As Pac-12 Media Days draw infinitely closer, Bovada has released their odds-on favorites and duds for the 2014 season and Washington State is in the middle of the road in the conference according to the betting lines.
The Cougars are pegged to finish in a tie for seventh with the Arizona Wildcats at 25-1 odds. The chance of winning the North goes up for WSU, but it’s still stacked at 12-1 against while Washington, Stanford and Oregon all take home better odds.
Though the Stanford Cardinal have won the previous two Pac-12 Championships, Oregon takes the best odds at 6/5 this season. As we know, the Pac is anything but predictable and Oregon may be vulnerable this season more than any other in recent memory, having to replace so many starters this season. Without more adieu, here are the official betting lines for Bovada.
Washington State 12/1
Oregon State 14/1
Arizona State 6/1
Washington State 25/1
Oregon State 33/1
The Pac-12 media days will roll around in two weeks and due to a new set-up Mike Leach will now take QB Connor Halliday and LB Darryl Monroe for two days. In the past it had only been a one day event, but there is so much to pack in that it just made sense to expand.
The media interview portion on Wednesday will be held at 12:10 p.m. – 12:50 p.m. and will be followed by one on Pac-12 Networks from 12:50-1:30. Thursday will hold interviews for all three of them with the conference’s television partners, Pac-12 Networks, ESPN and FOX.
