New College Football Playoff Odds After Tuesday’s Rankings

  • The Michigan Wolverines are favored to win the National Championship with +185 odds.
  • Despite being ranked fourth in Tuesday’s College Football Playoff rankings, Florida State has (+3000) odds to win the National Championship.
  • No. 7 Ranked Texas and No. 8 Alabama share +800 odds, both shorter than No. 3 Washington at +1500.

HOUSTONBetting odds for the College Football Playoff shifted after Week 13 results and Tuesday’s College Football Playoff Rankings. Michigan is the favorite to win the National Championship with +185 odds as the No. 2 ranked team.

College Football Playoff odds at online sportsbooks don’t fall in line with Tuesday’s rankings. Despite Texas (+800) and Alabama (+800) being out of the picture at No. 7 and No. 8 respectively, odds give them a better chance to win the National Championship than Washington (+1500) and Florida State (+3000) who are third and fourth in the rankings.

NCAA Football Champion Betting Odds

  • Michigan (No. 2) +185
  • Georgia (No. 1) +200
  • Oregon (No. 5) +450
  • Alabama (No. 8) +800
  • Texas (No. 7) +800
  • Washington (No. 3) +1500
  • Florida State (No. 4) +3000
  • Ohio State (No. 6) +5000

The upcoming conference championships and season-ending injuries are the main reasons for the large gap in odds. The Washington Huskies are 9.5-point underdogs at Washington online sportsbooks to the fifth-ranked Oregon Ducks in the Pac-12 Championship, with a loss likely eliminating them from the College Football Playoff.

A three-point road loss to the Huskies is the only blemish on Oregon’s record this season. If the Ducks avenge that loss on Saturday, their College Football Playoff odds at Oregon online sportsbooks will likely shorten again with a spot in the playoff.

College Football Playoff Scenarios For Other Teams

Florida State’s long +3000 odds at CFB online sportsbooks are because of Jordan Travis’s absence, not their chances of making the College Football Playoff. If they finish the season as an undefeated ACC Champion, they are likely in the Playoff, regardless of how backup quarterback Tate Rodemaker would do against Michigan or Georgia.

It gets complicated with Alabama and Texas, especially if Alabama knocks off No. 1 ranked Georgia in the SEC Championship. The Crimson Tide are 6.0-point underdogs at Alabama online sportsbooks in their toughest test of the season.

The Georgia Bulldogs have -225 odds to defend their SEC Championship title in Atlanta, Georgia. With a win, the Bulldogs National Championship odds at sportsbooks in Georgia will shorten and could even be favored heading into Selection Sunday.

Texas doesn’t control their own destiny as much as other teams, but there are scenarios where they get into the College Football Playoff as a 12-1 conference champion. Still, the +800 odds at sportsbooks that accept Texas residents seem too short for a team that might not even make the College Football Playoff.
