Big 12 Championship Predictions & Odds 2023

The Big 12 will be a much different-looking conference next season when Texas and Oklahoma leave to join the SEC, but for 2023, we have both still playing games and competing for a championship.

Below, we’ll examine the odds of each team in the conference and offer some of the best bets for the futures market that we think you should pursue.

NCAA College Football Big 12 Championship Predictions

Best Bets

Texas (-110)

The Longhorns are coming off a massive win on the road against Alabama 34-24 in Week 2. The Crimson Tide only led in the game for just over a minute as Quinn Ewers threw for well over 300 yards and three scores. 

Not only are the Longhorns favorites to win the Big 12 Championship, but they should be inside the top-four odds to win the National Championship.

They came out a bit slow against the Wyoming Cowboys, tied 10-10 in the fourth quarter but scored 21 in the fourth quarter to close it out. Ewers finished with 11 completions for 131 yards and two touchdowns. 

Ultimately, we predict the Longhorns win the conference. 

Oklahoma (+240)

The Big 12 is a top-heavy conference, and you’ll see that our three best bets are the top three in odds. Dark horse teams like UCF were intriguing, but after an injury to their quarterback, that seems difficult to maintain.

Admittedly, after two weeks, we don’t feel exactly inspired by Oklahoma. In Week 1, they slaughtered Arkansas State 73-0 but struggled mightily in Week 2 against SMU. 

They rebounded in Week 3 against Tulsa, beating them 66-17 on the road. Quarterback Dillon Gabriel lit up the stat sheet for 421 yards, five touchdowns, and one interception. 

The next three opponents include Cincinnati, Iowa State, and Texas. Against Texas, they’ll be on the road, so that will be an intense matchup for them. 

Kansas State (+750)

The Wildcats lost a bunch of talent to the NFL this offseason, headlined by edge rusher Felix Anudike-Uzomah, but they appear to be moving along just fine. Their first two games of the season have been easier competition with SEMO and Troy, but they’ve allowed just 13 total points while scoring at least 42 in both matchups. They’ll have some stiffer competition coming up, but their defense and solid offense make them a contender to potentially take out the Sooners.

They lost on a 61-yard field goal at Missouri, which was a tough loss, but they’ll have a chance to rebound at home against UCF. 

The next three games include UCF, Oklahoma State, and Texas Tech. 

  • UCF would’ve been a tough matchup, but without John Rhys Plumlee, they should handle it in a high-scoring game.
  • Oklahoma State lost to South Alabama at home 33-7 in Week 3. 
  • Texas Tech is 1-2, so they didn’t make the cut here for best bets, but their offense with Tyler Shough and his rushing ability could be an issue.
