2024-25 Big 12 Football Championship Game Winner Odds

The college football landscape is looking vastly different ahead of the 2024 season. The Big 12 is one of the conferences undergoing big changes as Texas and Oklahoma departed for the SEC while Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado, and Utah are joining the conference. Don't forget that BYU, Cincinnati, Houston, and UCF were also new additions to the Big 12 for the 2023 season.

This conference championship game will likely look a lot different, especially with major brands like Texas and Oklahoma leaving. With the regular season kicking off in about three months, which teams are early favorites to win the 2024 Big 12 Championship Game?

Let's check out FanDuel Sportsbook's college football odds and circle the most promising bets.

Kansas State (+350)

Losing Texas and Oklahoma certainly causes a shakeup as each team was consistently contending for Big 12 titles. Texas won their first Big 12 championship since 2009 last season. Oklahoma dominated from 2015 to 2020, winning six consecutive championship games.

One of the conference's recent champions is firmly in the mix for 2024. Kansas State won a share of the conference title in 2012 and won it in 2003. In 2022, the Wildcats won their first Big 12 championship in 10 years. KSU remained competitive last season, finishing with a 9-4 season while tying for the fourth-best conference record at 6-3.

Following conference realignment, Kansas State has the tools to win another Big 12 title. The Wildcats' offense will likely feature a new style as leading receivers Ben Sinnott and Phillip Brooks have moved on, and quarterback Will Howard transferred to Ohio State.

The future is still bright as Avery Johnson showed plenty of promise as a true freshman in 2023, making eight appearances while winning MVP of the Pop-Tarts Bowl. Running back DJ Giddens also returns after posting 1,226 rushing yards in 2023. The Wildcats should have an exceptional run game with Giddens and Johnson's dual-threat legs.

Kansas State should be towards the top of the Big 12 in 2024. According to FanDuel's college football win total odds, the Wildcats are +114 to go over 9.5 wins.

Utah (+350)

Utah is one of the major additions to the conference. The Utes won the Pac-12 in 2021 and 2022, but it was a down year in 2023 with an 8-5 record. Injuries played a major role in the sudden decline.

The Utes have as much experience as anyone in the conference. Cam Rising is returning for his fifth season at Utah after missing 2023 with a knee injury. Rising provided exceptional QB play in 2021 and 2022, which included throwing for over 3,000 passing yards in his most recent season.

Rising also has a top target returning in Brant Kuithe, who missed all of 2023 due to injury. Prior to the 2022 season, Kuithe was drawing some NFL Draft buzz. However, he has not played since the middle of the 2022 season due to a torn ACL.

Running back Micah Bernard is also expected to be healthy after he appeared in only two games last season. He logged over 500 rushing yards in the 2021 and 2022 seasons.

You know what you're getting with coach Kyle Whittingham's teams. They are tough and gritty squads that play sound defense. The key to 2024 will be the roster's health. Injuries were too much to overcome in 2023. Will the Utes return to being conference champions with a healthy offense that's loaded with experience?

FanDuel is favoring over 9.5 wins (-132) for Utah. This suggests that the Utes should be a better team than Kansas State in 2024, making the +350 odds to win the Big 12 an excellent value.

Kansas (+650)

Kansas is a very interesting team to watch. Of course, the Jayhawks have rarely been relevant when it comes to college football. However, coach Lance Leipold has done an excellent job with Kansas.

The Jayhawks have enjoyed a constant climb under Leipold. They went 2-10 in his first season in 2021, followed by 6-7 in 2022, and 9-4 last season. For context, 9-4 was Kansas' best record since going 12-1 in 2007 under Mark Mangino.

This team has never won the Big 12 and has not won a conference championship since 1968. The Jayhawks have a chance to make history in 2024 thanks to a wide-open conference. Plus, the roster is returning key players, such as quarterback Jalon Daniels, running back Devin Neal, and First-Team All-Conference cornerback Cobee Bryant.

Similar to Utah, staying healthy will have a big role as Daniels played in only three games last season.


Along with the Utes, Arizona is another new member worth watching. This program was on the uptick after finishing 10-3 last season. However, coach Jedd Fisch left for the Washington job, and the Wildcats hired Brent Brennan, who was 7-6 at San Jose State last year. Quarterback Noah Fifita and wide receiver Tetairoa McMillan should be one of the best duos in the nation, but I'm not sure if Arizona will have the coaching to win the Big 12 (+750).

Texas Tech (+1000) and Iowa State (+1000) are familiar faces in the Big 12. The Cyclones could be the sleeper with the most returning production in the nation at 86%, according to ESPN's Bill Connelly. Iowa State had the best defense in the conference last season and returns All-Conference safety Jeremiah Cooper and leading tackle Beau Freyler. The offense made some strides late in the season with quarterback Rocco Becht at the helm, and the entire offensive line and top receivers will be back in action.

We should expect plenty of parity in the Big 12. This conference is truly wide open. I have three major takeaways about the Big 12 title race. First off, Arizona would have been my favorite pick if Fisch did not leave for Washington. Utah looks like the best bet right now, but much of this depends on the roster's health. The best sleeper is likely Iowa State due to returning experience.
