2019 PAC 12 Season Football Preview
Looking for 2019 PAC 12 Conference predictions? The PAC 12 gets a ton of criticism and deservedly so. Until USC rallys they might not have a truly elite program but they are really good top to bottom and those games that end so late are super fun to watch.

It looks like the North Division is going to be super competitive with potentially the three best teams situated there.
PAC 12 Conference 2019 Odds: Washington Huskies +180
This is a really tough call between Washington and Oregon.
The thing to note here is that Washington will host their annual game and that could be the difference maker.
Washington is looking to retool, especially on defense but they have been great bringing in guys that play well on that side of the ball.
On offense they have Jacob Eason, who transferred back home after losing the job at Georgia.
There is some questions about him because he was not great on the East Coast, but he was a five star recruit back in the day.
The key is going to be the defense. If they can plug and play there only a couple of teams on the schedule can beat them.
They might be lacking experience in the pivot but big offensive line will give him a chance to take a title in his first season.
PAC 12 Conference 2019 Odds: Oregon Ducks +200
Oregon got a major break when quarterback Justin Herbert elected to come back to school.
He is a consensus to be the top QB in the league this season and the Ducks will need him to lead a strong offense.
The offense is missing their top pass catchers from a year ago but most of the rest of it returns so they should not skip a beat.
The Ducks were solid on defense last season but are changing styles due to coaching changes. Jim Leavitt is out and the former Boise State coordinator is in.
Linebacker Troy Dye is a stud to build around but one elite players does not a defense make.
Oregon gets a nice test right off the bat against Auburn. If they win that one they could quickly be the favourite to take the conference crown.
PAC 12 Conference 2019 Odds: Washington State Cougars +700
You can pretty much be sure that Washington State will move the ball.
Ever since Mike Leach came to town they have been one of the best passing offenses in America, no matter who the quarterback is.
There might be a battle at QB but whoever wins will have plenty to work with. With a strong line there is no reason to think the offense won’t be more than good enough to win a lot of games.
The Cougars are underrated on D. They led the conference in sacks last season and a lot of those players return.
They are never going to be the favourite in this league but they can beat everyone on their schedule.
PAC 12 Conference 2019 Odds: USC Trojans +800
USC remains the sleeping giant in the PAC 12.
When you evaluate them in terms of talent there is no reason USC should not be considered the top team in the league. Production is a different matter though.
JT Daniels did not look out of place as a freshman but he did not set the world on fire either. He should be more comfortable and has a lot of weapons.
I like Stephen Carr at running back a lot. He has the burst to score on any play and can give you more than he has in the past. He could be a break out.
The strength of the defense is up front. The talent they have there could make this team really good, possibly the best in the conference. The back seven is not nearly as stout though.
USC is USC. If they wind up being really good it will be a surprise only because we have not seen that in a while.

PAC 12 Conference: 2019 Prediction
USC +800. This is a play on the fact that there is a better chance you get the Trojans in the title game than guessing right on the teams in the North. For that payoff it is a really good value and if they are in that game they are more than good enough to win it.
