When I worked for ESPN full time, I put out a weekly article entitled the Vegas Power Ratings. I still have all the sources that I used to produce that article as it featured my plus/minus ratings which closely resemble Vegas’s numbers as well as three different casinos including the fine folks over at the Westgate Las Vegas Sportsbook @SuperBookSports.
This is not the AP poll but gives you an idea of how much teams would be favored over another team if they met on a neutral field. I use these to get an idea of lines on upcoming games. Keep in mind just because a team beat someone last week does not mean they would be favored over them in the Vegas ratings. I will update these each week during the year as always.
As an example, Arkansas lost to BYU at home in a game Arkansas had a 424-281-yard edge. BYU is 5-2 and Arkansas is 2-6. If you were an AP voter you would have BYU vastly ahead of Arkansas. If the two matched up again Arkansas would be favored at home by close to to TD. A shocker to you is that the Vegas Power ratings still say if Texas was to play Oklahoma again this week, Texas would be favored.
Here is the tenth edition of the 2023 Vegas Power Ratings!
