USC has the third best playoff odds, Washington the eighth

Pretty solid.

NCAA Football: Southern California at Washington Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

The Pac-12 has two squads that have decent odds to make the college football playoff.

The USC Trojans hold 7 to 5 odds. USC is expected to make the playoff according to these odds, posting the third best prospects behind Alabama and Florida State (two teams who play against each other the first week of the season). The early money is on USC finishing their goal.

The Washington Huskies hold 4 to 1 odds to make the playoff. Washington isn’t a terrible bet if you expect the Huskies to be just as good as USC—the Huskies have almost the same schedule and are expected to be prohibitive Pac-12 North favorites. Only pesky Stanford seems to stand in the way.

Here’s a look at the current college football playoff odds from Bovada.
