Daily Five: Best Longshots To Win College Football Playoff National Championship

By

1. Wisconsin Badgers

Current Odds To Win The National Title: 30/1

There are a few different theories and beliefs in play here.

First, Wisconsin should get back to the Big Ten Championship. Nebraska comes to Madison, there’s no Ohio State or Michigan State from the East, and the non-conference slate – WKU, New Mexico and BYU – is a relative breeze.

Second, the team might just be better than the 2017 version. Everyone is back on the O line, all the key skill parts are back other than TE Troy Fumagalli, and the defense should be back to form after the starting 11 comes together.

Third, the style works. The talent and speed might not be there compared to the Clemsons, Georgia, Alabamas and Ohio States, but with this offensive front, and the way the Badger bashing ground attack controls games, this is the one team with the upside to overcome anyone.

And fourth – Wisconsin is WAY overdue to have that breakthrough moment.

With road games at Iowa, Michigan, Penn State and Purdue, no one will be complaining about the schedule strength, but 11-1 is more than possible for what’s become one of the nation’s most consistent programs.

And it’s coming in at 30/1.
