2017-18 College Football National Championship Odds

Before Clemson and Alabama faced off in the 2017 College Football Playoff National Championship, the Westgate Las Vegas Superbook posted odds on the 2018 title winner. Alabama (+300) opened as the preseason favorite for the second consecutive season, while oddsmakers are anticipating a major regression from Clemson. With quarterback Deshaun Watson expected to declare for the NFL Draft, the Tigers opened with the ninth-best odds at +2000.

The table below displays the latest odds from the Westgate Las Vegas Superbook. It will be updated as more information becomes available.

I believe USC quarterback Sam Darnold will be a Heisman front-runner when those odds are released next week, and the Trojans will probably enter the 2017 season as the nation’s second most talented team. They benefit from playing in a weak PAC-12 conference, however, there will be challenging non-conference games against Western Michigan, Texas and Notre Dame. I’d likely recommend waiting until offshore sportsbooks post their futures before taking the Trojans.

  1. I see the USC ball washibg as already begun. “2nd most talented team in the natio “? Whst a joke! They capitalized on Penn State errora in a HOME game with a super himan effort by their QB to OVERCOME their sieve-like defense to luckily win the Rose Bowl and everyone is ready to jump into their pants, like always. All you have to do to beat them is run on them. Power teams will chew them up. USC will lose abother 3 games next year…they are Sam Darnold and NOTHING else! It will be fun to watch the egg on the face of all the USC slobberers once again. I will love it ss I have for a decade now!
