    Big 12 Win Total Over/Unders

    From Bovada, here's where the lines are set for regular season win totals:

    Baylor - 8
    Iowa State - 5.5
    Kansas - 3.5
    Kansas State - 8
    Oklahoma - 8.5
    Oklahoma State - 9.5
    TCU - 8
    Texas - 9.5
    Texas Tech - 7.5
    West Virginia - 6

    I'd take the over on TCU (don't see them going 7-5, so it's a push at worst) and the under on Tech, maybe - although TCU is the best deal on here. Probably stay away from the other eight lines.

    5.5 is right where I would have set the ISU line as well. I thought it may start at 5, in which case I would have bet the over.

    Re: Big 12 Win Total Over/Unders

    Ones I'd feel ok with betting on, starting with most confidence:
    1. Over on TCU
    2. Over on Oklahoma
    3. Under on West Virginia
    4. Under on Tech
    5. Over on K state (just because Snyder proves me wrong every year)

    I wouldn't touch anything else

    If the ISU line falls to 5, I'll bet on it.

    Re: Big 12 Win Total Over/Unders

    Hmm, I think that I might take the Kansas 3.5 and over. I really don't think they only win three but would have to look at their schedule. I have in the past taken the Iowa lines as they are easy money due to the stupid Iowa betters. There line is at 5.5 even with that easy schedule. I'm not sure on that one.

    Re: Big 12 Win Total Over/Unders

    I'm not a gambler, someone please explain to me how the over/under can be an integer and what happens if a team wins exactly that number of games.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    Falling exactly on the number is a push. The bet is simply refunded (no juice). Baylor is at 8 wins...if they win 8 on the nose, all bets are refunded. No one wins, no one loses.
