The Best Value National Championship Futures Odds Picks Are …
Get in now for one reason – the odds are going to drop through the floor if QB Tate Martell is ruled eligible for this year. Manny Diaz might just be a head coaching upgrade over Mark Richt – at least in terms of energy and ideas – and the new transfers coming in should do wonders for the offense.
The schedule? At Florida State. That’s it. The Canes will likely be favored in every other game. Can they beat Clemson in the ACC title game? Can they win two CFP games? At 50/1, it’s a solid shot at the stars.
Texas A&M 50/1
Oh yeah, you like the Aggies at 50/1.
If you’re looking for one of the teams that’s about to make a big jump up in Year Two under a head coach, it’s this one. Jimbo Fisher is upgrading the talent, and he’s getting the pieces in place.
Okay, so there’s a reason the odds are so massive. The Aggies have to go to Clemson, Georgia and LSU, and host Alabama and Auburn. However, if they can somehow get to the SEC Championship and win it, they can get in with two losses … if they lose two games.
The talent is there to be just that good again, if not better. Is there enough in place to win the SEC West? Yup. Is there enough in place to win the SEC? Yup. Win the conference, get into the CFP, and at 33/1, it’s a solid value pick early in the process.
The schedule isn’t easy, but LSU isn’t going to be afraid of playing Texas on the road. It can beat Mississippi State on the road, and it gets a week off before dealing with Alabama. Texas A&M, Auburn and Florida all have to come to Death Valley.
What if Jalen Hurts is the right quarterback for Oklahoma to win a national title?
No one’s expecting him to be another Baker Mayfield or Kyler Murray when it comes to passing stats, but he’s been there before on college football’s biggest stage, and those two never got a chance.
If the defense is just a wee bit better, and the offense is still terrific – even if it’s in a different way – then maybe this is the year to take that next step.
And the schedule? Going to UCLA will be tricky, and going to Oklahoma State is always dangerous, but come on. Those can’t be barriers if the Sooners are national title good. They’ll be favored in every game except for the Texas showdown – maybe.
At 16/1 to win it all? Yeah, sure. But as soon as it drops, then it’s probably not worth the chance.
