NCAA Conference Odds Movement After Week 3 Of The Season

  • The Clemson Tigers have seen their line come down as far as -425 after their recent struggles.
  • The Penn State Nittany Lions continue to close the gap on the Ohio State Buckeyes in the Big Ten.
  • The Oregon Ducks are the only favorites with plus-value betting odds in the Power 5 conferences.

LAS VEGASCollege football varies heavily on a week-to-week basis. One loss can change the outlook of an entire season and as such, the odds for which teams will win their conferences change pretty frequently.

ACC Conference Odds: Clemson’s Lead Continues To Narrow

The Clemson Tigers have not looked like a good football team this season. Their offense is averaging just 8.5 points per game against FBS opponents this year. Online sportsbooks have dropped the team’s odds in response to their poor showings.

ACC Conference Odds

  • Clemson Tigers -425
  • North Carolina Tar Heels +600
  • Virginia Tech Hokies +1500
  • Miami Hurricanes +1500
  • Louisville Cardinals +3500
  • Wake Forest +4000

Clemson was at -625 last week before their 14-8 win over Georgia Tech. The North Carolina Tar Heels also made a big jump from +1500 to +600. However, it still seems to be only a few teams who are truly in contention for the ACC title.

Big 12 Conference Odds: Oklahoma’s Lead Thinning

The Oklahoma Sooners have faced a few scares already this season as conference play is approaching. OU is still likely the top team but college football betting sites are closing the gap between Oklahoma and the rest of the conference.

Big 12 Conference Odds

  • Oklahoma Sooners -210
  • Iowa State Cyclones +450
  • Texas Longhorns +650
  • Oklahoma State Cowboys +1400
  • TCU Horned Frogs +1700
  • West Virginia Mountaineers +2600

The Sooners’ odds dropped from about -250 to -210 while the Iowa State Cyclones, Texas Longhorns, and Oklahoma State Cowboys all saw their gap close a little bit. Considering that Oklahoma has won the Big 12 six times in a row, the -210 odds may still be worth betting.

Big 10 Conference Odds: Penn State Closing Ground

The Big 10 has three teams ranked inside of the AP Poll’s top 10 and despite the Ohio State Buckeyes being the lowest of the ranked teams, they have the shortest odds to win the conference.

Big 10 Conference Odds

  • Ohio State Buckeyes -160
  • Penn State Nittany Lions +500
  • Iowa Hawkeyes +550
  • Michigan Wolverines +1000
  • Wisconsin Badgers +1200

The Buckeyes’ odds remained still but the Penn State Nittany Lions have moved into the second spot and have jumped the Iowa Hawkeyes. PSU will play each of the listed teams at some point this season, which makes for an interesting run at the conference championship.

Pac-12 Conference Odds: Oregon Still Has Plus-Money Value

The Oregon Ducks are easily the best team in the Pac-12 this season, yet sports betting sites are still hesitant to label them as sizable favorites to win the conference championship.

Pac-12 Conference Odds

  • Oregon Ducks +125
  • UCLA Bruins +550
  • Arizona State Sun Devils +550
  • USC Trojans +575
  • Utah Utes +575
  • Washington Huskies +1200

Oregon’s line got a little shorter, but the biggest movers are the USC Trojans who moved from +1400 to +575 and now sit right in the hunt with a few other teams. Maybe the team to fade is the Utah Utes as Charlie Brewer has left the program after starting their first three games.

SEC Conference Odds: Alabama And Georgia Continue To Battle

The SEC looks to be dominant once again, having the two top-ranked teams in the country. The apparent list of teams that could win the conference begins and ends with the Alabama Crimson Tide and Georgia Bulldogs.

SEC Conference Odds

  • Alabama Crimson Tide -168
  • Georgia Bulldogs +163
  • Texas A&M Aggies +1700
  • Florida Gators +3250
  • LSU Tigers +4750
  • Kentucky Wildcats +5000

Alabama and Georgia’s odds remain largely unchanged but the Florida Gators saw their odds drop from +2350 after their narrow loss to the Crimson Tide.
