Vegas undoubtedly isn’t expecting a wonder in 12 months 1 of the Lance Leipold era.

With the university football year just close to the corner, Superbook not long ago unveiled meeting title odds for individuals in a position to location a wager in possibly Nevada or Colorado. The odds have been shared by means of Twitter on Monday by Brett McMurphy, who is a university football insider for the Stadium Community.

Unsurprisingly, the Kansas soccer group is a extended shot to get the Huge 12 crown. The Jayhawks, who haven’t won more than three games in a time considering that 2009, enter this year with 2,000/1 odds to win the league.

KU possessing the longest odds to acquire the Major 12 really should be predicted. Kansas is coming off a -9 marketing campaign, and has concluded in very last location in the meeting standings for 6 consecutive seasons.

The Jayhawks are also dealing with drastic coaching alter, as Leipold did not consider about the software until finally following spring ball had been completed. But it is significant how a lot more time KU’s odds are compared to the rest of the Huge 12 teams.

Vegas is anticipating a rematch in the championship activity, with Oklahoma having 4/5 odds to gain the title and Iowa Condition coming in at 12/5 odds. In final year’s title video game, Oklahoma secured a 27-21 acquire over Iowa Condition for its sixth consecutive crown.

In its 2021 university soccer preview magazine, Pro Football Focus provides the Sooners a 60% probability of successful the Significant 12 meeting all over again. PFF jobs that the Cyclones have a 11% of finishing atop the league standings this tumble.

Texas, meanwhile, has the 3rd-very best odds soon after staying priced at 10/1 to get it all all through Steve Sarkisian’s initial time at the helm. For each PFF, the Longhorns have a 10% possibility of profitable the league. They ended up also picked to complete 3rd in the Huge 12 preseason poll.

TCU (14/1), Oklahoma State, (25/1) and West Virginia (30/1) are the only remaining squads with odds of 30/1 or far better. PFF likes Oklahoma State the greatest of people three teams, providing the Cowboys a 9% probability at winning the meeting. TCU has a 3% opportunity to acquire the league through PFF, when West Virginia will come in at 2%.

Baylor, Kansas Point out and Texas Tech are all in the exact same tier with 80/1 odds to win the league on Superbook.

It appears silly to place funds on another person other than the Sooners, but both Texas or Oklahoma Point out would possibly be the finest bets presented what prognosticators expect from each squads.

If I had to decide on a single, I may possibly in fact take Texas even however the starting up quarterback competitors is uncertain. The Longhorns must choose a leap with a person of the finest offensive playcallers in college soccer as their head coach, and operating again Bijan Robinson is 1 of the better offensive players in the league.

As for Kansas, I would never advocate betting on the Jayhawks — no issue the price tag — supplied the instances. That explained, KU will not have to wait lengthy to likely verify that the variety shouldn’t have been as extended entering the year.

Kansas opens league play with a home contest from Baylor on Sept. 18.
