With football season fast approaching, FanDuel recently revealed their Big 12 title odds for 2023.
West Virginia, who many rank as the worst team in the conference, was given horrible odds to take the league’s crown.

The Mountaineers were given a +7000 chance to win the Big 12, good enough for 13th out of 14 teams. Newcomer BYU was the only team to rank worse than West Virginia.
If Neal Brown and WVU want to shock the world in 2023, they will be doing so with the literal odds stacked against them. Can they be the Big 12’s dark horse? It remains to be seen. However, the Mountaineers have always done better with the odds stacked against them.
