UCLA Football: Bovada Gives the Bruins the Best Odds to Win the South, Place Second in Pac-12


The UCLA Football team is getting a lot of respect from Bovada as the on-line sports betting site gives the Bruins the best odds to win the South Division, and just miss out on winning the Pac-12.

Good news for Bruin fans, UCLA Football is expected to do very well this season. They already have a few players named to a few award watch lists as well as to preseason All-America teams  and even betting sites are getting in on the action.

Last week, Bovada had released their Heisman odds which Bruin QB Josh Rosen placed 7th in with 16/1 odds.

Well Bovada is back at it and this time have given the Bruins 7/2 odds to win the Pac-12 Championship, which is second in Conference (Stanford tops the list with 3/1 odds) and first among all South Division teams.

Overall, it seems the Bruins are in a tight race for the Pac-12 as they are neck and neck with Stanford and Washington who were given 4/1 odds.

After that, there is a bit of a gap with Oregon and USC at 11/2.  Utah, which has not exactly been able to top the Bruins and Trojans in the standings, comes in at third in the South and 6th overall.

In the bottom half, it is Washington State (14/1), Arizona and Arizona State (20/1) and Califrornia (22/1). Then there is a drop off with Colorado and Oregon State (50/1) bringing up the rear.

Looking at the UCLA Football schedule, the Bruins miss out on Washington and Oregon which are perceived to be 2 of the top five teams in the Pac-12. That is very favorable to the Bruins, especially when they take on Stanford, Utah and USC at home.
