Big 12 Betting Advice, Final Thoughts
Eventually, this will all start to work under Les Miles. Unfortunately, the offense hasn’t shown a thing yet, and Boston College has been nearly flawless. The Eagle backfield will have no issues getting past the 21, but you can get it at 20.5 in some spots.

Has West Virginia shown you anything so far to suggest that it might be able to handle a rock-solid NC State team? The Mountaineers just got hammered by 31 against Missouri and scored seven points. The O just isn’t working yet under Neal Brown, and NC State is only giving up six points.

America is trying to tell you it loves Kansas State. The line opened at Mississippi State -9 and flew down fast before settling in at -7.5. K-State hasn’t played anyone with a pulse, but it’s been close to flawless. The Bulldogs haven’t played anyone all that great, either – Louisiana and Southern Miss – and it’s been just okay. It would be nice if this was back at nine, but the Wildcats could win this outright.

For some reason, the world is going with Tulsa against Oklahoma State. It started out as OSU -15, it’s stuck at 14, and either way, you’re totally fine. If you were told to give up, say, 20, you wouldn’t have a problem with that. The Cowboy offense isn’t going to mess around in what will be like a home game at Chapman Stadium, but Tulsa should be able to do its part. There’s a decent chance the 64 point total is low by at least ten.

They know, that you know that Iowa State almost lost to Northern Iowa from the FCS world. They also know that you know that UNI always gives the other Iowa teams a hard time, and they know that you’ll think the Cyclones are a whole lot better than they showed. Whatever … Iowa is better and it’s only giving up two.

To be honest, considering TCU has only played one game, this is working on a theory more than what we really know. The rested Horned Frogs might just be the third best team in the Big 12. People are hammering them with all the Purdue quarterback concerns, but the 2.5 isn’t bad, even though you’ll hate giving away points on the road. ake care of anyone in the Purdue backfield.

Be careful of assuming this is as simple as Oklahoma Good, UCLA Bad. This Bruin defense might be just a wee bit better than we all think, and at home, it won’t take too many points to get past the 23.5. Don’t get too caught up in Oklahoma beating Houston and South Dakota – it might be in for a wee bit of a tussle. On the total, 73.5 is a HUGE number to hit considering UCLA’s offense hasn’t worked yet.

The Texas-Rice line is all over the place depending on what you’re looking for. You can get it with the Longhorns -32.5, or as low as 31.5. Either way, that’s a big number to give up considering Tom Herman teams occasionally sputter against the Rices of the world. Texas will put this away fast and then get out, but it’s all about whether or not the Owls will actually score. If you think Rice can get 14 points, take the underdog at home.

If you’re a regular reader, you know the drill when it comes to the late night games. You’re not staying up to take the under. The Texas Tech at Arizona point total has gone up from 71.5 to 78, but can be had for 76.5. That’s too high no matter what, but (say it with me) … you’re not staying up to take the under. It’s a toss-up game, but at home and getting 2.5 points, Arizona isn’t a horrible call.
