With just over three months to go until the start of the college football season, BetOnline odds makers have predicted the number of regular season wins for each team in the Pac-12 to give an early look at how the conference might play out.
Oregon is expected to be the third-winning team in the conference, with oddsmakers setting the Ducks’ over/under win total at 8.5.
- Oregon – 8.5 wins: over -135, under +105
- Washington —7.5 wins: over -115, under -115
- Cal — 5.5 wins: over +100, under -130
- Oregon State – 5.5 wins: over -150, under +120
- Washington State – 5.5 wins: over +125, under -155
- Stanford – 4.5 wins: under -145, over +115
- USC – 9.5 wins: over -150, under +120
- UCLA – 8.5 wins: over -120, under -110
- Utah – 8.5 wins: over 140, under +110
- Arizona State – 5.5 wins: over -150, under +120
- Colorado – 3.5 wins: over +115, under -145
- Arizona – 2.5 wins: over -165, under +135
With an all-new coaching staff led by first-year head coach Dan Lanning and offensive coordinator Kenny Dillingham, who spent his last two years at Florida State, there’s little certainty about what Oregon will look like on either side of the ball.

The Ducks season begins against the defending champions Georgia Bulldogs, a game in which they are big underdogs, with Georgia being favored at 16.5.
In the conference, Oregon will play two of its toughest games at home, with UCLA (October 22) and Utah (November 19) both making the trip north to Autzen.
With the arrival of new coach Lincoln Riley at USC, the Trojans are expected to have the most wins in the Pac-12, opening at -150 to win more than 9.5 games.
While the Ducks and Trojans don’t meet in the regular season, USC is their likely opponent should Oregon make it to their fourth straight Pac-12 championship game.

The Trojans will start their season with a presumably easy non-conference game against Rice. Their biggest test will come on either November 26th when they host Notre Dame or October 15th when they travel to Salt Lake to face off against Utah, the defending Pac-12 champion.

Utah opens at slightly better odds than Oregon and is expected to win more than 8.5 games at odds of -140.
The team’s 2021 Pac-12 Coach of the Year Kyle Whittingham returns as the first-team All-Conference Quarterback Cameron Rising and tight ending Brant Kuithe along with physical congestion Tavion Thomaswho hit Oregon for 94 yards and three touchdowns when the teams first met on November 20. Thomas also had two touchdowns against Oregon in the Pac-12 championship game.
UCLA is the third team expected to win 8.5 games with overset odds of -120.
In four years at UCLA, Chip Kelly’s teams have only gotten better, as last year the Bruins finished 8-4 at the Ducks in Los Angeles.
The Bruins will return the second-team All-Pac-12 dual threat quarterback Dorian Thompson Robinson and run back Zack Charbonnetwhich Kelly is setting up for another explosive offense in 2022.

The Bruins travel to Eugene on October 22nd. It’s worth noting that Chip Kelly has never beaten Oregon at Autzen, where his head coaching career began.
After a disastrous year-long stint under Jimmy Lake that resulted in a 4-8 record, Washington, now led by Kalen DeBoer, is favored to win 7.5 games with the over set at -115, which they makes fifth Pac-12 team expected to play a bowl game.
Washington joins Eugene on November 12. Oregon has beaten Washington in each of the last two seasons.
With the release of these odds, Oregon appears to remain at the forefront of the Pac-12 as the rest of the conference continues to impress.
