Big 12 North is Wide Open Online Sport Betting

December 1, 2010 Sports Betting

Online sport betting has seen a lot of ups and downs already in the Big 12 North this sportsbetting season.

The early leader in online sport betting in the conference is Kansas State but they are not the favorites at the sportsbook. That role at the online sportsbook still belongs to Kansas and Nebraska.

Online sport betting has seen the defending Big 12 North champs Missouri start the conference season at 0-2. They are the only team in the Big 12 North to be winless. "It certainly looks like it’s going to be a wild, wild race, no question," Kansas coach Mark Mangino said, "I don’t think you can discount anybody in the conference. … For us, we’ve got to win as they come and let that stuff figure itself out at the end." Kansas State went from getting blown out at Texas Tech by 52 points to winning by 48 over Texas A&M in sportsbetting. "It probably tells us we’re a little goofy and that we have no idea of where we are and who we are," K-State coach Bill Snyder said. Kansas State now goes to Colorado and that is no bargain either as the Buffaloes upset Kansas last week in online sport betting. Missouri doesn’t have any help this week either as they host #3 Texas in sportsbetting. "We knew going into this it was going to be tough," Missouri coach Gary Pinkel said. "There’s a lot left in the season, a lot of things are going to happen. It will be interesting to see how all that works out." Iowa State has even won a game in the conference although they probably won’t make it two in a row as they visit Nebraska this online sport betting week.

In the other half of the Big 12 it is Texas leading the way in online sport betting since they beat Oklahoma. The Sooners are still strong though and are not out of the running in sportsbetting, even without Heisman Trophy quarterback Sam Bradford. "It isn’t like we’re not competing, it isn’t like we’re out of it," head coach Bob Stoops said. "The confidence level, (players) see they’re not far off in making a play or two to being what these other teams are." The Sooners may have lost three games this online sport betting season at the online sportsbook but only one of them was in the Big 12.
