In perhaps its toughest test of the season, No. 1-ranked Alabama prevailed, and its national championship odds improved in the process.
The unbeaten Crimson Tide have overwhelming 1/1 odds entering Week 11, according to sportsbook.ag, after fending off LSU on Saturday, 10-0. That means a $100 wager only wins the bettor another $100.
No. 4 Texas A&M, meanwhile, saw its championship chances collapse following a shocking 35-28 road loss to Mississippi State. The Aggies fell all the way down to a tie with Penn State and UNC for 18th place on the leaderboard (250/1 odds). Auburn benefited from that downfall in a big way, jumping all the way up to 25/1 odds — just behind Louisville (15/1).
Ohio State (9/2), Michigan (11/2), Clemson (7/1) and Washington (7/1) rounded out the top five.
