Baylor vs. Oklahoma Odds: Bears open as 12 point favorite in Big 12 Matchup

Wesley Hitt

According to @LVSuperbook, the Baylor Bears are double-digit favorites over the Oklahoma Sooners in what has shaped up to be the biggest game in Floyd Casey Stadium history.

In 10 days' time, the 6th-ranked Baylor Bears return to action against the 10th-ranked Oklahoma Sooners in a nationally-televised Thursday night game at Floyd Casey Stadium.  It will be, by almost any measure, the biggest game in stadium history to date, in what will definitely be the second-to-last Baylor game ever played there.  And according to LVSuperbook, we're going to do it as fairly large favorite:

I've yet to see anyone that seems truly surprised by this line. In fact, Jordan Esco of Crimson and Cream Machine, the OU SB Nation blog, tweeted the following:

He then embarked on a twitter escapade of sorts to find out the last time the Sooners were considered such an underdog.  The answer was apparently in 2005, when OU was a 13.5-point dog to the undefeated eventual national champion Texas Longhorns, led by Vince Young.

I'm curious what people feel about this line, a week out from the game.  Will it go up or down?  Is it too high or too low?  I know Baylor fans are confident about our team, so I'm opening this up to everyone.  Thoughts?

Oh, and before I forget to mention it once again, BUY YOUR BLACKOUT GEAR NOW.
