Pac-12 football betting odds for 2017 find the USC Trojans as the team best positioned within the conference to claim a national championship.
The Pac-12 is out to prove its legitimacy in 2017 by snagging its first-ever College Football Playoff trophy. In 2015, the Oregon Ducks came close but fell short to Ohio State. And this past season, the Washington Huskies were taken down by Alabama.
But when it comes to next season, we have a much clearer look at the Pac-12 football teams vying for the national championship, as betting odds have been released — only a day after Clemson beat the Crimson Tide, 35-31.
Coming in as the most likely to bring a title to the Pac-12 is Clay Helton’s Trojans (17/2). While USC’s archrival, UCLA, sits with the third-best chance to win it all (55/1), it’s Washington who stands between them (45/1).
Of course, all three powerhouse programs will be led by their own star-studded quarterbacks. Sam Darnold has a breakout season for the Trojans, and he’ll go up against Josh Rosen for the first time next season. Rosen was sidelined with a shoulder injury the last time UCLA and USC met. Meanwhile, the Huskies hope rising junior Jake Browning can take another step forward in his development, as Chris Petersen is looking to get back into the CFP.
Here are the complete odds for all Pac-12 teams to bring home the 2017 title in college football.
