2019-2020 College Football FBS Championship Odds
After 15 weeks the field for the inaugural College Football Playoff is finally set, and it looks to be a great one in the making as fans will be treated to two fantastic semifinal matchups on New Year’s Day before the FBS Championship Game to follow on January 12th, 2015. In addition to the final rankings, the revised odds to win the National Championship are out for the final four, and payouts follow right along with the rankings.
The final College Football Playoff top-4 rankings are as follows:
1. Alabama Crimson Tide (EVEN)
2. Oregon Ducks (17/10)
3. Florida State Seminoles (13/2)
4. Ohio State Buckeyes (8/1)
Looking at the top 3 teams there is little surprise, as Alabama, Oregon and Florida State were the top 3 favorites to win the championship prior to the start of the season albeit in a different order…
Starting at the top, the Alabama Crimson Tide are favored to bring home 16th national title and fourth in the last six years. They began the season with 5 to 1 odds to win the College Football FBS Championship, but those have dropped all the way down to even money (1/1) following their dismantling of Missouri in the SEC Championship Game. While winning the SEC is no small feat the road to the national championship is going to no doubt be tougher with Ohio State (8/1, +800) waiting in the wings for their Sugar Bowl matchup on January 1st, 2015 @ 8:30pm ET (ESPN). The early spread for this much anticipated matchup favors Alabama by 10 points however counting the Buckeyes out would be a mistake, as they have overcome many obstacles just to get to this point, and Urban Meyer can definitely coach with the best of ‘em including Nick Saban.
The other semifinal contest will feature the Oregon Ducks (17/10, +170) and the reigning champion Florida State Seminoles (13/2, +650) in what should be a very entertaining affair. Likely to feature the last two Heisman Trophy winners, Marcus Mariota (2014*) and Jameis Winston (2013), you can bet much of the attention will be on the Rose Bowl when 5:00pm ET rolls around on January 1st, 2015 (ESPN). And like the other semifinal, oddsmakers see one team as the clear favorite, and it’s not the team riding a 29 game win streak… Though varied between sportsbooks, the Seminoles are in the area of being a 9.5 point underdog against Oregon’s high-powered offense. Will Oregon be the team the finally puts Florida State away, or will they be the thirtieth notch in the ‘Noles belt? That’s a question not likely to be answered until the clock reads all-zeros considering the caliber of the two teams in this half of the bracket.
