It’s the final week of the college football regular season and this feels like the most wide-open title race in a long time. There are still five undefeated Power 5 teams as well as a few other one-loss contenders waiting for those squads to stumble.
Let’s take a look at which teams have drawn the most handle 💵 to win the national title.
1. Michigan (+250) 11.9%
The bad news: Georgia (+250 to +240) overtook Michigan (+200 to +250) as the title 🏆 favorite yesterday, making it the first Monday the Wolverines haven’t been atop the odds board since Oct. 9.
The good news: Michigan is 3.5-point home chalk over Ohio State, the first time in five years that the Wolverines have been favored in this rivalry.
2. Alabama (+600) 10.2%
Alabama’s longest title odds during the season came when it was +5000 on Sept. 17-18, after only scoring 17 points against South Florida. The Crimson Tide face Auburn in Saturday’s Iron Bowl at Jordan-Hare Stadium, where they’ve lost three of their last five.
3. Texas (+1200) 9.0%
Texas fans are probably annoyed to see the Longhorns with worse title odds than Alabama after winning by 10 in Tuscaloosa and with both teams sitting at 10-1. Imagine if the CFP committee had to pick between the two for the final spot if each went 12-1 and won its conference championship 🤔.
