Big 12 Betting Guide for September 18

Baylor +21

HSJ Pick: Baylor

Reason: Baylor might win this game outright. Usually, even the worst team in a power conference is better than the second or third best team in one of those small conferences. Take the Bears.

Baylor 34
TCU 27

Texas A&M -28

HSJ Pick: Florida

Reason: Without a quarterback, Florida won’t be able to win on the road. However, this game should be much closer than four touchdowns.

Texas A&M 35
Florida 17

Colorado -11

HSJ Pick: Hawaii

Reason: Historically, PAC 10 schools have trouble winning on the Island. The Rainbow Warriors will cover the spread.

Colorado 28
Hawaii 20

Kansas State -4
Iowa State

HSJ Pick: Kansas State

Reason: Seriously, this line is a little off. We expect Kansas State to win going away. Iowa State has lost to a Big 10 school. Their season is over.

KSU 42
Iowa State 13

Mizzou -14
San Diego State

HSJ Pick: Mizzou

Reason: Mizzou will take this week to work on their running game and take the pressure off their quarterback. It will work against San Diego State, but may not work once conference play begins.

Mizzou 23

Nebraska -3

HSJ Pick: Washington

Reason: The Huskies will pull away from the Huskers in the second half. The difference? One team has a quarterback, and one team doesn’t.

Huskies 34
Huskers 12

Oklahoma -17
Air Force

HSJ Pick: Oklahoma

Reason: Like Baylor, Oklahoma is playing a school from a minor conference and should win handily.

Oklahoma 45
AFA 10

Oklahoma State -7

HSJ Pick: Tulsa

Tulsa wins this one late. Gundy’s ship has sailed.

Tulsa 28
OSU 27

Kansas +4
Southern Miss

HSJ Pick: Kansas

After a disastrous first week, Kansas has rebounded nicely. Turner Gill looks like he has the team’s attention. We believe he threw the first game on purpose to get his team’s attention.

Kansas 24
Southern Miss 17

Texas -3.5
Texas Tech

With Tech’s new veer offense, this game will come down to field position and the kicking game. Take Tech to cover the spread, but the Horns will win by a field goal.

Texas 6
Texas Tech 3
