2020 College Football Odds Breakdown

More than anyone else in the Big Ten, the Ohio State Buckeyes wanted to play football this fall. They almost won the title last year, and out of all the impressive teams in their conference, OSU had the best odds to win the 2021 National Championship here at Bovada Sportsbook. But after successfully lobbying to end the coronavirus shutdown and bring back the Big Ten, the Buckeyes now find themselves in danger of missing the College Football Playoff – thanks to the very same virus.

It isn’t for lack of trying. Ohio State (4-0 SU, 2-2 ATS) have batted aside all their opponents thus far, but they’ve also had two games canceled because of COVID-19. That puts the Buckeyes perilously close to not qualifying for the Big Ten title game – and their college football odds are getting longer as a result. However, as long as they stay healthy, play the rest of their schedule and win out, Ohio State should still make it. Talk about a sweat.

College Football Playoff Odds

With OSU’s title chase under siege, the 2020 NCAA football odds look a bit different this week. Here are the top six favorites at press time.

1. Alabama Crimson Tide (+125)

Even with head coach Nick Saban falling ill to the coronavirus, the Crimson Tide (8-0 SU, 6-2 ATS) continue to beat up on the 2020 college football odds. They’re –500 favorites to win the SEC title and lock up a playoff spot.

 2. Clemson Tigers (+250)

Are you ready for another Alabama-Clemson showdown? The Tigers (8-1 SU, 3-6 ATS) have Trevor Lawrence back under center after his own bout with COVID-19, and they’re pegged at –333 to take down the ACC title for the sixth year in a row.

3. Ohio State Buckeyes (+550)

Dropping from +225 on Bovada’s college football odds board, the Buckeyes are a virtual lock to win the Big Ten – if they manage to play their last two games against Michigan State and Michigan.

4. Notre Dame Fighting Irish (+600)

Things are looking up for the Irish (9-0 SU, 5-4 ATS). Their NCAA football odds have improved from +2000 since the first CFP rankings put them at No. 2 behind Alabama, easing concerns that the selection committee wouldn’t invite two ACC teams.

5. Florida Gators (+1200)

With the top four almost set, the Gators (7-1 SU, 4-3-1 ATS) will need to win the SEC East, then beat Alabama for the conference title if they’re going to get into the Playoff. It could happen.

6. Texas A&M Aggies (+1600)

After Northwestern suffered their first loss in Week 12, there’s renewed hope for the Aggies (6-1 SU, 3-4 ATS). They beat Florida in Week 6 and could sneak in as a one-loss team ahead of Clemson or Notre Dame – they’ll presumably meet in the ACC Championship Game on Saturday, December 19 (4 PM ET, ABC).
