Titanic was in post-production and was still eight months away from hitting theaters the last time a Pac-12 team won the national championship.
With losses by Arizona and UCLA in the Sweet 16 of the 2022 NCAA Tournament, the conference’s title drought was extended to 25 years. But despite significant roster turnover for both the Bruins and Wildcats, they’re both among the top 10 teams in national championship odds at the sportsbook.
2023 National Championship Odds
Five different conferences have at least one team ahead of UCLA – the Pac-12 team with the best odds (+1400) – in national championship betting. However, with Arizona not far behind at +2000, the Pac-12 is tied with three other conferences for most teams (two) with odds of +2000 better.
After the conference’s two most likely title contenders, there are some steep drop-offs and several teams buried beneath mid-major programs like Howard, Winthrop, and Wright State. Oregon (+5000) and USC (+8000) are the only other teams above +15000, and two teams – Cal and Oregon State – have the worst odds (+100000) of any team currently available for betting.
Here’s a look at 2023 national championship odds for each Pac-12 team:
