Baylor vs. Oklahoma 2012: Sooners favored to win big

Cooper Neill

The Oklahoma Sooners are 19 1/2-point favorites to beat the Baylor Bears this weekend.

All of the Baylor Bears' losses in the 2012 season have come to Big 12 opponents, and that trend is expected to continue Saturday when the Bears hit the road to take on the Oklahoma Sooners, who opened as 19 1/2-point favorites at home, according to the odds provided by Odds Shark.

It's expected to be a high-scoring affair, as Big 12 games tend to be. The over/under is set for 77. Baylor still leads the nation in passing yards per game with 392.1, but the defense continues to be abysmal, especially giving up yards through the air. With 326.6 yards-per-game allowed, Baylor's defense ranks 115th in the nation, and they'll be facing Oklahoma's 16th-ranked passing game on Saturday.

Both teams are coming off in-conference wins. Oklahoma topped Iowa State 35-20 last Saturday while Baylor got its first Big 12 win of the season, 41-14, over Kansas.

Baylor (4-4, 1-4 Big 12) and Oklahoma (6-2, 4-1) kick off at 2:30 p.m. CT on Saturday in Norman, Okla.
