Utah leads in Big 12 Championship betting spread.

The Big 12 Conference is undergoing significant changes in 2024 with the second phase of realignment, absorbing four teams from the PAC-12 to compensate for the departure of Texas and Oklahoma. This transformation sets the stage for an intriguing conference championship race, with Utah emerging as the favorite according to FanDuel Sportsbook odds.

Utah (+310) enters the new-look Big 12 as the frontrunner, backed by the return of quarterback Cam Rising. Rising, who missed the previous season due to injury, led Utah to the PAC-12 conference title in the two years before his setback. With Rising back in action, Utah is poised for success in the revamped conference.

Following closely behind Utah are Kansas State (+350), Kansas (+750), Iowa State (+900), and Texas Tech (+1000). These teams, along with the newcomers from the PAC-12, bring a competitive edge to the conference championship race.

The odds for the new Big 12 Conference Championship are as follows:

  • Utah: +310
  • Kansas State: +350
  • Kansas: +750
  • Iowa State: +900
  • Texas Tech: +1000
  • Arizona: +1000
  • Oklahoma State: +1100
  • UCF: +1200

  • Colorado: +4000
  • Cincinnati: +6000
  • Arizona State: +10000
  • Houston: +10000
  • BYU: +12000

The addition of teams like Arizona, Colorado, and Arizona State from the PAC-12 adds depth and intrigue to the conference landscape. Kansas State, the reigning 2022 Big 12 Champions, aims to maintain its competitive edge with rising star dual-threat quarterback Avery Johnson leading the charge.

As the season unfolds, fans can expect an exciting race for the Big 12 Conference Championship, with Utah leading the pack and a mix of experienced and new contenders vying for supremacy in the conference.
