The Bovada Online Sportsbook recently released their odds on the upcoming season for the NFL and College Football and the Oregon Ducks start with 7/1 odds to win the 2014 National Title. There are two teams ahead of Oregon with Florida State and Alabama tied at 5/2 favorites. UCLA is the next closest Pac-12 team on the list at 14/1 followed by USC at 25/1. The Oregon Ducks will meet the Michigan State Spartans in Week 2 of the regular season and their odds at a National Title is also set at 25/1 to begin the season.
Bovada even breaks down the odds of winning the Pac-12 Championship and right now I would not put my money on either California or Colorado, both at 200/1. Of course you could if you wanted to – you would make an absolute killing.
My odds are closer to home with the Oregon Ducks, who are the favorite right now at 11/10. The UCLA Bruins are next closest in line at 3/1 followed by USC at 5/1 and believe it or not the Stanford Cardinal at 6/1 to win the Pac-12 Championship. When it comes to the Pac-12 Divisional breakdowns between North and South, UCLA and Oregon win out.
The Bruins are 3/2 in the South and Oregon is set at 1/2 in the North. Also in the North Stanford is slated at 3/1 to win the Division with Washington at 6/1. In the South Division USC and Arizona State at at 2/1 with Arizona at 10/1.
Bovada not only broke down the Pac-12, but other conferences as well and sees Florida State a 4/1 favorite to win the ACC Championship. Of course it is likely that Oregon and Florida State will be chasing each other all season long.
The Oregon Ducks begin the 2014 campaign hosting South Dakota on Saturday, August 30th at 7:30pm Pacific Time. The game will be broadcast on Pac-12 Networks.
