2022's Best Preseason Conference Championship Plays - Steven Lassan, Athlon Sports, 5/10/22
The best early value picks among conference title betting odds for 2022 are:
ACC: Clemson is a very early (2/3) favorite to win the ACC, but if you are looking to wager on the conference winner, NC State at (10/1) or Wake Forest at (20/1) are good bets.
Big 12: Baylor is a (15/2) favorite and should be a lot higher, but if you want a deep, low-risk sleeper, take a chance on Kansas State at (50/1).
Big 10: Ohio State (1/2) is a heavy favorite, and the list of potential challengers is small. Michigan at (11/1) is closest, with Purdue at (25/1) an intriguing long-shot bet. Iowa at (20/1) another pick to consider.
Pac-12: The conference winner will likely to come from this trio: USC (2/1), Utah (5/1) or Oregon (11/5). We consider Utah the best value. Long-shots include UCLA at (17/2) or Oregon State (40/1).
SEC: Alabama at (1/1) and Georgia at (5/4) seem on a collision course for the SEC title, and it's hard to find value outside of those two teams. Texas A&M (11/1) and Tennessee (40/1) are the best long-shots.
