Big 12 Championship: Oklahoma State Vs. Baylor

The Big 12 conference championship game between the Oklahoma State Cowboys and Baylor Bears marks the first time since 2009 that the Oklahoma Sooners are not a part of the game.

In the matchup, online sportsbooks are favoring the Cowboys by five points.

Oklahoma State vs Baylor Spread Odds

  • Oklahoma State Cowboys -5.0 -110
  • Baylor Bears +5.0 -110

The two have met earlier this season and Oklahoma State emerged with a win by a score of 24-14 and a similar result may be in play for their second matchup of the season. There’s a case to be made that the Cowboys should’ve won by more in the first game, gaining 121 more yards and losing the turnover battle 3-0.

Baylor also isn’t as hot as Oklahoma State at the moment. The Cowboys have won five straight and have outscored opponents by 29.2 points per game in doing so. The Bears are 4-1 in their last five games with just a +7.75 average scoring margin in those games.

ABC will have coverage of the game at 12 p.m. EST on Saturday.

Pac-12 Championship: Oregon Vs. Utah

The Pac-12 championship game is a rematch between the Oregon Ducks and Utah Utes. The two played just two weeks ago in a game where Utah beat Oregon 38-7.

The game may not be as lopsided as the first meeting, but Utah may win regardless.

Utah vs Oregon Spread Odds

  • Utah Utes -3.0 EVEN
  • Oregon Ducks +3.0 -120

Utah was favored in the first matchup despite being the lower-ranked team, showing that college football betting sites seemingly have a good grasp on how this game will play out. Favored by the same number they are now, this further reinforces the belief that sportsbooks are confident in their assessment of the two teams.

Vegas is right more often than not, and they’re telling everybody they’re right in this one. ABC will air the game on Friday at 8 p.m. EST.
