Odds To Win Big 12 Tournament: No. 1 Kansas Is The Sizable Betting Favorite

2020 Big 12 Tournament Betting Odds

Sporting a near-flawless conference record with the only blemish being a 67-55 home loss to then-No. 4 Baylor, it should come as no surprise to see the No. 1 nationally ranked Kansas Jayhawks as the team to beat in the Big 12 tournament at the Sprint Center in Kansas City. Oddsmakers have coined Kansas as the favorite with -125 odds to win its third title in five years.

Online sportsbook BetOnline has Kansas as the clear favorite at -125 followed by the Baylor Bears at +200, Texas Tech Red Raiders at +600, West Virginia Mountaineers at +800, Oklahoma Sooners at +1000, Texas Longhorns at +2000, TCU Horned Frogs at +6600, Oklahoma State Cowboys at +8000, Kansas State Wildcats at +12500 and Iowa State Cyclones at +15000.

Be sure to check out our March Madness hub for all your betting information for the conclusion of the college hoops season.

Why Is Kansas the Favorite?

The Jayhawks have just three defeats all season, beginning with their opening game of the year, a 68-66 defeat vs then-No. 4 Duke. They fell in mid-December to then-No. 18 Villanova and lastly endured a mid-January loss to then-No. 4 Baylor. Outside of that, the Jayhawks have 28 victories with the fifth-best average winning margin of +13.3 and are entering the Big 12 tournament on a 16-game winning streak.

Sophomore guard Devon Dotson and seven-foot senior center Udoka Azubuike have been wreaking havoc on opponents. Dotson is averaging 18.1 points, 4.1 boards and four assists per game while Azubuike is averaging a double-double with 13.7 points, 10.5 rebounds and 2.6 blocks per game – oh, and he’s shooting 74.8 percent from the floor on the year. The team’s depth and ability to play big ball or small ball makes them a matchup nightmare for everyone and they will be extremely tough to knock off.

Which Team Is Providing Better Value Than Kansas?

As mentioned above, betting against Kansas may not be a wise decision. But if you’re looking to wager on another team, how about the Baylor Bears (+200), the only Big 12 team to beat Kansas. The Bears had a 23-game winning streak after a 67-64 loss to Washington in their second test of the season and the streak included that 67-55 triumph over Kansas at Allen Fieldhouse.

Baylor stumbles into the tournament somewhat, though, as Kansas avenged that loss in late February in Waco, and the squad has gone just 2-3 through its last five games. Defense has been the key to victory for the Bears, who are limiting opponents to just 60.1 points per game, the fifth-fewest in the nation. Offensively, the squad is led by sophomore guard Jared Butler and junior guard MaCio Teague, who combine to average 29.9 points per game and shoot over 35 percent from beyond the arc. This team knocked off Kansas once and perhaps can do it again. At +200, it might be worth a little sprinkle for Baylor to win the Big 12 tournament.
