With less than a month until college football kicks off, it's time to look at some of the college football betting lines for Pac-12 win totals.

You read College Football 2012: Betting On SEC Win Totals. Now hear myself discuss the picks along with Vegas oddsmaker Todd Fuhrman and gaming columnists Adam Kramer and Drew Collins on the On The Line Podcast (click to listen or right click and save to download).
My selections stayed the same, but the other guests have great input as well. It's quite fun to debate our selections, and listen to the input from Fuhrman, who cannot give his selection, but does offer a lot of insight into what he considered when setting the line.
On The Line airs weekly throughout the year. The next few weeks will feature more discussion of preseason odds and wagers. In late August, the conversation will shift to the Pac-12, with the B1G, Big XII and ACC to follow. We will probably not get to the Big East.
My feature on Pac-12 wagering will run Monday on SB Nation, and we'll record the Pac-12 edition of the podcast Tuesday night. Be sure to check back next week for more great college football betting coverage.
