Updated CFB championship odds: Down the stretch they come
In yet another classic illustration of why it’s better to lose early than late when it comes to the world of college football, the Alabama Crimson Tide (9/4), Oregon Ducks (4/1) and Ohio State Buckeyes (6/1) currently occupy three of the top four slots on the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook’s odds board as we close in on Thanksgiving.
US PRESSWIREAmari Cooper and the Crimson Tide are in full command of the odds board at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook.
Alabama lost on October 4 at Mississippi, Oregon fell on October 2 at home against Arizona and Ohio State was upset by Virginia Tech back on September 6.
Despite a thoroughly unconvincing 34-30 win at 3-7 Kansas on Saturday, TCU held strong at 6/1. However, it’s unlikely that the Horned Frogs maintain their No. 4 ranking when the latest edition of the college football playoff poll surfaces this week. Meanwhile, Mississippi State’s 25-20 loss at Alabama on Saturday will cost the Bulldogs the top spot in the poll, but had no effect on the team’s odds to win this season’s championship, as Dak Prescott and company remain 7/1 at the Westgate SuperBook.
The big riser this week was Georgia Tech, who moved from 9999/1 to 100/1 following the Yellow Jackets’ 28-6 dismantling of No. 19 Clemson coupled with Duke’s 17-16 loss against Virginia Tech. As a result, Georgia Tech now stands atop The ACC Coastal Division, which could lead to a conference championship showdown with undefeated defending champion Florida State in a few weeks.
Here’s the rest of the rundown:
