Well this is certainly interesting. When I wrote my early season odds to win the Big 12 post a month ago, OSU was 18-1 to win the Big 12. I thought that was a little bit high and that there was a lot of value in them at that spot.
I looked again yesterday and OSU is 8-1.
In fact here’s how the entire Big 12 has changed since July 17.
|Team||Old Odds||New Odds|
OSU claims the biggest increase in odds and Iowa State, Kansas State, and TCU experienced the biggest drop.
Frankly, I never really understood why TCU was ahead of OSU and West Virginia to begin with.
OSU though, I can’t say I understand the massive jump either. What happened between July 17th and now to justify the change? Was it all the glowing articles on Wes Lunt? Maybe, but is that enough to make them a frontrunner in a crowded front of the race?
We’ll see, I liked 18-1 much better though.
