Big 12 men’s basketball betting 2022-23: favorites, crosses and more

Adam Flagler (guard) – Baylor Bears

Since his arrival in Waco, Adam Flager has seen his role and responsibilities increase over the seasons. He was a contributing role player off the bench during Baylor’s National Championship winning season (2020-21), averaging 9.1 points in 22.8 minutes per game. Last season, he entered the starting lineup and became the team’s leading scorer (13.8 points per game). And now he’s set to become a Big 12 Player of the Year nominee in his senior season. Be sure to tune in to see how he fills it out from three and maybe how he develops as a point guard in what should be another NCAA Tournament deep run for the Bears.

Grant Sherfield (guard) – Oklahoma Sooners

Grant Sherfield has been one of the best and most fun point guards to watch in college basketball. He really hit the national college basketball scene in the 2020-21 season with Nevada, but the Wolf Pack underperformed significantly last season, which knocked Sherfield out of the spotlight. But, now he’s in Oklahoma and the Big 12 where a lot of eyes will be on him. Yours should definitely be too.

Gradey Dick (guard) – Kansas Jayhawks

So Kansas wins a national championship and then brings in one of the top rookies in the high school class of 2022. That must be nice.

Gradey Dick’s transition to the college game is already going well. He is as fluid as possible and has some variety in how he puts the ball into the basket – the jumper is efficient, there are no unnecessary movements when attacking the rebound and he will always find his way towards the edge in transition. Just another talented kid coming into Lawrence that Bill Self will groom and play winning basketball.

Timmy Allen (forward) – Texas Longhorns

Texas fell short of expectations last season, and if they are to bounce back in 2022-23, Timmy Allen’s play will be critical. In his second year at Texas, Allen needs to show off his all-around game that made him one of the best transfers in the country after his three seasons at Utah. I think we get that version of Allen as the season progresses.
