USC’s Odds To Win 2014-15 Championship Come In At 33/1


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.

    USC is going to surprise this year.

      I hope you’re right. Scholarship numbers worry me a bit.

    USC will be very good this year, I’m hoping 11-2, 10-3 at worst ! USC is probably not Championship quality yet but come 2015 SC will easily be a Top 10 team !

    No offense to Kessler but I don’t see championship quality there, I didn’t see it in Barkley or Sanchez either.

    That said, all 3 of those quarterbacks were/are good to very good college quarterbacks !

    Max Browne is Elite !!!

    Last years Recruiting Class was Fantastic, the highest rated since records have been kept !

    This year is going good, add Adorre, Ju Ju, Mama and Quick and the sky is the limit !!

    And that’s when it will all change !

    We-are-almost-there !
