It is going to be another tough conference as there are some surprising teams that could make a run with excellent value to their name.
Conference USA 2018 Odds: Florida Atlantic (4/5)
It is simple and easy to point out that the reason Florida Atlantic is back in the title fun is thanks to head coach Lane Kiffin. He wasted little time in putting in his style of work that has been known for winning championships as he turned a three win team into a title winning leader.
Kiffin came into this program knowing he had one of the best running backs in the country, and build a foundation around him to succeed even more.
At the moment, the offense is still in the works as they are shuffling some offensive players around, but they have one of the best weapons in the conference.
As for the defense, they are going to be another top squad in 2018, as they have a lot of players returning to FAU. Now they bring in a new coordinator that could make them shine into top bowl games.
Conference USA 2018 Odds: Marshall Thundering Herd (7/2)
In comes the Marshall Thundering Herd as they have the second best odds to win the conference as they welcome in another season with a difficult schedule. The Herd have been able to compete a long side FAU in the past years, however losing important games have cost them the title.
Looking at the important schedule right now, games such as NC State and South Carolina early in the season needs to be winnable matchups.
If the Thundering Herd want to compete with FAU, they must be able to get their offense to the next level. At the moment, there are a lot of questions with the offense. With new coordinator Tim Cramsey it will be interesting to see his style of play.
The new offensive coordinator will be along side a new quarterback as their former QB Chase Litton headed into the NFL.
Expect transfer QB Alex Thompson to get the ball in a very tight conference that can go either way.
Conference USA 2018 Odds: North Texas (5/1)
The North Texas Mean Green are looking to get another West Division crown in the Conference USA, but they must be able to stay along side the top dogs in the division. Last year they were unable to stay with them and were a laughing matter from the conference.
Last season, they got swept by the FAU Owls. More importantly they did not finish the season strong with a loss to Troy.
They need to win these underdogs games as they have been able to put some quality wins for the rest of their schedule.
Conference USA 2018 Odds: Middle Tennessee (6/1)
The most interesting value at the moment comes from the Blue Raiders of Middle Tennessee. They have yet to win a conference championship for the past 11 seasons. However they have been able to have some good seasons as of late.
Those good seasons include reaching three straight bowl games and putting together some great offensive performances.
If the Blue Raiders want to reach the next level, they need a historic season from quarterback Brent Stockstill. Last season he recorded himself in the record books as he became the All-Time leading passer.
