After a Pac-12 conference schedule that was filled with upsets, twists, and turns up until this final weekend, we're left with just two teams who will battle it out for the conference title: USC and Utah.
Let's take a look at the college football odds to win the Pac-12 title game below.
Odds to win the Pac-12 championship
Favorites to win the Pac-12 championship
USC Trojans (-140)
Despite a lackluster defense, this high-powered offense led by Heisman Trophy favorite Caleb Williams continues to find ways to stack wins and is now 11-1 overall after beating No. 15 Notre Dame last weekend.
That one loss, however, came against the team the Trojans will have to face in the Pac-12 title game: the Utah Utes, who handed them an epic 43-42 defeat on a two-point conversion back in October.
Revenge, a conference title, and a likely spot in the College Football Playoff are all on the table for Lincoln Riley's crew this weekend.
Utah Utes (+130)
Cameron Rising and the Utah Utes entered this season as slight betting favorites to win the Pac-12 after winning the conference a season ago.
However, they started the season with a loss at Florida and lost two more times through conference play and appeared to be falling out of the race.
Either way, they're here now after some unlikely scenarios played out in Week 13 and get a chance to defend their title against a team they've already defeated this season.

Understanding college football futures odds
Sportsbooks release college football futures odds pretty much as soon the clock hits zero in the previous season's national championship game. There are many ways to wager on NCAA football futures but we'll use picking the outright winner of the national championship — definitely the most popular — as our example.
During the offseason and preseason, you'll be able to get a plus-money price on basically any team in the nation as there is so much uncertainty around what will happen next year.
NCAA football championship odds will usually look like this:
- Alabama Crimson Tide +125
This means that on a $100 bet, you'll stand to win $125 if the Crimson Tide win the national title. If it's close to the end of the regular season and there is a particularly dominant program, you might see that a team is has a minus sign (-) ahead of its odds.
- Georgia Bulldogs -145
This means that if you bet on Georgia you would need to bet $145 to profit $100 if the Bulldogs won the championship.
Of course, futures odds are a fluid market. They can change every day based on news, injuries, suspensions, transfers, etc. In college football there generally isn't too much movement in the futures market during the offseason, but once the season begins, look for huge changes week-to-week based on wins and losses.
All the odds seen above are in American format. Should you find decimal format or fractional format easier to read, simply convert the odds with our easy-to-use odds converter tool.
