The Big 12's 10 team format, which was forced upon the league after the defection of Nebraska and Colorado prior to the 2011 season, created, in the minds of many, an opportunity for big name, big budget schools like Texas and Oklahoma to have their way with the rest of the conference. Playing a true round robin schedule could only mean bad things for programs like Kansas State and Baylor; however, thus far, perception has not matched reality. Oklahoma State won the conference title in 2011 while the aforementioned Wildcats and Bears placed second and third, respectively, and last season K-State won the Big 12 Championship after posting an 8-1 conference record. Despite those developments, the latest Big 12 Championship Odds from 5Dimes are expecting the Longhorns and Sooners to duke it out with the Cowboys for league supremacy in 2013.
Mike Gundy's Oklahoma State team is the overall favorite at +280 odds ($100 wins $280), but the Longhorns are a close second at +295 odds. Oklahoma is a third choice at +395 odds while TCU is drawing +395 odds as a fourth pick to win the Big 12. Bill Snyder's Wildcats, who lost some big name players in Collin Klein and Arthur Brown, are getting +1600 odds ($100 wins $1600) to successfully defend their league title.
