Is Stanford Falling Back To The Pack? Here Are The Betting Odds On A Pac-12 Title For Each Team In 2014

Oregon continues to be among the most consistent programs in the nation, and they bring back a potential first overall pick at quarterback in Marcus Mariota. There is little to argue with their place at the top of the list of odds for this year's Pac-12 championship. Seeing Stanford tied with schools like Arizona State and USC is a bit jarring, however. The Cardinal are back-to-back Pac-12 champs, and have won their division three years in a row, while USC is breaking in a new coaching staff and Arizona State is coming off of its first double-digit win season since 2007. Does Stanford at 5:1 represent great value, or are the Cardinal due for some regression this season?

Adam Kramer over at Kegs 'N Eggs alerted us to The Greek's first offshore odds for the 2014 season. Here's what it has for the Pac-12:

Oregon - 11:10 (+110)
UCLA - 3:1 (+300)
Stanford - 5:1 (+500)
USC - 5:1 (+500)
Arizona State - 5:1 (+500)
Washington - 15:1 (+1500)
Arizona - 20:1 (+2000)
Washington State - 20:1 (+2000)
Oregon State - 25:1 (+2500)
Utah - 50:1 (+5000)
Cal - 100:1 (+10000)
Colorado - 100:1 (+10000)

How about Wazzu in the middle of the pack there? While I wouldn't personally advise betting on Mike Leach's group, it is cool seeing that program have a puncher's chance at making some noise this season.
