Full List of Odds To Win The Big 12 Tournament Can Be Found Below

The 2011 Big XII Tournament kicks off this week, and there are still a ton of teams that could be dancing their way into the NCAA Tournament or falling flat on their faces with disgusting defeats. Check out the high flyers that we expect to see do some real damage this week in the Big 12 Tournament!

We’re really not sure that we can lay these types of NCAA basketball odds, but it is clear that the favorite to win this event is the Kansas Jayhawks (2 to 1 Odds to Win Big 12 Tournament at BetUS Sportsbook). Kansas is a remarkable team with remarkable talent, and there is no doubt that, regardless of who the opponent is, it will be favored, and at least by a few points in every game. Even Texas, a team that is relatively comparable to the Jayhawks this season, would surely be dogs to Rock Chalk because of the level of revenge that the Jayhawks would love to exact from that defeat that snapped the 70 game winning streak at Allen Fieldhouse.

The teams that we’ll be keeping the closest eyes on this week are the Colorado Buffaloes (12 to 1 Big 12 Tournament Odds at BetUS Sportsbook), the Nebraska Cornhuskers (30 to 1 Big 12 Tournament Lines at BetUS Sportsbook), and the Baylor Bears (15 to 1 2011 Big 12 Tournament Odds at BetUS Sportsbook). These are the three teams with the most on the line this week, as they all need at least a win or two more to get into the NCAA Tournament. All three will be favorites in their first round games, and all should really advance. However, the difference here is the varying degree of difficulties of those next games. All three know that they will have gotten some huge wins if they can get into the semis of this event, but when push comes to shove, we don’t foresee any team coming out of the woodwork on Wednesday to win this event on Saturday.

Be very wary of the damage that the Texas A&M Aggies (6 to 1 Big 12 Tournament Lines at BetUS Sportsbook) can do in this tournament. A&M has quietly been one of the better teams in the Big XII this season, and it knows that it probably has the easiest draw to get into the finale. Sure, the opening game of the tournament for it against likely Missouri should be tough, but the Aggies have dominated that series in recent seasons, winning seven straight. From there, it’ll probably be a date with a struggling Baylor team or a slumping bunch of Longhorns, and then it would be into the finale. We love the way that this draw sets up, and we wouldn’t be surprised if Texas A&M ended up stealing this one from all of the rest of the big boys in this conference.
