    2015 College Football conference championship odds. Odds courtesy of Bovada.lv.



    The odds to win the conference championships in college football are available. Its no surprise that teams like Ohio State, Alabama and USC are favorites to win their respective conferences. The bookmakers have their favorites but what do the numbers say?

    Using our 2015 College Football Preview, we look for teams that the oddsmakers are undervaluing to win the conference championships.

    AAC

    Memphis, UCF and Cincinnati tied for the league championship last season but the Bearcats are the favorites to capture the American Athletic title this year. Cincy returns 15 starters including quarterback Gunner Kiel, who threw for 31 touchdowns. The addition of Navy allows the conference to have a league championship game. It is still unlikely that the winner would earn a spot in the second College Football Playoff.

    Team Odds
    Cincinnati +200
    Memphis +220
    Houston +450
    Central Florida +650
    Navy +800
    Temple +900
    East Carolina +1000
    South Florida +6600
    Tulsa +10000
    SMU +20000
    Tulane +20000
    Uconn +20000

    ACC

    Clemson has Heisman hopeful Deshaun Watson at quarterback and the Tigers are the favorites to win the conference championship but other teams including Florida State, Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech and Louisville are all less than +1000 to win the title. One team that could surprise is Miami at +1200. We project the Hurricanes to win the Coastal division, in the championship game anything could happen.

    Team Odds
    Clemson +200
    Florida State +250
    Georgia Tech +500
    Virginia Tech +900
    Louisville +900
    Miami Florida +1200
    North Carolina +1200
    Pittsburgh +1200
    NC State +2000
    Duke +5000
    Boston College +20000
    Virginia +20000
    Syracuse +20000
    Wake Forest +20000

    Big 10

    Everyone expects big things from the reigning champions. The Buckeyes are huge favorites to win the conference and Ohio State is of two teams in college football that aren't plus money to win their league. Urban Meyers teams is projected to wax Wisconsin in the Big Ten finale by two touchdowns. The Buckeyes make it back to the College Football Playoff but can they repeat?

    Team Odds
    Ohio State -300
    Michigan State +700
    Wisconsin +800
    Nebraska +1000
    Michigan +1600
    Penn State +2500
    Iowa +2500
    Minnesota +2800
    Northwestern +5000
    Maryland +10000
    Illinois +10000
    Indiana +10000
    Purdue +30000
    Rutgers +30000

    Big 12

    TCU and Baylor open the season in the top-5 of our Power Rankings. Each is expected to compete the conference title but can the Big 12 overcome not having a conference title game? After last year's snub, we project the Big 12 to get a team in the playoff, though it might not be the best team from the conference.

    Team Odds
    TCU +160
    Baylor +250
    Oklahoma +500
    Oklahoma State +700
    Texas +1000
    Kansas State +1200
    West Virginia +2000
    Texas Tech +2000
    Iowa State +3300
    Kansas +30000

    Conference USA

    The C-USA is top heavy. Marshall, Louisiana Tech and Western Kentucky are all less than 3-to-1 to win the conference. In the most likely title game we project the Thundering Herd to narrowly defeat LaTech 27-25. If you are looking for a dark horse title contender try Middle Tennessee State at +1000. Blue Raiders are projected to finish second in the East division and are the third highest rated team from the league in our Power Rankings.

    Team Odds
    Marshall +125
    Louisiana Tech +260
    Western Kentucky +275
    Rice +800
    Middle Tennessee State +1000
    UTEP +3300
    Florida Atlantic +4000
    Florida International +5000
    Southern Miss +5000
    Old Dominion +10000
    North Texas +10000
    UTSA +30000
    Charlotte +30000

    Mid-American

    For the last five years, Northern Illinois has dominated the MAC. In that span the Huskies are 57-13 and a crazy 41-4 against the league. That run ends this year. NIU, Toledo and Western Michigan are all +300 to win the conference but it's the Rockets that are going to emerge victorious.

    Team Odds
    Northern Illinois +300
    Toledo +300
    Western Michigan +300
    Bowling Green +400
    Akron +1000
    Ball State +1200
    Ohio +1200
    Umass +2000
    Kent State +3300
    Buffalo +5000
    Central Michigan +7500
    Miami Ohio +30000
    Eastern Michigan +30000

    Mountain West

    Earlier we mentioned Ohio State as one of two teams to not be plus-money to win their conference. The other, Boise State. The Broncos are big favorites to win the Mountain West and for good reason. In the most likely title game, Boise State defeats San Diego State (the oddsmakers second pick to win the conference) 32-19, it's not really that close.

    Team Odds
    Boise State -300
    San Diego State +700
    Utah State +900
    Colorado State +1200
    Air Force +1600
    Fresno State +1600
    San Jose State +2000
    Hawaii +3300
    Nevada +3300
    Wyoming +3300
    New Mexico +10000
    UNLV +30000

    Pac-12

    The Trojans are the best team in the conference, the Ducks aren't far behind and USC vs. Oregon for the Pac-12 title would be a fun game to watch. Don't sleep on UCLA. The Golden Bears, after consecutive 10-win seasons, are a team that could win the Pac-12 title and crash the College Football Playoff.

    Team Odds
    USC +200
    Oregon +240
    Stanford +350
    UCLA +350
    Arizona State +900
    Arizona +2000
    Utah +3300
    California +4000
    Colorado +20000
    Washington +20000
    Washington State +20000
    Oregon State +20000

    SEC

    Eight of the conferences 14 teams rank inside our top-25. Bama is the favorite to take the league but Auburn is projected to win the Iron Bowl (at home) and thus advance to the SEC title game. A win in the championship game over Georgia puts Auburn the playoff.

    Team Odds
    Alabama +210
    Auburn +275
    Georgia +500
    Ole Miss +1000
    Arkansas +1000
    LSU +1000
    Tennessee +1200
    Texas A&M +1600
    Missouri +2000
    Florida +3300
    South Carolina +3300
    Mississippi State +4000
    Kentucky +10000
    Vanderbilt +50000
