The Big 12 has done it again. Texas Tech and Baylor are bringing their high-octane offenses and questionable defenses to Arlington this Saturday causing odds makers to set the over/under at 88.5. That’s not just eye-popping, it’s record-setting. According to the Austin American-Statesman, 88.5 is the highest over/under since 1980, when the business established its database.
For those of you not familiar with just what the over/under is, it’s the betting line for total amount of points scored in a game.
The previous record of was set in 2012 in a game that also featured Baylor as they faced #12 Oklahoma. For what it’s worth, they failed to reach the over as the Sooners beat the bears 42-34.
