For the past few seasons, the Pac-12 has been the worst of the Power 5 Conferences. Nobody has taken the Pac-12 seriously because no team has proven it can hang with the top squads in the SEC, the Big Ten, and even the Big 12. This season, things should turn around for the Pac. Without even playing a down, Lincoln Riley has made USC one of the best squads in the nation. Check out five fearless college football betting predictions for the Pac-12 so you can plan your bets against the NCAAF Odds.
5 Fearless College Football Betting Predictions for the Pac-12
2022 NCAAF College Football Season
- When: August 27, 2022 – Dec. 10, 2022
Oregon loses at least four regular season games
Oregon couldn’t keep Mario Cristobal happy. The former Ducks’ coach decided to head to Miami.
Losing Cristobal is a big deal because Mario turned down a massive contract. Oregon will struggle this season. The Ducks open their season against Georgia, which should be a loss.
The Ducks should lose four games for sure. Don’t be surprised if Oregon loses five.
In the battle of the Arizonas, U-of-A ends up with a better record than ASU
The total for Arizona this season is 2.5. What it means is that most believe the Wildcats lose almost all their games.
Those sentiments make sense. Arizona won a single game last season. Ah, but the Wildcats boast the 26-ranked recruiting class this year.
26may not seem great, but it gives Arizona a shot to easily eclipse the 3 win mark. In addition, the schedule isn’t daunting. The road games are at Cal, at Utah, at UCLA, and at Washington.
Save for Utah, U-of-A will have a shot to win all of those games. If Arizona’s freshman step up, the Wildcats will end the season with a better record than rival Arizona State.
Utah bounces off a great season with a one-loss season
The Utah Utes surprised everyone with a fantastic 2021. Utah was on the cusp of upsetting Ohio State and winning the Rose Bowl.
Most believe Utah takes a step back in 2022. The Utes will, but it won’t be much of a backward step.
Utah opens the season versus Florida. If Kyle Whittingham’s squad manages a win, the Utes will end up losing a single game, versus USC on Oct. 15.
If the Gators beat the Utes, Utah will lose two games during the season. In any case, Utah figures to play in the Rose Bowl again.
Neither Washington nor Stanford wins enough games for more than a pitiful low-level bowl bid
Washington and Stanford will both win enough games to attract bowl bids. But neither will dominate enough to play on January first.
In fact, expect Washington and Stanford to finish third and fourth, maybe even fifth and sixth, in the Pac-12. Good enough to play in a bowl. Not good enough to play in a meaningful bowl.
USC goes undefeated, garners a CFP berth, and wins the National Championship
Utah will make a second straight Rose Bowl trip because the USC Trojans will go undefeated, grab a College Football Playoff berth, and beat Alabama in the National Championship.
Yes, the Trojans are that good. USC landed the crème de la crème of college coaches when Lincoln Riley decided to call it quits at Oklahoma to rebuild the Trojans’ program.
Riley immediately attracted 5-star players to transfer to SoCal, including Oklahoma quarterback Caleb Williams. USC is an instant football power. The Trojans will not only win the Pac-12, but they will win the 2022 title.
