The second season of college football’s playoff system will be come not too long from now and will be a very popular event to look forward to later this year. The early odds for who could win the 2015-16 college football title have already came out.
Ohio State Could Repeat
The Ohio State Buckeyes pulled off a big upset as the fourth seed in the playoff but still won it all. The Buckeyes have 7/2 odds from the gambling site SBGGlobal.eu to repeat as champions this year. This is thanks in part to Ezekiel Elliott looking to be a big threat at the running back position and a possible Heisman hopeful. Of course, there is still plenty of debate as to which of the three quarterback candidates for the Buckeyes should actually be the starter this year.
Alabama Wants To Get Back
The Alabama Crimson Tide, who were the top-seeded playoff team only to be upset by Ohio State last year, have 7/1 odds to win. The team has a strong foundation and Nick Saban is a favorite coach among many bettors. However, the big question will be if Jake Coker, who is transferring to Alabama from Florida State, will be the quarterback who will lead the Tide back into the playoffs this year.
TCU Wants To Get Back
After missing the playoffs, the TCU Horned Frogs will be riding off quarterback Trevone Boykin to try and win it all this season. The Frogs have 10/1 odds to win it all.
Florida State Is Slumping
Although they were the only undefeated team in the regular season, the Florida State Seminoles still got blown out in the playoffs. The Seminoles are listed at 33/1 to win this year. This is especially due to all but one starter on the offensive line being lost this year. The turnover for the Seminoles will be a big storyline to watch for this year.
As For Oregon…
The Oregon Ducks are hoping to make a comeback after losing in the championship game last year. The Ducks have 22/1 odds and will have Thomas Tyner and Royce Freeman at the running back position to help the team move forward even after Marcus Mariota has moved on to join the NFL ranks.
