Betting on the 2022 college football season’s nothing new — title odds were released back in January, literally as Georgia celebrated under the confetti over Alabama.

But new markets are opening up, especially after this weekend’s NFL Draft. BetRivers, in particular, dropped conference title odds for the entire Power Five Tuesday.

Clemson and Ohio State were unseated last year in the ACC and Big Ten, respectively, but they’re the odds-on favorites to get back on track.

Elsewhere, we could be in for quite a treat, including wide-open races in both the Big 12 and Pac-12.

ACC Title Odds

Team Odds
Clemson -143
Miami +700
NC State +900
Pittsburgh +1000
Louisville +1400
Florida State +1600
North Carolina +1600
Virginia +1800
Wake Forest +2500
Virginia Tech +3300
Boston College +4000
Georgia Tech +5000
Syracuse +8000
Duke +20000

Clemson was rotting on the couch while Pitt, which hadn’t won more than eight games in the Pat Narduzzi era, defeated Wake Forest in last season’s ACC title game.

Prior to that, Dabo Swinney and the Tigers rattled off six straight, most with relative ease: Clemson won four of the most recent ACC Championship games by 24 or more points.

However, the 2021 Tigers offense was unbearable, ranking 103rd nationally in yards per play and averaging 24.4 points per game — nearly 20 fewer than the 2020 unit.

Big 12 Title Odds

Team Odds
Oklahoma +150
Texas +225
Oklahoma State +700
West Virginia +800
Baylor +1200
Iowa State +1400
TCU +1400
Kansas State +2000
Texas Tech +2800
Kansas +15000

Oklahoma is always a mainstay, and Texas continues to fool everyone into believing it can contend. Mike Gundy’s Oklahoma State club certainly deserved a bump after last season’s gem.

But how about Neal Brown and West Virginia? They are the fourth Big 12 team priced at 8-1 or shorter.

The Mountaineers have yet to break out under the former Troy head coach, but they’re on the upswing after landing former Georgia gunslinger J.T. Daniels out of the portal.

Big Ten Title Odds

Team Odds
Ohio State -200
Penn State +700
Michigan +900
Nebraska +1400
Wisconsin +1400
Iowa +1600
Minnesota +1600
Michigan State +2500
Purdue +2500
Indiana +2800
Maryland +8000
Northwestern +10000
Illinois +10000
Rutgers +15000

C.J. Stroud and Jaxon Smith-Njigba enter the season as the most lethal QB/WR duo in the entire country for Ohio State, which failed to appear in the Big Ten title game for the first time in four years last winter.

Penn State (+700) and Michigan (+900) have the best chance at knocking the Buckeyes off track, but expect Nebraska to be a potentially popular bet in this market.

The Cornhuskers went just 3-9 last season, but should have been a 7.6-win team based on post game win probability.

Pac-12 Title Odds

Team Odds
Oregon +250
USC +350
Utah +350
Washington +1000
UCLA +1000
Washington State +1200
Stanford +1600
Arizona State +1600
Cal +2000
Oregon State +2800
Colorado +4000
Arizona +4000

The theme in college football’s wonkiest conference is new quarterbacks.

Although Cameron Rising returns for reigning Pac-12 title winner Utah, Oregon’s Bo Nix (formerly of Auburn) and USC’s Caleb Williams (formerly of Oklahoma) immediately have high expectations to meet after coming out of the transfer portal for clubs priced at +250 and +350, respectively.

Not to be outdone, Washington landed Michael Penix Jr. from Indiana, while Arizona State looks to get situated after watching Jayden Daniels depart to LSU.

SEC Title Odds

Team Odds
Alabama +150
Georgia +250
Texas A&M +1200
Tennessee +3300
Florida +4000
Ole Miss +4000
Arkansas +4000
Kentucky +5000
Auburn +6600
LSU +6600
Mississippi State +6600
South Carolina +6600
Missouri +25000
Vanderbilt +75000

It’s a clear-cut, two-team race in SEC between Alabama and Georgia.

The pair of blue bloods played a couple must-watch games last season and should be right in the thick of things come next year: Not only are they priced in a tier of their own in the conference title odds market, they own the two shortest national championship odds on all of football.
