There are countless sports betting opportunities to take advantage of during a typical Big 12 football season and this year was no exception. Sports betting on the Big 12 championship game featured some bizarre factors in the matchup between Oklahoma and Missouri. Oklahoma was a large online sports betting favorite of 16 points.
As it turned out it was a sports betting bargain! Oklahoma had been an absolute sports betting powerhouse during the regular season with 9 payoffs in 11 games on the board this season.
After their upset sports betting to Texas, 35-45, as 7 point favorites the Sooners went on a sports betting rampage in which they got the cash in 5 of their last 6 games heading into the title match with Mizzou in Kansas City.
Smart handicappers knew that OU had to run the table big in order to improve their BCS rankings as that head to head loss to Texas would be significant. Sports betting angles can often come from unusual places and Oklahoma provided an excellent way to get the cash as they went over the total in 10 out of 11 regular season games.
Those handicapping the online sports betting over/under numbers would quickly pick up on the fact that OU was a solid over candidate as they were ranked 3rd overall on offense but were ranked a mediocre 65th overall on defense.
Mizzou made for a solid sports betting “over” team as well with their 6th ranked offense and horrific 102nd ranked defense. Put these two teams together on the same field and it would seem as if there were not a sports betting over/under number large enough to post on the board.
When the over/under sports betting number of 78.5 was posted, few bothered to blink. OU had scored at least 50 points in 5 consecutive games heading into their matchup with Mizzou.
Add to the fact that Oklahoma and their explosive offense would be up against that leaky MU defense and you could see where the sports betting line was actually a bargain to bang hard. Oklahoma blasted Mizzou 62-21 easily getting the cash as the game soared over the total in a great lesson on value.
