2022 Big 12 Wins, Odds, Elections: Predictions for Every Team as Oklahoma, Texas Face Big Numbers

The Big 12 will not undergo a significant change in membership until 2023, but the current make-up is finally starting to take shape before the 2022 season. There are three new coaches and probably four new starting defenders who have joined the league, win harder than ever.

However, this has never stopped us. Early over / under betting lines have been launched in the Big 12 and there is a value that can be found. Here are the total wins, elections and predicted wins and losses for each of the Big 12 teams in 2022 with odds provided by Caesar’s SportsBook.

Over / under 8.0 wins

  • wins: Albany, in BYU, Texas, in Iowa, Oklahoma, Kansas, in Texas Tech, Kansas, TCU, in Texas
  • Losses: in West Virginia, Oklahoma

analysis: The defending Big 12 champions have lost some key figures in the NFL draft, but there are many reasons to believe the Bears will still be in the Big 12 class. Baylor is the strongest team in the trenches at both ends, losing just one participant between the offensive and defensive lines. Defenders Apu Ica and Jackson Player have a chance to be among the best duos in the nation. Finding new names in a runaway back and a broad successor may determine if the Bears can reach the college football dispute, but the figures are intriguing. Choice: Over 8.0 (-115)

Iowa

Over / under 6.5 wins

  • wins: Southeast Missouri, Ohio, in Kansas, Kansas, West Virginia, Texas Tech
  • Losses: in Iowa, Baylor, Texas, Oklahoma, Oklahoma, TCU

analysis: The Cyclones squandered perhaps the most talented list in the history of the program during an incredibly disappointing 2021 season, and they are entering 2022 as a mystery. Iowa coach Matt Campbell led the program to its greatest success in the program’s history during an exceptional six-year cycle, but now he must continue the momentum without the program’s strengths such as Brock Purdy, Mike Rose and Greg Iceworth II. Campbell will have his own list of coaches and ready to reach the right trophy, but this will be a team in transition. Choice: Under 6.5 (-115)

Kansas

Above / below 2.5

  • wins: Tennessee Tech, Duke, TCU
  • Losses: in West Virginia, in Houston, Iowa, in Oklahoma, in Baylor, Oklahoma, in Texas Tech, Texas, in Kansas

analysis: It’s time to start talking about Kansas as a real football team. The Jayhawks won headlines for Texas upset, but the 57-56 overtime win was just the first match of an impressive QB final to Jalon Daniels in Lance Leipold’s debut season. The Jawhacks scared Oklahoma before Caleb Williams pulled out some heroic action at the end of the game. KU later lost to TCU and West Virginia by a total of nine points in the last two games of the year. Kansas is ready to ruin a careless opponent with a sharp performance; TCU is my choice for now. Don’t be surprised if the Jayhawks even compete for four wins. Choice: Over 2.5 (-135)

Kansas

Over / under 6.5 wins

  • wins: South Dakota, Missouri, Tulane, Oklahoma, Texas Tech, TCU, Texas, West Virginia, Kansas
  • Losses: in Iowa, Oklahoma, in Baylor

analysis: The Wildcats are the most underrated team in the Big 12 by one mile. Kansas State boasts the best offensive and defensive players in the conference. Duce Vaughn, running back, was quiet ridiculous second season with 1872 yards from the fight and 22 touchdowns. Defensive side Felix Anudike-Uzoma had more layoffs last season than any returning Power Five player named Will Anderson. Transfer quarterback Adrian Martinez presents a wild card that could give Wildcats great progress if things go well. Break this. Choice: Over 6.5 (-160)

Oklahoma

Over / under 9.5 wins

  • wins: UTEP, Kent, Nebraska, TCU, Kansas, Iowa, Baylor, West Virginia, Oklahoma
  • Losses: Kansas, Texas, Texas Tech

analysis: Sooners were a machine with 10 victories throughout almost the entire era of the unified national championship. Under Lincoln Riley and Bob Stups, the Suners have fallen to 10 wins just four times, not counting the redundancies in the Covid 2020 season. However, Brent Venables starts from scratch in some ways, making Oklahoma’s design more difficult than ever. There are real bumps in the road, even if the Sooners can handle tough matches against last year’s Big 12 Championship Game Baylor and Oklahoma State. At least in 2022, this is not an OU team with a head and shoulders above the rest. Choice: Under 9.5 (-115)

Oklahoma

Over / under 9 wins

  • wins: Central Michigan, Arizona, UAPB, Texas Tech, TCU, Texas, Kansas, Kansas, Kansas, Iowa, West Virginia
  • Losses: in Baylor, Oklahoma

analysis: Oklahoma was in the Big 12 until the final game of the Big 12 in 2021 and is due to return in revenge in 2022. As defense coordinator Jim Knowles left for Ohio, the Cowboys added veteran SEC assistant Derek Mason in his place. Quarterback Spencer Sanders is entering his fourth year as a starter and defensive defender Colin Oliver is once again leading what should be a formidable unit. The defense will not be so nationally elite with a few deviations, but OSU has the power to return to the game for the title in the Big 12 – perhaps even against the same opponent. Choice: Over 9 (+110)

Texas

Over / under 9 wins

  • wins: ULM, UTSA, Texas Tech, West Virginia, Oklahoma, Iowa, TCU, Kansas
  • Losses: Alabama, Oklahoma, Kansas, Baylor

analysis: The Texas Hype train arrived at the station just in time, as did the Longhorns favorites for early betting to win the Big 12 for the first time since 2009. Transfer quarterback Queen Ayrs gives Longhorns one of the most anticipated quarterbacks of all time, while running back Bijan Robinson enters 2022 as a likely contender for Heisman. However, the defense did not receive much reinforcement after 5-7 seasons and the offensive line remained a problem area. Exceeding nine wins is possible, but there is actually more value in accepting less than expecting 10 wins in the regular season for the first time since Colt McCoy was in Austin. Choice: Under 9.0 (-125)

TCU

Above / below 6.5

  • wins: in Colorado, Tarlton, at SMU, Texas Tech, Iowa
  • Losses: Oklahoma, in Kansas, Oklahoma, Kansas, in West Virginia, in Texas, in Baylor

analysis: Horned frogs are an enigma after hiring a new coach for the first time since Gary Patterson was promoted to the top 20 years ago. Sony Dykes made a great turnaround at SMU and led the Mustangs to 10 wins for the first time since 1984 – before the death penalty. However, the TCU presents its own challenges in the rough Big 12. Transfers will help ease the transition, but Dykes still has to fix a broken defense and a poorly managed breach. His first year will include some exciting highs, but probably a middle finale. Choice: Under 6.5 (+110)

Texas Tech

Above / below 5

  • wins: Murray, West Virginia, Kansas, Oklahoma
  • Losses: Houston, North Carolina, Texas, Kansas, Oklahoma, Baylor, TCU, Iowa

analysis: The first year of Joey McGuire’s experience at Texas Tech will be a lot of fun. However, results can vary, especially with a brutal non-conference schedule that could include the top 10 opponents Houston and NC State, followed by Texas to open the Big 12 game. Several of the most manageable games are on the way – Iowa. Kansas and TCU – while the favorites of the Big 12 Texas, Oklahoma and Baylor come to town. The Red Raiders will absolutely steal one of these three home games. A win over Oklahoma for the first time since 2011 to end the year would ignite Lubok, even in season 4-8. Choice: Under 5 (-135)

West Virginia

Above / below 5.5

  • wins: Kansas, Towson, at Virginia Tech, Baylor, TCU
  • Losses: in Pete, in Texas, in Texas Tech, in Iowa, Oklahoma, Kansas, in Oklahoma

analysis: The mountaineers put together a master class on how to create the worst possible schedule for a hot seat coach. West Virginia plays hated rivals Pete and Virginia Tech in the non-conference. After the Hokies, the Mountaineers play Texas and Baylor for weeks. In November, WVU played in Oklahoma, Oklahoma, Kansas and Iowa. Maybe the transfer of QB JT Daniels really turns out to be the savior, but, my God, every gram of weakness will doom Neil Brown. Choice: Under 5.5 (-125)
