Updated CFB championship odds: FSU slides
Despite a 31-27 come-from-behind victory over the fifth-ranked Notre Dame Fighting Irish on Saturday night in Tallahassee, the Florida State Seminoles dropped from 5/1 to win this season’s college football championship to 7/1 Monday morning at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook.
Alabama and Mississippi are now the co-favorites at a price of 5/1, with Mark Richt’s Georgia Bulldogs hanging close by at 6/1.
Winston and the Seminoles dropped from 5/1 to 7/1 even after defeating a top-5 Irish team.
Brian Kelly’s Irish, who were inside the red zone with less than a minute to play and a chance for the upset Saturday night, slid from 12/1 to 30/1 after the program’s six-game winning streak to open the season came to an end.
But Notre Dame wasn’t alone in their plummet down the odds board. Baylor dropped from 12/1 to 25/1 following the team’s upset loss at West Virginia and Oklahoma plummeted from 7/1 to 100/1 after Bob Stoops’ crew was handed its second defeat of the season, this time courtesy of Bill Snyder and the Kansas State Wildcats (from 50/1 to 25/1 after the win).
On the flip side of things, Arizona State surged from 300/1 to 75/1 after defeating Stanford 26-10, TCU’s impressive dismantling of Oklahoma State vaulted the Horned Frogs from 50/1 to 15/1 and Utah continued its impressive climb following a tough Thursday night road win at Oregon State that advanced the Utes from 500/1 to 100/1.
Here’s the full rundown:
