Wisdom Of The Crowds: Week Seven

New, comments

It's times like these when I almost think I should be asking you for odds. Like, "I say there's a 70% chance Oklahoma beats Texas." Because when you are forced to go all-in on one team or another, we get fun results like Oklahoma getting 94% of the vote over Texas and Mizzou getting 98% of the vote on a road trip to Kansas State. Obviously that doesn't mean there's a 98% chance Mizzou wins that game, but ... hey ... democracy in action.

Week Six Results:

  • Texas A&M (64%) > Texas Tech by 7
  • Baylor (85%) > Iowa State by 12
  • Oklahoma (94%) > Texas by 14
  • Missouri (98%) > Kansas State by 14
  • Oklahoma State (98%) by Kansas by 28

So we head into mid-October with three teams tied for the conference lead. Two are to be expected; the third? Probably not so much. But there Baylor is. I guess that's to be expected when you start with KSU and @ISU, eh?

Week seven features one marquee game: OSU at Texas. And really, I guess you could call Baylor at A&M "marquee" too.
