The Westgate Las Vegas Superbook released a ton of new odds for the upcoming college football season on Sunday. Included in the release were odds for the following: 2017 Regular Season win totals, Games of the Year, Conference Championships, and updated odds to win the 2018 College Football National Championship game.
After winning the Pac-12 South Division and notching their first 10-win season since 2001, the Buffs regular season win total for 2017 was set at seven. Among the seven Pac-12 teams listed, only Utah’s win total (6 ½) was lower. USC’s over/under was listed at 10 ½ wins, the highest total of any Pac-12 school. While the defending Pac-12 Champion Washington Huskies total was set at 10. In-state rival Colorado State’s win total was set at 7 ½. The Buffs defeated the Rams 44-7 in last year’s edition of the Rocky Mountain Showdown, and will open this season against them on Friday, September 1.
Westgate Las Vegas Superbook also set betting lines for six of Colorado’s regular-season games, only one of which the Buffs are favored. Despite playing at Folsom Field, the Buffs are nine and a half point underdogs versus the Huskies in a rematch of last year’s Pac-12 Championship game on September 23rd. The following week the Buffs travel to Pasadena where they are seven point underdogs against UCLA. After hosting Arizona (October 7) and then facing Oregon State in Corvallis (October 14), the Buffs will be in Pullman for a matchup against the Cougars on October 21st where they are also seven point underdogs. The Buffs then host California in a homecoming matchup on October 28th before heading to Tempe on November 4th where they are favored by one point over the Sun Devils. The Westgate Las Vegas Superbook sees the game versus USC in Boulder on November 11th as the most lopsided contest for Colorado. The Buffs find themselves 14-point underdogs against the Trojans, a team they have never beaten (0-11 all-time vs. USC). After a week off, CU closes out the regular season at Utah where they are listed as three point dogs.
As far as the conference goes, the Buffaloes and Utes are both 40-to-1 odds to win the Pac-12. USC is the favorite at even money, followed by Washington at 9-to-5. Stanford is listed at 5-to-1, UCLA 8-to-1, and Washington State and Oregon both 15-to-1. Behind Colorado and Utah are Arizona State at 60-to-1, Oregon State and Arizona at 100-to-1, and California bringing up the rear at 500-to-1 odds to win the Pac-12.
After opening at 60-to-1 on January 7th, the Buffs are now listed at 200-to-1 odds to win the 2018 College Football Championship game. Alabama is the favorite at 5-to-2 odds, followed by Ohio State at 3-to-1 and USC at 7-to-1.
