The 2019 College Football season is on the horizon making it a perfect time to review the College Football National Championship odds.

College Football National Championship Odds & Picks

The National Championship Betting Favorites Are:

  • Alabama +220
  • Clemson +240
  • Georgia +900

Alabama and Clemson are big favorites to take the National Championship. Although Clemson has a much easier road to the College Football Playoff, the Crimson Tide are slight favorites over Clemson. If Alabama makes it, it will probably be at the expense of Georgia. The Bulldogs are good enough to beat Bama and win the SEC. One or all three teams listed above can make the College Football Playoff.

Clemson looks like a lock. Which team is more preferred among Alabama and Georgia? Alabama, because of their easier schedule. Also, Tua Tagovailoa plays for the Crimson Tide.

The National Championship Betting Contenders Are:

  • Michigan +1600
  • Ohio State +1600
  • Oklahoma +1600

Oklahoma offers +1600 odds. The odds on the Sooners should be lower. Lincoln Riley is replacing Kyler Murray at quarterback with Jalen Hurts. Hurts has a chance to be the third straight Oklahoma quarterback to win the Heisman. Alex Grinch will ensure the Sooners defense is better this season than last season.

Michigan should be favored over Ohio State. Michigan went through a few off-season changes. However, the Buckeyes lost their head coach, record-breaking quarterback, and top defensive player, though. Jim Harbaugh’s team should finally break the Ohio State curse. That could lead to a College Football Playoff bid.

The National Championship Sleeper Picks Are:

  • LSU +2500
  • Texas +3000
  • Oregon +4000
  • Florida +4500
  • Utah +5000
  • Washington +6000
  • Notre Dame +6000
  • Nebraska +8000
  • Auburn +8000
  • Texas A&M +9000

A few teams standout on this list. Florida has a ridiculously tough schedule. If the Gators only lose a single game, they will make the CFP due to strength of schedule. Florida must also win the SEC Championship.

Utah, Oregon, or Washington could own the Pac 12. If one of those three wins the Pac 12 Title with an undefeated record, they could get a CFP bid. Watch out for Oregon. The Ducks have a Heisman Trophy candidate in quarterback Justin Herbert.

Notre Dame has a tough schedule. If Notre Dame goes undefeated, they’re in. If they only lose to either Michigan or Georgia, they should get a bid to the College Football Playoff.

The National Championship Long Shot Picks Are:

  • Penn State +10000
  • Wisconsin +11000
  • Mississippi State +12500
  • TCU +12500
  • USC +15000
  • Miami Florida +20000
  • Stanford +22500
  • Syracuse +25000
  • Washington State +25000
  • Michigan State +25000
  • Oklahoma State +25000
  • Army +25000
  • Florida State +25000
  • Central Florida +25000
  • Iowa +25000

Central Florida could go undefeated in the American Athletic Conference. Another undefeated season might require the Selection Committee to give them a CFP bid. Syracuse is the only team that seems capable of beating Clemson in the ACC. They have a puncher’s chance.

Watch out for Washington State if the defense makes another forward stride. If Utah, Washington, and Oregon fail, the Cougars could win the Pac 12. If they win the Pac with an undefeated record, they should make it to the playoffs.
