Oklahoma is the overwhelming favorite in the Big 12, at least when it comes to preseason odds.

Bovada released its preseason conference title odds Wednesday and the Sooners are 2-3 favorites to win the Big 12. Oklahoma is the only school among the conferences with odds to give a return less than the original bet.

Houston is listed as a 1-1 favorite to win the AAC while Clemson is a 3-2 favorite to win the ACC. Alabama (7-4) and Stanford (3-1) are the favorites in the SEC and Pac-12.

And in a circumstance that’s fitting of the Michigan-Ohio State rivalry, the two are co-favorites for the Big Ten at 7-4.

While Oklahoma is the biggest favorite among all teams to win its conference, the biggest longshot also resides in the Big 12. And yes, it’s Kansas. If you’re feeling frisky, the Jayhawks provide 250-1 odds to win the conference.
