The Big 12 is going to be fun this season as the conference is loaded with talent. Oddsmakers have Kansas, the defending national champions, as slight favorites, but Baylor, the champions from two seasons ago, are right on their tail. Texas, a team with high expectations in all sports, is the third head in this three-horse race.
Texas Tech and TCU also have high preseason expectations, the highest in TCU history, as they are both under 10/1 and would not shock anyone to win the Big 12.
The bottom five teams are quite bad, but they will still cause some problems on their home court.
In the national landscape, Kansas (6), Baylor (7), and Texas (9) are all in sportsbook’s top-10 to win the National Championship.

Big 12 Conference History
The Big 12 was formed in 1996 and its teams have participated in the Big 12 Men’s Basketball Tournament since 1997. The tournament is a single-elimination tournament lasting four rounds. Of the ten teams in the conference, the top six earn a first-round bye leaving the bottom four to play for the last two seeds. The tournament winner earns a berth in the annual NCAA Division 1 Men’s Basketball tournament.
Kansas has been the conference’s dominant force with 12 Big 12 tournament wins in 15 appearances. Iowa State is 5-0 in their five championship games including their upset win over Kansas in 2019. Oklahoma has won three of its five championship games while Missouri has won two of their four. Conversely, Texas has failed to win in any of its six championship game appearances.
Since 2006, only Kansas (9), Iowa State (4), Missouri (2), and Texas (1) have won the Big 12 Men’s Basketball Tournament. Kansas is understandably getting a lot of respect from bookmakers entering the 2022-23 season. The Big 12 is home to the last two National Champions – Baylor in 2021 and Kansas last season.
