Sooners open as early favorites vs. Baylor; Big 12 and key national betting lines

With the 14-point win, the Oklahoma Sooners covered the spread against the Iowa State Cyclones to move to 3-5 or 3-4-1 against the spread, depending on the lines you looked at. The final number against Kansas was Oklahoma minus-10, and that game ended as a push in the Sooners’ 10-point win.

In week 10, the Oklahoma Sooners host a Baylor Bears team that’s 5-3 against the spread in 2022 and has come on strong of late. It should be a really good game in Norman this weekend.

Elsewhere in the Big 12, TCU has a chance to stay undefeated against the up-and-down Red Raiders, and Oklahoma State has bounce-back potential as they travel to Lawrence to take on Kansas.

The games of the weekend, however, occur in the SEC. Arguably the top two teams in the country will go to battle in Athens when Tennessee travels to take on defending national champion Georgia. In the SEC West, Alabama and LSU will have an important matchup as well. If LSU wins, it will effectively knock the Crimson Tide out of the national title discussion. If Bama wins, they’ll have one more shot to make it to the playoff if they can get to the SEC title game and beat either Georgia or Tennessee.

Clemson puts their College Football Playoff hopes on the line with a trip to South Bend. Notre Dame has played well of late after struggling early in the season. Will they dash the Tigers’ hopes of returning to the playoff in 2022?

It’s going to be a fun weekend of college football, and here are the betting lines for Oklahoma vs. Baylor, around the Big 12 and key national games.
