Odds to win the 2008 NCAA Pacific 10 Conference has Southern California as the easy -300 favorite, which means that every other team would offer a fantastic payout including the next shortest odds - Arizona State had +500 odds with a payout potential of $500 for every $100 bet.

Here is what the Bleacher Report had to say about the USC Trojans:

Look for USC to meet Georgia for the BCS Title . We were anointed the pre-season #1 at the Pac-10 media day today and we are a favorite to win the Nat'l Championship. Not only do we face formidable conference rivals Oregon and ASU but we've got a September 20th date with the Buckeyes of Ohio State at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum too.

Do it better than it's ever been done before and never stop competing. Win Forever. Always Compete.

These are but a few of our team mottoes.

Consider these facts. Under Pete Carroll, USC has:

Six Consecutive Pac-10 titles

A record Six straight BCS bowls

A record five BCS bowl wins

Three Heisman Trophy Winners

Two National Championships

A Nationwide high 10 players drafted into the NFL in the 2008 Draft

An NCAA record of 63 straight games scoring 20 or more points

A national record of 33 straight weeks as the AP #1

Six consecutive AP finishes in the top 4.

A 76-14 (84.4%) record

The question is not: Will USC be good? The question is: Can USC be beat? And if so, how?

The Arizona State Sundevils were chosen to finish second in this conference, hence, the second shortest odds of +500.

ASU plays a doozy of a non conference game when it faces Georgia on September 20th. If the Sun Devils do not solve their offensive line woes before then, they will not get out of that game alive. Ditto for their conference games against USC and Oregon.

If Carpenter gets the protection he needs either from his O-Line or the new offense, look out Tempe, your Sun Devils could crack the AP/USA Today top 10 with potentially their only losses coming at the hands of Georgia and USC. A Holiday Bowl berth, or should USC play for the BCS title, a Rose Bowl berth is yours for the taking.

Watch those Oregon Ducks too with +700 odds and a $700 payout potential for every $100 bet if USC should somehow falter and Oregon stands a chance to win this conference.

They have the most powerful defense in the Pac 10.
