The California Bears and Wahington Huskies are listed at a distant 3rd at 20-1 according to Pac-12 picks experts in Vegas. Our college football picks experts took a closer look at the odds to win the Pac-12 Conference 2012 along with our Pac-12 picks to finish.
1. USC 5-9 (Odds To Win Pac-12 Conference 2012)
QB Matt Barkley turned down millions in the NFL and his heavy acclaim is warranted. Barkley is blanketed by a great O-line and the back seven on defense is among the best in the country and they return 16 starters.
2. Oregon 9-4
Oregon must travel to USC to cash in on the odds to win Pac-12 conference 2012 and that is a tough nut to break. The Ducks lose their starting QB and top rusher but the talent is still there to make a run for a National title if they can win in the hostile confines at USC. RB De’Anthony Thomas is one of the most electrifying players in the nation and could challenge for a Heisman Trophy.
3. Stanford 25-1
If value is your thing than getting Stanford at 25-1 is a steal. The Cardinals are being written off by most Pac-12 picks critics because they lose Andrew Luck but the schedule lines up well for them and they have no true weakness.
4. UCLA 40-1
The Bruins have value at the long 40-1 number. Jim Mora Jr. is the new head coach but the talent left behind by the old regime is solid. Unfortunately a play on UCLA is most likely a burned ticket without enough punch on offense.
