College Football Playoffs Rankings | Betting Odds To Win The 2020 National Championship
College Football Playoffs Rankings And Betting Odds [Updated 2019]
The second wave of the College Football Playoffs rankings brought a shocker. Alabama is out of the top spots despite there being two SEC teams inside the main four seeds.
Is Bama completely out of it? Of course not, but Nick Saban can’t be happy with the recent development of the rankings.
Let’s take a look at the updated college football team rankings and odds to win the National Championship.
1. LSU +225
The Tigers are not the betting favorites to win the National Championship despite leaving Tuscaloosa with a massive win last weekend.
What else do the Tigers need to do to be considered favorites? They have the Heisman Trophy favorite, Joe Burrows, playing at the highest level possible.
Burrows went from +100 to -1000 after throwing 393 and three touchdowns on the road against Alabama.
LSU Improved Odds To Win National Championship
LSU is unbeaten and has played four ranked teams this season. Two of those games were on the road. Their +225 odds to win it all have a 31% implied probability of being a winner.
2. Ohio State +200
Ohio State is now listed second in the College Football Playoffs rankings. They remain the favorite to win the title at +200.
Ohio State Is Still The Favorite For A Reason
The Buckeyes are set to score 100 points against Rutgers this weekend. It’s a huge mismatch. But their real challenges are in the next two weeks against Penn State and Michigan. In both games, Ohio State will open as favorites.
Ohio State remains with the best point differential in the nation, averaging 51.0 points per game while allowing just 8.6 PPG.
3. Clemson +350
Let’s face it, Clemson has benefited from a very weak schedule this season. They are about to face Wake Forest this weekend, and the Demon Deacons are not even a ranked team anymore.
The Tigers will get to the College Football Playoffs with more questions than answers. Sure, they have a great quarterback and champion coach in Dabo Swinney, but the 2019 version of Clemson is unproven.
I don’t think anybody can argue that by looking at their ten wins this season.
4. Georgia +800
The Bulldogs are inside the top four because the committee loves playing politics. There is no scenario where Georgia should be ahead of Alabama, but here we are.
Georgia’s only loss was against South Carolina at home. That’s not a normal L. In fact, it is one of those that takes away your chances to be in the playoffs.
For the Bulldogs to get into the playoffs with these latest rankings, they need to sweep the regular season and beat LSU in the SEC Championship game. A second loss anywhere knocks them out.
5. Alabama +550
We are not used to seeing Alabama in this position so late in the season. This is the first time Bama is out of the top four since Nov. 28, 2017. That year the Tide won the National Championship.
Alabama doesn’t need much to get that fourth spot. They need LSU to beat Georgia in the SEC Championship Game, and then the Bulldogs’ loss to South Carolina will come in play.
Alabama Playoff Spot Riding On LSU Victory
If Georgia beats LSU, then the Tide is in serious trouble. It would be hard for the committee to give them a spot over LSU or Georgia. But also, Clemson and Ohio State are not expected to lose in the last few regular-season games.
I don’t think Alabama was expecting this scenario, but they now need to root for LSU to clean the table the rest of the way.
