An examination of the NCAA football Power 5 conferences with tips and insights into the conference championship odds.

A look at the Conference Title Odds

College football kickoff is closing in next week and here’s an update on the Power 5 Conferences and each teams conference title odds from leading offshore sportsbook BookMaker. There are multiple ways to wager on college football future odds and many of them have a strong house hold, like betting who will win the national title. Comparing season win totals is a way to isolate teams and projections based on schedules and strength, and from there you can project more for not only potential national championship and playoff odds, but Conference Title Odds like below.

As you consider the top teams and contenders to make it to the 4-team playoff, know that the top teams offer little value on those futures. The system is setup to assist the Power 5 Conferences and the big brands, who make big money. That’s not changing as the money grows along with partnership deals with networks and now legal sports betting expanding and the sportsbooks partnering with tech companies and other major players in the sports betting business.

You’ll be laying big prices often with many of the top teams in the Power 5 conferences. Look for situations where there are letdowns looming with an eye towards the schedule ahead as well. 

Let’s take a look at the current odds to win the major conferences from the Power 5. Teams in bold are considerations, while also pointing out improvement, surprises and value.
