5 Fearless College Football Betting Predictions for PAC-12 in 2019
The Pac 12 has been a conference that has disappointed in recent years. With traditional powerhouses such as Oregon, Washington, USC, and Stanford, the Pac 12 hasn’t been able to break into the college football playoffs in the last few seasons.
Unfortunately for the Pac 12, it looks like the same situation this season. Even though we may not see a Pac 12 team in the playoffs, the Pac 12 will still have some successful teams. We’ll give you 5 NCAAF Betting predictions for the 2019 Pac 12 season.
5 Fearless College Football Betting Predictions for PAC12 in 2019
— Oregon Football (@oregonfootball) August 13, 2019
Oregon Ducks: Over/Under 8.5 Wins
The Oregon Ducks welcome back Justin Herbert to lead the team in his senior season. Had Herbert left for the NFL draft after last season, he very well could have been the #1 pick. The whole starting offensive line returns to protect Herbert.
Defensively, the Ducks will have some questions to answer. Jim Leavitt, last year’s defensive coordinator, was replaced by Andy Avalos. We’ll see how the defense changes, and if it will be able to stop the Pac 12’s top offenses.
Oregon has a loaded schedule. They open up against Auburn in Arlington, Texas. They also have road games against Stanford, Washington, USC, and Arizona St. This will be a tough schedule for the Ducks.
Stanford is down this season, and USC isn’t the USC that we’re used to. The Ducks will lose 3 games this season and will finish the season with 9 wins. Take the OVER!
Stanford Cardinal: Over/Under 7 Wins
Stanford lost a lot from last year’s team. Although quarterback KJ Costello returns, he lost a good portion of his offensive weapons.
Stanford has a very tough schedule this season with non-conference games against Northwestern and Notre Dame. These games are both at home, and other than a game at Washington State, their tougher Pac 12 games are all in Palo Alto as well.
David Shaw always seems to overachieve. This year will be the same, as the Cardinal go OVER the 7 win total.
USC: Over/Under 7 Wins
Clay Helton is on the hot seat, and he needs a big season to keep his job. He hired Kliff Kingsbury to fix the broken offense. Kingsbury left for the Arizona Cardinals but was replaced by another high-flying offensive guru, Graham Harrell.
USC will be looking for Harrell to get JT Daniels and his youthful group of receivers on the same page. The Trojans defense will be solid and should be able to hold their own against some tough offensive unites.
The Trojans travel to Washington, Notre Dame, and Arizona State, but the brunt of their tougher games are at home. It’ll be close, but the Trojans will win 8 games this year and will hit the OVER!
Colorado Buffaloes: Over/Under 4 Wins
Mel Tucker has been brought in to turn things around in Boulder. Even though the Buffaloes have quarterback Steven Montez, and stud receiver Laviska Shenault, they still don’t have enough.
Tucker will have the defense in better shape, but there still won’t be a lot of wins in Pac 12 play.
They have non-conference games against Colorado State and Air Force that are winnable. We’re just not sure where 3 more wins are going to come from.
UCLA Bruins: Over/Under 6 Wins
Chip Kelly starts year 2 with higher expectations. The Bruins have a very tough schedule, so wins could be hard to find.
With a road game at Cincinnati to start the season, then a date with Oklahoma in Week 3, the early season schedule is rough. Their PAC 12 road games are at Washington St., Arizona, Stanford, Utah, and USC.
Still, in the rebuilding process, and with a tough schedule, it could be another tough year for the Bruins. It doesn’t look like they’ll get to 6 wins. Take the UNDER!
