Odds to Win the 2018-19 College Football National Championship

Let’s get serious for a second here. Is anybody going to come close to knocking off the Alabama Crimson Tide this season? Three weeks into the season and the story is not “if” but “by how many” are they going to win. With a dual threat of Tua Tagovailoa and Jalen Hurts on offense and a defense that’s allowed 9.33 points per game, it’s their championship to lose at this point. +185 is likely as good as you’re going to get the Crimson Tide, so lock your bets in now. 

Clemson Still Second On the Odds Table

The Tigers lost their No. 2 ranking to Georgia in Week 4, but they’re still second on the odds table at +500 to win the national championship. Clemson barely escaped with a win at College Station in Week 2 but rebounded with a statement win against Georgia Southern. Playing a weaker conference and actually getting into the College Football Playoff to have a chance to win mitigates the near loss to Texas A&M.

Badgers Drop Way Back & Other Misadventures

A loss to BYU in Week 3 has caused Wisconsin’s odds to plummet coming into Week 4. The Badgers were at +1200 going into that game and are +2800 coming out of it. 

File this one under “tough to explain” but the Central Florida Knights saw their odds go from +5000 to +10000 after their game vs NC State was postponed. NC State also moved back from +15000 to +17500.

The Arizona State Sun Devils’ odds and ranking came back to earth after dropping a Week 3 game to San Diego State. A quick one-week trip to the AP Top 25 ended swiftly with the loss, as did their (minuscule) spot in the conversation to win the national championship, from +15000 to +37500.

Odds as of September 18 at Bovada

The Alabama Crimson Tide remain the favorite to win the 2019 College Football Playoff National Championship as they open Week 3 at +210 to repeat as the nation’s top football squad. The top four teams all remain relatively the same with Clemson at +500 and Ohio State and Georgia both at +800, but there has been some movement on the oddsboard in both directions after two weeks of play.

Notre Dame Moves Into Contention

The Fighting Irish were at +4000 odds to win the national championship entering Week 2 and have rocketed up to join some of the big boys at +1400. Despite QB Brandon Wimbush throwing just one TD pass to four interceptions in the first two weeks, a Week 1 win over Michigan followed up by a win vs Ball State has the independent school sitting at 2-0 as the Irish welcome Vanderbilt this weekend. 

A win over Vanderbilt would set them up nicely at 3-0 before heading to Wake Forest in Week 4, with eyes on being 4-0 when Stanford comes to town at the end of the month. The defense has come up big when it has mattered for Notre Dame, led by junior safety Jalen Elliott, who already has two interceptions and 12 tackles on the young season. 

Underdog Darlings

The Boston College Eagles and Arizona State Sun Devils were the biggest movers of the week. The Eagles jumped from +50000 to +20000 after dispatching their second straight opponent. Another team with Wake Forest on the schedule, BC will be led by impressive running back AJ Dillon into Winston-Salem this weekend looking to improve to 3-0.

Herm Edwards has the Sun Devils rolling. Edwards’ star power and extensive pro football experience has helped the Sun Devils to a 2-0 start and a spot in the AP Top 25 for the first time this season. ASU jumped from +50000 odds to +15000. The Sun Devils’ home victory toppled Michigan State 10 spots to No. 25 in the rankings and sent the Spartans’ odds spiraling as well, from +3500 to +9000.

Alabama remains the favorite to win the 2019 College Football Playoff National Championship with the Clemson Tigers in second place on the odds table. 

Alabama is still the +225 fave to win the title game as of September 4, with Clemson (+600), Ohio State (+700), Georgia (+750), Michigan (+1000), Penn State (+1200), Wisconsin (+1600), Auburn (+2200), Oklahoma (+2200), LSU (+2500), and Miami (Florida) (+2500) rounding out the top 10.

Any Reasonable Long Shots Out There? 

Last year’s darlings from Central Florida sit at +8000 after Week 1, up from +25000 last week. Who doesn’t love an underdog? The Knights are playing with a chip on their shoulder and will be looking for some more respect this season. 

Some other schools that make the argument for a punt are TCU (+6600), UCLA (+6600), and Herm Edwards' Arizona State Sun Devils (+50000)

Alabama football is no stranger to being favored to win the College Football Playoff National Championship, and oddsmakers are united in predicting the Crimson Tide to once again emerge triumphant on college football’s biggest stage in 2018-19.

The Alabama Crimson Tide are the +175 favorites to go all the way in 2018-19.

At Bovada, Alabama was listed as the undisputed +175 faves to win the title game as of June 15, with Clemson (+600), Ohio State (+700), Georgia (+750), Michigan (+1600), Wisconsin (+1600), Washington (+2200), Oklahoma (+2500), Penn State (+2500) and Auburn (+2500) rounding out the top 10.

There have been plenty of odds moves since the book released its updated championship odds after Alabama edged Georgia 26-23 in overtime in the 2017-18 College Football Playoff National Championship. Since then, ’Bama has moved from +275 to +175, while Ohio State (+750 to +700) and Wisconsin (+2200 to +1800) have also seen their odds improve. Plenty of squads have seen their chances worsen, however, as Michigan (+900 to +1600), Penn State (+1100 to +2500), Oklahoma (+1800 to +2500), Auburn (+2000 to +2500), Texas (+2000 to +4500) and Miami (FL) (+2200 to +2800) tumbled down the oddsboard.

Saban’s recruiting dominance paves the way for more ’Bama domination

Since the NCAA switched to its current playoff format in 2014, Alabama has made it to the final on three occasions, winning twice in that span. Master recruiter Nick Saban once again showcased his prowess in luring talented players to Tuscaloosa, as Saban has 13 of the ESPN top 300 players in the nation committed to play for this team in 2018-19. Since 2008, 48.3 percent of five-star recruits who played for Alabama have been drafted in the first round of the NFL draft. It’s easy to see why the Tide continue to be a top choice for young players looking to impress NFL scouts.

Much like college basketball, there’s plenty of parity in college football, so don’t be surprised if a team that’s relatively low on the list makes a run for the College Football Playoff. Here’s a look at Bovada’s full odds for the 2018-19 NCAAF campaign. Which school do you think is offering the most value?
