Just in case you wandered onto a travel website and wondered if it might be worth buying that ticket from Los Angeles to Arlington, Texas in January of 2015 for the College Football Championship Game, Phil Steele has you covered.
Will USC be making an appearance in the deciding game of the very first college football playoff? According to Vegas, the odds are slim.
Sportsbook.com gives Steve Sarkisian’s Trojans a 50/1 chance of winning the championship next season, as does LVH. Bovada has much more faith in USC, starting out with 33/1 odds.
Interestingly enough, Notre Dame shares 33/1 odds from Bovada with the Trojans.
Other Pac-12 teams are also featured in the oddsmaker’s books. Oregon is most likely to represent the conference next season with odds as high as 5/1. UCLA’s highest odds are 20/1. Stanford comes in at 9/1, while Arizona State’s highest is 30/1.
Sarkisian’s former team, Washington kicks off with 66/1 odds.
No surprise that the current National Champion Florida State Seminoles are the overall favorites with 3/1 odds from Sportsbook, 11/2 odds from Bovada and 5/2 odds from LVH.
