will lead the offense. With many skill players returning, and a powerful offensive line, the Sooners should put up a ton of points. If the defense can carry their load, the Sooners should win the Big 12 and contend for the national title.

Oklahoma State

Mike Gundy’s team will score points. The biggest question marks for the Cowboys are who will start at quarterback, and can their defense stop anyone? Gundy’s teams always put up points, but always seem to give up too many. Oklahoma State is always near the top of the standings, and this year should be no exception.

TCU

Gary Patterson is one of the best coaches in the country. He has turned TCU into one of the top programs in the country. The Horned Frogs will have some tough decisions to make this year, as they lost a good portion of their defense last year, and they need to decide on a quarterback. Patterson always seems to find a way to make things work out. They’ll be good, but not good enough.

Texas

Could this finally be the year for the Longhorns? After their thrashing of Georgia in last year’s bowl game, many have put Texas in their top 10’s. With Sam Ehlinger returning, the Texas offense should have a good season. They will have inexperienced offensive and defensive lines. Do they have enough to overtake Oklahoma?

Texas Tech

Gone is Kliff Kingsbury and his wide-open offense. With quarterback Alex Bowman returning and a loaded set of skill players, Texas Tech will still put up some big numbers. They do have road games at Oklahoma and Texas, so this will make it tough on the Red Raiders. Will they play enough defense to stop anyone?

West Virginia

Neal Brown from Troy takes over in Morgantown. This will be a rebuilding year for the Mountaineers, as they lost a lot from last year’s team. It could be a long year for West Virginia.

Big 12 Champion

This is Oklahoma’s conference to lose. They have the most talent, and they will use that talent to dominate the Big 12.
