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

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.
