This is the second year that the top two teams in the Big 12 standings will face off a second time at the end of the season for the championship. Last year, Oklahoma beat TCU 41-17 at AT&T Stadium.
The Horned Frogs (+650) are the third favorite, followed by Oklahoma State (+800), West Virginia (+800) and Iowa State (+2500). Kansas brings up the rear at +8000.
