The 2018 season will be the first for the UCLA football team and Chip Kelly, so like all coaching transitions, success will be obtainable, but it will take some time.
That seems to be the case according to the Westgate Las Vegas Superbook who have the Bruins at 40/1 odds to win the Pac-12 this coming season, the 7th best odds among all conference teams.
Odds to win Pac-12 via @LVSuperBook:
Arizona, Utah 15/1
Arizona State, Colorado 50/1
Cal, Washington State 80/1
Oregon State 500/1

The favorite is Washington (5/9) who will be starting their fifth season with Chris Petersen.
