2013 College Football Win Total Odds
College Football Betting Trends- 2013 Win Total Odds
The 2013 college football season gets underway this week and while both the USA Today Coaches Poll and AP Polls have released their preseason Top 25, we are more concerned with Sportsbook’s futures odds for the projected regular season win total for some of the top teams in the country this year.
To get you ready for the new season, College Football Betting Trends has decided to zero-in on the regular season win total odds for the current favorite to win each of the five major conferences.
Odds to Win Conference: +130
Win Total Odds: OVER 10 (-135) UNDER 10 (+105)
Last season’s ACC title was basically decided early in the season when the Seminoles beat Clemson 49-37 at home on Sept. 22. They went onto to lose to North Carolina and Florida to finish 10-2. This season, they will face the Tigers on the road on Oct. 19 which should once again go a long way towards deciding this season’s ACC Champion. Looking at the rest of Florida State’s schedule, other potential losses loom against Miami and Florida making the UNDER the pick for this team.
Big Ten- Ohio State Buckeyes
Odds to Win Conference: -120
Win Total Odds: OVER 11 (+120) UNDER 11 (-150)
We could very well see a repeat of the Buckeyes’ 12-0 run through the 2012 season including a perfect 8-0 record in conference play as heavy favorites to win the Big Ten this season. There are no real obstacles in the non-conference portion of this year’s schedule and the only tricky road games could be Oct. 5 against Northwestern and their season finale against Michigan on Nov. 30. Take the OVER on this team in another clean sweep.
Big 12- Texas Longhorns
Odds to Win Conference: +175
Win Total Odds: OVER 9.5 (-135) UNDER 9.5 (+105)
The Longhorns are coming off an 8-4 campaign in 2012 that included a very mediocre 5-4 record in Big 12 play. They have been opened as the favorite to win the conference this season, but will still face stiff competition from Oklahoma State, Oklahoma and TCU for this year’s title. Texas gets a break with both the Cowboys and the Sooners at home, but optimism is running a bit high in Austin this year for what looks like a nine-win team.
Pac-12- Oregon Ducks
Odds to Win Conference: +100
Win Total Odds: OVER 11 (+105) UNDER 11 (-135)
The Ducks are expected to remain the crown jewel of the Pac-12 even with former head coach Chip Kelly off to the NFL. The only blemish on last year’s record was a late-season 17-14 overtime loss to Stanford at home. The Cardinal should once again be Oregon’s main obstacle to this year’s Rose Bowl especially with this year’s game being played at Stanford, but with home games against the only other ranked teams in the conference it should be almost guaranteed 11 wins. We are going with that number for the Ducks in what ends as a PUSH on this total.
SEC- Alabama Crimson Tide
Odds to Win Conference: -120
Win Total Odds: OVER 11 (-120) UNDER 11 (+100)
There is Alabama and then there is the rest of Division IA. The Tide are going for their third-straight national title this season and while they will probably play in the final BCS Championship Game before a four-team playoff goes into effect in 2014, navigating their way through a brutal SEC schedule is always a challenge. The good news is that Georgia and Florida are not on the schedule and they play LSU at home. Go ahead and pencil in a perfect 12-0 run through the regular season that takes this win total OVER.
