South Carolina recently moved to the 8th most favorable team to win the BCS, paying 18:1. Just a few weeks ago we were ~12th at 28:1 odds.
There are two team prop bets for how many games we will win this year. Picking either over/under 9.5 games pays the same either side less 15% juice. I was even more surprised to see the other prop, over/under 10 wins that is trending less favorable of our gamecocks. Picking under 10 wins is only paying 65% of your wager, while picking over pays 135%.
There is a prop bet to pick the SEC versus the field to win the BCS. The odds started even less 20% juice. Now picking the SEC only pays 60% of your wager, while non-SEC pays even money.
Teams ahead of us as more favored to win the BCS: Alabama, Oregon, Ohio State, Texas A&M, Georgia, Stanford and LSU (Clemson at 11th paying 25:1)
The only Clemson prop is over/under 9.5 wins. Under pays 90% of your wager, while over pays 80%.
LSU? I'm shocked that Vegas is on that train. I think they are only an 8-9 win team this season.
4 of the top 7 and 5 of the top 8 picks to win the NC are from the SEC. LSU lost so much on D (and had a relatively weak O) that I am surprised to see them highly ranked.
Agreed on both your points about LSU. Their schedule is ridiculous, too. OOC is weak, but they do play Florida and UGA from East.
Any guesses what the new odds would be if we beat UNC and UGA? I think we'd probably be 4th assuming Bama, Oregon and Ohio St had not lost.
