Notre Dame still behind Clemson in CFP odds

The Clemson Tigers remain favored to reach the College Football Playoff despite Saturday’s loss to Notre Dame.

The Fighting Irish rose to No. 2 in the AP Top 25 poll following their 47-40 double-overtime victory over the Tigers. However, a potential rematch in next month’s ACC title game would be played at a neutral site and likely with Trevor Lawrence back at quarterback for Clemson.

Alabama was the new national champion favorite at BetMGM (+180) and SportsBetting.com (+200) on Sunday, followed by Ohio State (+225, +200). Clemson was listed at +300 by both sportsbooks despite Saturday’s loss.

Florida was being offered at +1000 by BetMGM after the Gators thumped Georgia on Saturday, with Notre Dame listed at +1600. Meanwhile, the Irish were +1000 with the Gators at +1400 by SportsBetting.com.

No other team had lower than +3300 odds (Texas A&M) at either book.

Lawrence has missed two games after testing positive for COVID-19, which has significantly hampered his Heisman Trophy hopes.

Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields is the +150 betting favorite by SportsBooks.com, followed by Alabama quarterback Mac Jones at +175. Lawrence, who was the -130 favorite two weeks ago, has fallen to +250.

However, FanDuel listed Lawrence at +175 on Sunday, making him the co-favorite along with Fields and Jones.

Florida quarterback Kyle Trask is +500 by SportsBetting.com and +1000 by FanDuel, followed by BYU quarterback Zach Wilson (+3500, +4000).
