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.
