Alabama remains the clear favorite, while we’ve seen a lot of movement away from Michigan, Clemson, Texas and Louisville. You can find better odds now on almost every school compared to where they opened. There are no odds for Ole Miss since they’ve self-imposed a bowl ban on themselves for the 2017 season.

  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!
