The UCLA Bruins might not have the best record in the Pac-12. But Vegas gives them the best chance to win the crown. Odds are courtesy of Bovada.
UCLA currently holds the lowest odds (6 to 1) to win the national title. While they came up a game short of sharing the Pac-12 title with Arizona and Oregon, the Bruins still arguably have the best ceiling of all these squads. UCLA shares the same 6 to 1 odds along with co-favorite North Carolina.
The Oregon Ducks hold 12 to 1 odds, tied with the Kentucky Wildcats. They are tied for the seventh best odds overall. Oregon is probably the most balanced team in the Pac-12 but they aren’t quite on the high ceiling level as UCLA.
The Arizona Wildcats currently hold 18 to 1 odds, ninth best overall. Arizona is a strong squad but has its fair share of flaws that could come back to bite them.
