2018 NCAA Football Season – Power Five Conference Odds
To be declared a champion of a Power Five Conference (ACC, Big 12, Big Ten, Pac-12, SEC) a team must qualify for the conference championship after finishing the 12-game regular season and then win the championship game. Here are current football betting odds and our breakdown of each conference.
Conference Championship Weekend: November 30 and December 1, 2018
Odds to Win the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC)
2018 ACC Winner – Clemson
2017 ACC Champion: Clemson Tigers
Clemson came into this season having the best odds to win the ACC and are still the clear favorite to win the conference and go on to the 2019 College football playoffs. Trevor Lawrence, the 2018 No.1 QB recruit in the country, just got the nod from head coach Dabo Swinney to become the starting QB after splitting time with Kelly Bryant. Even though Duke, N.C. State, and Syracuse are the only unbeaten teams left in the conference after the first month of play and Clemson barely held on to beat Texas A&M on the road, it’s hard to see them knocking off Clemson, a team loaded with future NFL talent.
Odds to Win the Big 12 Conference
2018 Big 12 Winner – Oklahoma
2017 Big 12 Champion: Oklahoma Sooners
After a month of play, this conference is much more volatile then many experts had predicted since Oklahoma entered the season as the runaway favorite even after losing Heisman Trophy winner QB Baker Mayfield to the draft. However, after Army nearly upset the Sooners at home in overtime, the conference may be for the taking with West Virginia lighting up the scoreboard with Heisman Trophy candidate Will Grier and Texas, after stumbling at the start of the season, looking like they may have finally found their stride. Oklahoma will need more out of QB Kyler Murray in the passing game if they want to defend their Big 12 title.
Odds to Win the Big Ten Conference
2018 Big Ten Winner – Ohio State
2017 Big Ten Champion: Ohio State Buckeyes
Urban Meyer is back on the sidelines coaching the Buckeyes and the team has breezed through their first four games, remaining the favorite to win the conference in the process. However, All-American DE Nick Bosa will be out until November, dealing a huge blow to the Ohio State defense. The Buckeyes biggest challenge of the season thus far will be when they travel to Happy Valley on September 29th to face Penn State. The winner of this game will put themselves in the driver seat to win the Big Ten, and the loser will likely be watching the championship game from home.
Odds to Win the Pacific-12 Conference (Pac-12)
2018 Pac-12 Winner – Washington State
2017 Pac-12 Champion: USC Trojans
Washington and Stanford appear to be in a two-horse race to win the Pac-12 this season. Washington narrowly lost a tough game against Auburn to open the season and Stanford pulled off a miraculous comeback over Oregon on the road after being down 24-7 to remain undefeated. If they can get past a tough road game against Notre Dame, Stanford will travel to Washington on November 11th, and the winner will likely control their destiny in the Pac-12.
Odds to Win the Southeastern Conference (SEC)
2018 SEC Winner – Alabama
2017 SEC Champion: Georgia Bulldogs
The SEC is once again the toughest conference in the country in case any doubters were wondering. Alabama entered the season as the favorites and after the first month, appear to be even better than most people thought with QB Tua Tagovailoa giving head coach Nick Saban an all-around QB who can run and make every throw on the field – something he’s never had since leading the Crimson Tide. The SEC West will be tough to win with Auburn and LSU in the Top 10 as well and both will be the true test for the Tide later in the season. For the East, Georgia appears to be head and shoulders above everyone even with Kentucky shocking college football with upsets over Florida and Mississippi State. Alabama and Georgia were the favorites before the season to make the SEC Championship game and both appear to be on a collision course to do just that.
Preseason Odds to Win the 2018 Heisman Trophy
The Heisman Trophy is awarded at the end of each college football season in early December before the start of the bowl games. It is given to the most outstanding player in college football and is voted on by sports journalists, previous Heisman winners, and one vote is given to the fans. Each vote chooses three players and places them accordingly:
- 1st Place: Awarded 3 points
- 2nd Place: Awarded 2 points
- 3rd Place: Awarded 1 point
The college football player with the most points accumulated from the votes of sports journalists, previous Heisman winners, and fans wins the Heisman Trophy for that season.
2018 Heisman Trophy Winner:
- Kyler Murry (Oklahoma)
