A while back Vegas released their odds for the 2013 BCS National Championship Game and 2012 Heisman Trophy. Naturally, USC and Matt Barkley are the favorites to win the crystal ball and the statue awarded to quarterback of the favored team in the title game. Only recently did the Las Vegas Hotel & Casino (formerly Las Vegas Hilton) and Cantor Gaming release their projected win totals for 2012. Here's what they've got for B1G teams:

So, what do you think? I know these are only averages but I feel like the Michigan(s) and Wisconsin are too low. I'm thinking they should all be around 9.0 or 9.5. Here are the full lists for LVH and Cantor Gaming. More after the jump.

Finally, in the end, there's no payoff in a college football playoff.
