Pac-12 Championship Odds: USC Is The Betting Favorite

A different program has won the Pac-12 football championship each of the last three years. This year, the conference has two ranked teams, Oregon and USC, and it’s the Trojans who are the front-runners in Pac-12 championship odds.

Teams are playing a shortened six-game regular season that began last week, leading up to the championship game set for December 18. If a team goes 6-0 or 5-1, there is a very good chance it will be one of the two teams in the Pac-12 championship game.

USC On Top Of The Oddsboard

The Trojans, the 20th-ranked team in the nation, currently own the best odds to win the Pac-12 championship at +120. USC won its first game, edging out Arizona State 28-27 in dramatic fashion. The Trojans scored two touchdowns in the final three minutes of the fourth quarter, employing an onside kick as part of the stunning comeback.

Quarterback Kedon Slovis threw for 381 yards with two touchdown passes to help guide the Trojans back. It was the first time USC has come back from a deficit of 13 points or more in the fourth quarter since the 2017 Rose Bowl against Penn State.

The Trojans proved they can take any team’s best punch and still find a way to win. In a shortened season in which one loss can make or break the entire year, there’s no room for error. If the Trojans continue to make timely plays on offense and get the necessary stops on defense, then they will set themselves up perfectly to be playing in the Pac-12 championship game.

The Ducks Aren’t Far Behind

For the first time in five years, the Ducks came into a season without quarterback Justin Herbert. His successor, Tyler Shough, looked impressive in his first start against Stanford.

The six-foot-six quarterback was solid in throwing for 227 yards with two total touchdowns and an interception. He got a big contribution from his ground game, which chipped in three rushing scores.

Last year, the Ducks finished 16th nationally in scoring offense at 35.4 points per game, and they produced exactly 35 points in their opening win over Stanford. Head coach Mario Cristobal had his team ready for the first game and he’ll have to replicate it five other times in order to reach the championship game.

Oregon is the 11th-ranked team in the nation and narrowly trails USC on the oddsboard to win the Pac-12 Conference in 2020-21. Of note, the Ducks play four of their six games at home, which should really help benefit their young players, and they don’t have the Trojans on their schedule. Outside of USC, the conference is pretty stunted when it comes to competition.

Riskiest Bet: Arizona State Sun Devils

The Pac-12 odds for the Sun Devils, led by head coach Herm Edwards, are an extremely risky bet at +4000, though they nearly came up with a big road win against the Trojans. Had it not been for a successful onside kick, the Sun Devils would have come away with the win.

They were led by quarterback Jaylen Daniels, who threw for 134 yards and also ran for 111 yards on the ground. If the Sun Devils can continue to play good fundamental football, they will have a chance – albeit a long one – to be playing for the Pac-12 championship at the end of the season.
