Over the idle week, the Ohio State Buckeyes moved up three spots to No. 8 in the AP Poll. While the ranking got better, the odds for the national title stayed the same. Entering Monday afternoon, Bovada listed the Bucks at 12-to-1 odds of winning the College Football Playoff— the same as last Monday. Those odds are tied with Michigan for fourth best in the country.

If there was some good news from the odds, the three teams in front of the Scarlet and Gray also didn’t see their chances change. Alabama still leads the way at 1-to-2, with Clemson behind them at 5-to-1. In a not-too-distant third is Notre Dame, who sits at 13-to-2.

Even though Georgia beat Florida, their odds took a slight dip, moving from 14-to-1 to 16-to-1. The biggest mover upwards was Oklahoma, who not only defeated Kansas State, but is now the highest ranked Big 12 program after Texas stumbled on the road against Oklahoma State. The Sooners began last week (Oct. 22) at 30-to-1, and now rest at 22-to-1 on Monday.

Below is the table of the 10 teams with the best odds of winning the national title.

In the race for the Heisman Trophy, quarterback Dwayne Haskins made a slight move upwards in the week off. Still with the third best odds, he’s at 9-to-1; that’s a slight increase from 12-to-1 after the Purdue game. Crimson Tide QB Tua Tagovailoa still reigns supreme on the the odds board, staying at a 4-to-11 favorite for the Heisman. Kyler Murray, the OU QB, is still in second, getting a slight bump up after rocking the Wildcats. Murray’s odds are 10-to-3.
