The Las Vegas Hilton Superbook posted the over/under win totals for 35 college football teams from the SEC to the WAC. Which team has the highest win total? Two SEC teams are posted with an over/under win total of 10 wins and two other conferences have 11 win teams.
When the Las Vegas Hilton Superbook posts the over/under win totals on NFL and college football teams they have already researched the teams for three to four months. They take into account recruiting classes, NCAA sanctions and injury prone players before they release the numbers more than a month before the opening kickoff. The following are the 35 teams over/under win totals and links to in depth analysis.
SEC Over/Under Win Totals Feature 2 Teams Over 10 Wins
The SEC is a top heavy conference this season. While they have fielded a BCS Championship Bowl team the last four seasons, the lack of depth in the conference may harm the top teams this season. If Florida drops two or three games and Alabama struggles with two losses or more there will not be an SEC team.
Alabama and Florida are both pegged for ten wins on the over/under win totals, while Georgia, Arkansas and Auburn are all set at 8.5 wins. South Carolina and LSU both are expected to lose five or more games according to the Las Vegas Hilton Superbooks over/under win totals.
PAC 10 Over/Under Win Totals Has USC on Top
The PAC 10 was in a down year during the 2009 college football season. This season, the numbers posted on the over/under win totals on PAC 10 show a drop in the over/under wins totals from previous years. USC is still the highest ranked PAC 10 team with an over wins total of 9.5 wins. Despite losing their Heisman candidate at quarterback, Oregon is still next in line with an over/under wins total of 9 games.
Stanford is the next highest over/under wins total with 7.5 wins but they could have a better season in a conference that is in a down cycle at the moment. Washington and UCLA will both go over their PAC 10 over/under win totals if they just play one game over.500 as their numbers are set at 6 and 5.5 wins respectively
Big 10 Over/Under Win Totals Under Rate Iowa
Ohio State leads the Big 10 Conference teams with a number of 10 wins as the over/under wins total. Ohio State’s toughest out of conference game will be Miami (Florida). Their toughest Big 10 Conference games will be a road trip to Wisconsin for a night game and their game against Iowa.
Iowa returns Ricky Stanzi at quarterback and they will be gunning for their share of the Big 10 title. The Las Vegas Hilton Superbook has posted Iowa’s over/under wins total at 8.5. They should be able to clear that number with a possibility of closing out with 10 regular season wins. The rest of the Big 10 over/under win totals look to be too close to call.
Big 12 Over/Under Win Totals May be Inflated
The Big 12 over/under win totals may be over inflated in some cases. Oklahoma’s win total has been posted at 10.5 wins, while the Texas Longhorns are posted at 9.5 wins. Nebraska looks to have a great year this year but remember they are in their lame duck season. Nebraska heads to the Big 10 next season and the Big 12 teams will be out to extract their pound of flesh from the deserters.
ACC Over/Under Win Totals May Hide Some Opportunities
Virginia Tech’s season boils down to the first game of their season. When they play Boise State in Landover, Maryland the winner will most likely lock up a BCS bowl bid if they can win out. Both teams have a relatively easy schedule after the first game. Virginia Tech’s over/under win total is posted at 9.5 wins and they should cover that number with ease. Also Florida State is a good bet over at 7.5 wins their first season under Jimbo Fisher.
Big East Over/Under Win Totals Low Compared to Other Conferences
The Big East could face a definite drop off in the 2010 college football season. The Big East over/under win totals posted by the Las Vegas Hilton Superbook reflect this. West Virginia possesses the highest over/under wins total at 8.5 wins. Pittsburgh and Cincinnati are both set with 8 wins but of the two, Pittsburgh stand the best chance of going over the number.
Mountain West Over/Under Win Totals High Compared to Others
The Mountain West Conference has some tough schools at the top but the bottom of the conference is a work in progress to nice to the doormats. New Mexico, UNLV and Colorado State will be fortunate to rack up ten wins between them. The Mountain West over/under win totals for TCU is set at 11 games but they will actually play 13 regular season games. BYU’s number is set at 8 wins and they could surprise some out of conference teams with their hard nosed play.
WAC Over/Under Wins Totals Showcase a Sleeper
The WAC currently has three teams that can beat other conference leaders. Headed by Boise State and featuring two teams, Nevada and Fresno State, the WAC will gather some surprise wins in the 2010 college football season. The WAC over/under win totals post Boise State at 11 wins and Nevada at 9.5 wins. Give Nevada a good look before the season starts and if Colin Kaepernick is healthy, bet the over.
