College Football Previews 2018: PAC 12 Predictions
Written by Rohit Ghosh
The Winner: : AccuScore sim data projects Washington to sit atop the Pac 12 this season, averaging 10-to-11 wins in simulations. They have a tough opener vs Auburn and some potentially problematic road matchups with Utah, UCLA, Oregon and Washington State, but they should still play well enough to win the conference easily.
The OVER: : No one is expecting Herm Edwards to turn things around right away for the Sun Devils, but AccuScore sims do suggest Arizona State finish with more than five wins this season. They average 5.5 wins in AccuScore sims.

The UNDER:: The best bet for the UNDER in the Pac-12 is Stanford (8.5 wins). AccuScore sim data projects the Cardinal win fewer than eight games this year. They have a tough conference, hit the road for a matchup with Notre Dame, not to mention an opener with the under-rated San Diego State.
Stay Away:: Most media outlets are expecting UCLA to hit the OVER on 5/5.5 wins, considering Chip Kelly's track record. He's not returning to the spotlight to lose seven-plus games, right? It will probably come down to the games vs Utah and Oregon, but AccuScore sim data suggests a lean on the UNDER for the Bruins. The road matchup vs Oklahoma doesn't help either, at least in the simulations.
