Big 12 title odds put Baylor right behind TCU as OU, UT take backseat

BY foxsports • June 16, 2015

The odds are out and they simply confirm what every Big 12 team, particularly Oklahoma and Texas, now realize: The road to the conference championship no longer goes through Austin and Norman.

There's a detour through Waco and Fort Worth. 

The Sooners and Longhorns, so used to being the Big 12 title favorites, have taken a backseat to the Big 12's rising powers, and last season's co-champs, Baylor, which can claim back-to-back conference titles, and TCU. 

Sportsbook operator CG Technology posted its odds Monday for 2015 champions from each Power 5 conference. TCU (17-10) and Baylor (5-2) are favored to win the league title. Oklahoma (4-1) and Oklahoma State (5-1) are next.

Here's how the entire conference shakes out, according to CG Technology:

TCU 17-10

Baylor 5-2

Oklahoma 4-1

Oklahoma State 5-1

Texas 7-1

Kansas State 10-1

West Virginia 15-1

Texas Tech 20-1

Iowa State 25-1

Kansas 100-1
