Big 12 Coaches Against The Spread: Ranked From Best To Worst. Who Covers?

  • by

How good are all of the Big 12 head coaches against the spread? Going from best to worst, here’s who covers and who doesn’t.

How do all of the Big 12 head coaches do against the spread, and on the road ATS, and going over on the point total?

If you like to invest, here’s the breakdown of eight of the ten head coaches – Oklahoma’s Brent Venables and Texas Tech’s Joey McGuire are in their first seasons. One important note, with a few exceptions from the first year coaches who switched gigs, these stats reflect how all the coaches have done on their current Big 12 teams.

Who covers – and sometimes more importantly – who doesn’t?
