We are inching closer and closer to football season, with the pre-season watch lists being announced, and now Vegas is updating their odds for which teams will win their respective conferences. The Bovada released their odds just a few days ago, and Utah falls where many would expect them, around the middle of the league (with a couple of ties mixed in).
The Utes are tied with Colorado with 33/1 odds to win the conference championship, which feels about right to me. The Utes lost a lot of talent, and have a lot of question marks. A retooled offensive line as well as a rebuilt secondary has a lot of people wondering how Utah will make it through the next season. Fortunately, for Utah, there’s a lot of young talent on the team, just unproven. One team that I scratch my head over is UCLA. They are 9/1, which means Vegas thinks the Bruins will bounce back behind Josh Rosen. I know they have some talent on their roster, but they’ve been pretty disjointed the past couple of seasons, and after missing a bowl in 2016, I think they should be knocked down a notch.
Take a look at the full odds below, and let us know what you think.
