Pac-12 North Division Odds
(TheSpread) – The Pac-12 North Division features four teams that seem to be contenders, but only one can be the favorite.
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Oregon is the favorite to win the Pac-12 North this year, as the Ducks have odds of +110. The other short odds to win are Stanford (+375), Oregon State (+425) and Washington (+425).
Oregon won the North Division in 2011, its first year of existence. The Ducks came up just short last year, going 12-1 on the season. Oregon returns 15 starters this year, but have a new head coach in Mark Helfrich. Still, the Ducks have speedy talent like Marcuis Mariota at quarterback and De’Anthony Thomas at running back.
Stanford is the defending North Division champion. The Cardinal went 12-2 last season, but had the key win over Oregon during the season. Stanford has 15 starters back this season, led by linebacker Trent Murphy.
Oregon State hasn’t claimed a division title in the Pac-12. The Beavers went 9-4 in the 2012 season, but have 17 starters back this year. The team will be led by quarterback Cody Vaz.
Washington has also never won the division title, but the Huskies went 7-6 last season and return 20 starters for 2013, with 10 coming back on offense. Quarterback Keith Price and running back Bishop Sankey will look to lead the team.
