5 Fearless NCAA Football Betting Predictions for PAC 12 in 2018
Prediction #1: Washington will go undefeatedThe Huskies open the season versus top SEC squad Auburn. A victory should propel Washington into the Top 5. They’ll stay there throughout the season because Washington’s got the best offensive line in the nation.Not only that, quarterback Jake Browning heads into this season with something to prove. Washington should go no worse than 8-4 ATS this season.
Prediction #2: USC won’t win the PAC12 South DivisionUSC is the second choice after Washington to win the PAC12. The Trojans won’t even win the PAC12 South Division. The Trojans lost too much from last year’s team, especially running back Ronald Jones II and quarterback Sam Darnold, to beat the likes of Arizona and UCLA. Don’t expect the Trojans to cover spreads, either. Bettors should favor USC in most of their games.Trojans went 3-10-1 ATS last season. They could be that bad ATS this season.
Prediction #3 Arizona will lose to Washington in the PAC12 ChampionshipFormer Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez recruited well. New coach Kevin Sumlin inherits a team with a dynamic quarterback in Khalil Tate and the second-best offensive line in the Pac. The Wildcats should roll.Arizona also returns 9 starters on defense. The Cats should go no worse than 8-4 ATS. They could go 10-2 ATS because their toughest games are at home.
Prediction #4: UCLA will cover ATS versus Oklahoma, USC, and OregonKelly doesn’t inherit an experienced team as Sumlin does. But, this is Chip Kelly. He’s a master college football strategist who will have his team ready to compete versus favored squads. Circle the following games: at Oklahoma on Sep. 8, at Oregon on Nov. 3, and versus USC on Nov. 17. UCLA should be dogs in all 3 games.They might not be if they battle USC and Oregon with an undefeated record. No matter if they’re dogs or not, the Bruins should cover the spread in all 3 games.
