Every season the coaches and the associated press put out preseason polls for the upcoming college football season, but the sportsbooks in Vegas also put out a poll by default, the odds to win the national championship.
What better place to look to find who will be the best teams in college football than the odds to win the national championship.
One must assume that while the AP and coaches poll is filled with bias, the odds from Vegas are a true guide to the upcoming college football season. After all, sportsbooks stand to lose millions of dollars if their predictions are wrong. So let’s take a look at who the real best teams in the country are.
USC heads the list and is the overwhelming favorite in the sportsbook poll at +180. West Virginia comes in at the number two spot at +600, a huge drop from the Trojans.
LSU is the third choice at +700. Texas and Michigan round out the top five with both teams being at +800.
Sixth is where we find the defending national champions with a price of +1000. Wisconsin is seventh at +1300, and Louisville eighth at +1500.
The top ten is actually rounded out by a three way tie between Oklahoma, UCLA, and Florida State, all at +2000.
If you are looking for sleepers and value for your money, check out eleven through fifteen, Auburn, California, Georgia, and Penn State are all +3000, and Tennessee and Notre Dame are at +3500.
Anyone looking to correctly predict what will happen in College Football needs to overlook the useless polls that are the AP and Coaches, and go with the people with the money on the line, the sportsbooks.
