Baylor Opens As A 2.5* Point Underdog At Oklahoma

New, 44 comments

Your Baylor Bears head to Norman looking to defeat Big Game Bob and his Tide-felling Sooners. *The line has already moved to OU -3.5.

The pre-season Big 12 Game of the Year is here in less than a week. That means it is time to look at what Vegas thinks will happen. Despite Bill Connelly's numerical prediction last week giving Baylor only a 19.5% chance of winning for the first time in Norman, Vegas has this game as what amounts to a toss-up, if you subscribe to the notion that a home team is given three points.

VegasInsiders.com is the "official" site for ODB lines, so they are the ones we are using. Baylor opened up as a 2.5 point underdog, but the line has already up to 3.5 in favor of Oklahoma. It will certainly be interesting to see if the line continues to grow or remains in the toss-up region. Personally, I think this is a great line and would take the points here, but you can vote in the poll for what you think the line for this 11:00 am game should be.
