Pac-12 Conference Outlook: Oregon Leads On The Field

  • The Oregon Ducks have +250 odds as the favorite to win the Pac-12.
  • The Washington Huskies have the same +110 odds as Oregon to win the Pac-12 North.
  • The USC Trojans have a slightly shorter betting line than the rest of the Pac-12 South.

EUGENE, Ore. – Of all the conferences in the country, the sportsbooks seem to believe the Pac-12 is the least predictable. This means that the Pac-12 is thus the conference with the most value to bet on in all of college football.

Pac-12 North: Oregon and Washington Favored

The Oregon Ducks failed to qualify for the Pac-12 Championship in 2020, but after the Washington Huskies had to pull out due to COVID-19 issues, the Ducks took their place and beat the USC Trojans to be named Pac-12 Champions. Online sportsbooks favor Oregon to qualify the old fashion way again in 2021, but aren’t very confident in it.

PAC-12 North Division 21/22

  • Oregon +110
  • Washington +110
  • Stanford +800
  • Washington State +1000
  • California +2000
  • Oregon State +3300

As Oregon looks to win their third straight conference championship, they will be doing so with a new quarterback after Tyler Shough transferred to Texas Tech. The Ducks are bringing in the No. 6 recruiting class in the country per 247 and had the most four-star recruits (19) of any other team in the nation.

Pac-12 South: USC Narrow Favorites Over ASU, Utah

USC has won the Pac-12 South in three of the last six seasons and is favored to do so once again in 2021. Although, the competition is not too far behind, at least according to the college football betting sites.

PAC-12 South Division Winner 21/22

  • USC +175
  • Arizona State +225
  • Utah +225
  • UCLA +600
  • Colorado +1600
  • Arizona +6600

USC has Kedon Slovis at quarterback who is the 10th choice for Heisman (+2200) and has the shortest odds of any Pac-12 player. The Arizona State Sun Devils and Utah Utes are close behind USC, but surely have an uphill climb.

Pac-12 Conference Winner Betting Odds

With plus-value odds for the favorite in each division of the conference, it’s likely no surprise that the favorite to win the conference as a whole is well into the plus money on sports betting sites.

PAC-12 Conference Winner 21/22

  • Oregon +250
  • Washington +350
  • USC +400
  • Arizona State +450
  • Utah +600
  • UCLA +1200

As there are multiple teams with generous odds, bettors could decide to spread wagers out across multiple teams in an attempt to secure a lesser profit while covering a wider basis. However, bettors should note that since the conference championship game was established, the North division has won nine of the 10 conference championships with the 2017 USC team being the only exception.

National Championship Contenders

The Pac-12 isn’t necessarily the strongest conference in the country, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t a couple of National Championship hopefuls. The conference doesn’t have any of the top 10 options for a national title, but Oregon and USC aren’t too far out of the picture.

Pac-12 Team’s National Championship Odds

  • Oregon +5000
  • USC +6000
  • Utah +10000
  • Arizona State +12500
  • UCLA +12500
  • Washington +15000

The most notable outlier here is Washington. The Huskies are given the same chance to win the Pac-12 North as Oregon, and are the second choice in conference championship odds but are much further down the odds board for national title aspirations.
