2020 College Football Odds Breakdown

 

With just a handful of games remaining before bowl season, the Ohio State Buckeyes look like the best team in college football. They’ve even got the shortest odds to win the 2020 National Championship heading into Week 13. But Ohio State has a lot of work to do before they can earn a spot in the College Football Playoff. Will they even make it out of the Big Ten alive?

 

College Football Playoff Odds: The Favorites

While the Buckeyes and the other top teams on the college football odds board try to navigate their way to the CFP, the defending champions have a relatively easy ride to the Playoff. Here are the top five favorites at Bovada Sportsbook as we go to press.

1. Ohio State Buckeyes: +180 College Football Bowl Odds

Don’t be fooled by their No. 2 spot on the CFP rankings – Ohio State (10-0 SU, 8-2 ATS) are No. 1 on the 2019 NCAA football odds list for a reason. They’ve completely dominated the toughest conference in the FBS, playing quality football nearly everywhere on the field. However, the Buckeyes still have to get through the Penn State Nittany Lions this Saturday as 19-point home favorites just to reach the Big Ten title game on December 7, where they would also have to beat a solid team like the 9-1 Minnesota Golden Gophers before they can advance to the Playoff.

 

2. Louisiana State Tigers: +250 College Football Bowl Odds

The Tigers (10-0 SU, 6-4 ATS) may be No. 1 on the CFP charts, but the 2019 college football odds tell a different story. Their otherwise impressive Week 11 victory over the Alabama Crimson Tide showed LSU’s cracks on defense, which nearly allowed the Tide to come all the way back from 20 points down at the half before finally escaping with a 46-41 victory. Giving up 37 points to the Mississippi State Bulldogs in Week 12 wasn’t terribly convincing, either. At least their path to the SEC Championship Game on December 7 is relatively clear, with the Arkansas Razorbacks and Texas A&M Aggies remaining on the schedule.

3. Clemson Tigers: +275 College Football Bowl Odds

This is where the NCAA football odds don’t quite measure up to how easy these Tigers (11-0 SU, 8-3 ATS) have it between now and December 8, when the final CFP rankings will be announced. It’s true that Clemson hasn’t faced the same kind of opposition in the ACC that the Buckeyes have in the Big Ten, or those other Tigers in the SEC – but as long as they make it through the December 7 ACC Championship Game unscathed, the selection committee will put Clemson in the top four. Which seed they get could determine whether the defending champs hold onto their title; a CFP semifinal with Louisiana State would surely be more welcome than having to play Ohio State.

 

4. Georgia Bulldogs: +800 College Football Bowl Odds

That’s if LSU make it that far. Georgia (9-1 SU, 6-4 ATS) hold down the No. 4 spot in the CFP rankings for Week 13, and they’re on target to face the Tigers in the SEC title game, which just happens to be at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. The Bulldogs are one of the best defensive teams in college football, and they should give the Tigers a run for their money – but first, they have to put away Texas A&M and the Georgia Tech Bulldogs to lock down first place in the East Division.

 

5. Alabama Crimson Tide: +1200 College Football Bowl Odds

How quickly have Alabama’s fortunes turned. The Crimson Tide were neck-and-neck with Clemson for most of the year, and well on their way to yet another National Championship battle – until they lost to LSU. Worse, QB Tua Tagovailoa dislocated his hip during their Week 12 victory over Mississippi State, and won’t play again this year. It’s up to Mac Jones to pilot Alabama through their last two games, wrapping up with the November 30 Iron Bowl against the Auburn Tigers at Jordan-Hare Stadium. Then they have to anti-sweat LSU and hope they get a shot at the SEC title; otherwise, they might fall even further out of a playoff spot, with either the No. 6 Oregon Ducks (+1600) or No. 7 Utah Utes (+6000) poised to win the Pac-12 as a one-loss team.
