LAS VEGAS - The college football season is just a few weeks in and there have already been some massive upsets and surprise contenders established. Some of the movements in betting lines may interest sports bettors.

ACC Conference Odds: Clemson Remains No. 1

The Clemson Tigers have already suffered a loss this season but did so out of conference. The ACC in general has had a tough season thus far and the betting odds with online sportsbooks reflect a conference without a real contender besides the Tigers.

ACC Conference Odds

  • Clemson Tigers -625
  • Miami Hurricanes +1400
  • Virginia Tech Hokies +1500
  • North Carolina Tar Heels +1500
  • Pittsburgh Panthers +3500
  • NC State Wolfpack +4500
  • Virginia Cavaliers +4500

The biggest movers are the Virginia Cavaliers who jumped from +9000 to +4500 and the North Carolina Tar Heels who moved in the opposite direction from +550 to +1500.

Big 12 Conference Odds: Oklahoma Reigns Supreme

The Oklahoma Sooners got back on track with a 76-0 victory in Week 2 and are still considered the top dog in the Big 12.

Big 12 Conference Odds

  • Oklahoma Sooners -245
  • Iowa State Cyclones +600
  • Texas Longhorns +725
  • TCU Horned Frogs +1500
  • Oklahoma State Cowboys +1700

Both the Iowa State Cyclones and Texas Longhorns suffered out-of-conference losses in Week 2 and saw their odds head slightly in the wrong direction. OU saw their odds get shorter in response to these teams' woes.

Big Ten Conference Odds: Ohio State Losing Ground

The Ohio State Buckeyes lost a big game to the Oregon Ducks but college football betting sites still give the team an edge in the conference, although the gap is closing in.

Big Ten Conference Odds

  • Ohio State Buckeyes -165
  • Iowa Hawkeyes +450
  • Penn State Nittany Lions +600
  • Wisconsin Badgers +1100
  • Michigan Wolverines +2000

The Iowa Hawkeyes have one of the better resumes in college football and have closed a ton of ground over the last two weeks. The Penn State Nittany Lions are also firmly in contention.

Pac-12 Conference Odds: Oregon’s Line Cut In Half

The Oregon Ducks beat Ohio State in one of the biggest wins of the season. Before the week started, Oregon was sitting at +300 but have since seen their odds get shortened by a significant margin.

Pac-12 Conference Odds

  • Oregon Ducks +170
  • Arizona State +400
  • UCLA Bruins +475
  • Utah Utes +488
  • Washinton Huskies +1100
  • USC Trojans +1400
  • Stanford Cardinals +2500

SEC Conference Odds: Alabama And Georgia Battle For The Top

The SEC seems to be a two-team race between the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Georgia Bulldogs. Sports betting sites list the two programs far above the rest in the conference.

SEC Conference Odds

  • Alabama Crimson Tide -175
  • Georgia Bulldogs +175
  • Texas A&M Aggies +2150
  • Florida Gators +2350
  • Kentucky Wildcats +4500

The Kentucky Wildcats are one of the big movers as they were sitting around +6500 a week ago but even with all the line movement, no team is coming close to the Georgia and Alabama figures.
