After they got their first ranked win of the season, the Ohio State Buckeyes nudged their National Championship odds upwards. Bovada released a new set of odds on Monday, and the Buckeyes moved up from 8-to-1 odds to 13-to-2 odds.

Those odds are the third best in college football and only trail Alabama Crimson Tide and Clemson Tigers. After annihilating Ole Miss 62-7, the Tide now has 19-to-10 odds—the best in the country. The Tigers held serve, coming in at 5-to-1 for the second straight week.

Below are the list of the 10 teams with the best odds to win the national title.

On the Heisman odds board, OSU quarterback Dwayne Haskins is still a top-3 contender. However, his odds dipped just a smidge for the second week in a row. The 344-yard passing clinic against the Horned Frogs didn’t elevate his chances apparently, as Haskins now sits at a 7-to-1 shot. Last week after picking apart Rutgers, he was at 13-to-2 odds.

As Alabama surges, the Heisman Trophy odds increased for their starting quarterback, Tua Tagovailoa. His odds are now 3-to-2, an increase from 10-to-3 last week. Behind him is West Virginia QB Will Grier. Like Haskins, Grier saw a dip in his odds as well, as he fell to 13-to-2 odds.
