NCAA Football: CFP National Championship-Media Day Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

After a week that saw a couple of upsets in the college football landscape, a new batch of Vegas odds were released. Bovada, one of the more popular online sportsbook, released their odds. Unlike weeks past, the fluidity of the odds stayed the same through Monday afternoon to Tuesday evening.

Ohio State holds the third best odds at the moment, sitting at 7-to-1 odds of winning the title inside Mercedes Benz Stadium. In front of the Buckeyes are the Alabama Crimson Tide and Clemson Tigers, who have the best and second best odds, respectively. The Tide sit at 19-to-10 odds; the Tigers at 9/2.

(To simplify the odds better, if you only bet a dollar on the Tide, the winning yield would be $1.90, and for the Tigers, a one dollar bet would bring home $4.50 if they won it all.)

Teams that saw a drop since the games on Saturday: the USC Trojans and Oklahoma State Cowboys. California had USC on the ropes for three quarters, before quarterback Sam Darnold helped pull his team away in the fourth. The Cowboys were wrangled by the TCU Horned Frogs at home.

Below is a table of the top 10 teams that have the best odds of winning the whole enchilada:

Bovada CFP Odds

Team Current Odds (9/26) Last Week's Odds (9/18)
Team Current Odds (9/26) Last Week's Odds (9/18)
Alabama 19/10 2/1
Clemson 9/2 11/2
Ohio State 7/1 17/2
USC 15/2 7/1
Oklahoma 8/1 8/1
Penn State 10/1 12/1
Michigan 12/1 20/1
Georgia 14/1 22/1
Washington 16/1 28/1
Oklahoma State 20/1 9/1

On the race for the Heisman Trophy, Saquon Barkley is now the favorite. However, since Monday, his odds have taken a small dip. Bovada has Barkley at 5-to-4 odds as of Tuesday afternoon; on Monday, those odds were 7-to-4.

Behind the Penn State running back is a quartet of QBs in Baker Mayfield, Mason Rudolph, Lamar Jackson and Darnold. The only quarterback who didn’t see their odds slip since Saturday was, surprisingly, Okie State’s Rudolph.

Mayfield currently has 3-to-1 odds, as Jackson and Darnold both hold 8-to-1 odds.

J.T. Barrett is behind Jackson and Darnold, but sits back at a distant 33-to-1 odds. Fellow Buckeye and running back J.K. Dobbins is completely off the board after having 25-to-1 odds entering the UNLV contest.
