Big Twelve Over/Unders

Oklahoma State - 7 wins

My bet - Over

Mike Gundy is the best coach in Oklahoma State history. Without him, they’d be a bottom feeder in the Big Twelve. Plus, his hair is glorious. God bless the mullet. Pokes win 8 easy, maybe 9. 

Iowa State - 8 wins

My bet - Under

Since when did Iowa State become a good program? They’re a never has been and never will be. Just because Matt Campbell is the flavor of the day in the coaching world doesn’t mean the Cyclones can be depended on to win more than 8 games. 

The Cyclones are a fringe bowl team. Likely 6 wins this year. 

Texas - 9.5 wins

My bet - Under

I really like the trajectory of the Longhorns, but they are not back by Texas’ lofty standards. This will be a pullback or market correction year before the Horns take off and challenge for the college football playoff in 2020 and 21. 

West Virginia - 5 wins 

My bet - Over

I think the Big Twelve is OU and everybody else. So if that’s the case how do the Mountaineers not win at least 6 games? 

TCU - 7.5 wins

My bet - Under

I feel like the Horned Frogs have lost their energy. It feels very dull in Fort Worth like we are entering a period of indifference and 7-5 or 6-6 records for eternity. 

Baylor - 7 wins

My bet - Over

Matt Rhule is a damn good coach. I feel like he is better than the Baylor job, honestly. I think they get to 8 wins and continue on an upward trajectory.

Kansas State - 5.5 wins

My bet - Over

Doubt Chris Klieman and K-State at your own peril. Kleiman is an excellent coach and in a watered-down Big Twelve, the Wildcats will get to bowl eligibility without too much trouble. 

Texas Tech - 6.5 wins

My bet - Under

No way Tech gets to 7 wins. Their defense is awful and new coach Matt Wells needs to fix a lazy culture in Lubbock. This is a sold 3-4 year rebuild job. 

Kansas - 3 wins

My bet - Push

This is the toughest number to bet without a doubt. I have no idea what to expect of Les Miles or Rock, Chalk, Jayhawk. I think they will play with better energy and pull off one upset in the Big Twelve to get to 3 wins. 

Oklahoma - 10.5 wins

My bet - Over

The Lincoln Riley machine continues.
