Vegas has released the most preliminary of preliminary odds for the 2012 BCS Championship. Behold:
|Oklahoma State||30/1||Oregon State||125/1|
|West Virginia||30/1||Texas Tech||125/1|
|Texas A&M||35/1||Arizona State||125/1|
|Michigan State||40/1||Georgia Tech||125/1|
Perhaps the item of greatest interest to anyone actually reading this is that Vegas apparently thinks Nebraska is your Big Ten favorite—not The Ohio State University.
Or, at least they believe they have the best odds of winning the MNC. Those seem like the same thing to me but maybe there is a subtle distinction I am missing.
Penn State is also given the same billing as Ohio State at 20/1, which is really a slap in the face to the Nittany Lions considering Ohio State is without five starters for a decent portion of the season due to suspensions.
“We think you are good. About as good as Ohio State minus several key offensive starters. What?”
In case you are wondering, the field is 10/1.
