    Big 12 lines Today

    I thought this was interesting

    Texas Tech is 3.5 favorite over Baylor
    Utah is 4 point favorite over ISU
    Arkansas is 7.5 point favorite over A&M
    Missouri is 9 point favorite over Colorado

    The #10 team is only favored by 4 points over a unranked team. Sounds like Vegas isn't too sure about Utah, or Concerned ISU might be a team on the rise.

    I also like how the Big 12 south team we just soundly defeated is favored over another 4-1 south team.

    I think that has a lot to do with a bias against Baylor and the idea that they're playing above their actual level right now.


    For "I", for "S", forever!
    For Iowa State all the way.
    Let's go! To show them what the gang's all here for,
    Go! To show them how the Cyclones cheer.
    For "I", for "S", forever!
    For Iowa State do it right!
    It's time to climb up on the vict'ry wagon,
    Fight! Iowa State, Fight! Fight!

    It also has a lot to do with trends which Vegas always looks at when setting lines. Tech has pretty much owned Baylor both in terms of straight up and against the spread.
