Alabama listed as favorite to win national championship
The College Football Playoff semifinals are set and Alabama was listed as the favorite to take home the championship.
Bovada listed the No. 2 Crimson Tide at 10-11 odds to win the championship. Fourth-ranked Oklahoma earned a spot in the Playoff with seven consecutive victories and was listed behind Alabama at 9-4 odds to win the title.
The top-ranked Clemson Tigers were third on Bovada’s list as their odds fell to 11-2 this week. The Tigers are the lone undefeated team in the Playoff field, but many pundits believe the Sooners will give them a run for their money. Alabama’s semifinal opponent, Michigan State, received 6-1 odds to win the championship. The Spartans staged a late rally in the Big Ten Championship game to knock off Iowa.
The Tide finished the season 12-1 and won the SEC Championship over Florida with a convincing 29-15 drubbing. The wiseguys must be impressed by Alabama’s body of work to be backing the Tide in the Playoff.
