Week 14 is in the books and it’s time to take an updated look at the odds to win the 2019 National Championship.

It’s Championship Week in college football and that means this is the final chance for teams to make their case for being included in the 4 team playoff. As of right now the college football playoff ranking are as follows. No. 1 Ohio State, No. 2 LSU, No. 3 Clemson, No. 4 Georgia, No. 5 Utah, No. 6 Oklahoma, No. 7 Baylor, No.8 Wisconsin, No. 9 Florida and No. 10 Penn State.

There are just 8 teams with odds to win it all and one of those is not in the Top 10 we just mentioned. That would be No. 13 Oregon, who is a huge longshot at +20000.

The odds on favorite is Ohio State at +140 with LSU and Clemson right on their heels at +250. You then have Georgia  at +1000, Oklahoma/Utah at +2000 and Baylor way back at +12500.

Preseason Vegas Lines for Past NCAA Football Championship Teams

The table below lists the preseason line on every team that went on to win the title since 2002.  The 2010 Auburn Tigers were the most unlikely champs in recent history.  A $100 bet on Auburn made before the start of the 2010 season would have paid $5,000 at the end of the year.  Compare that to the heavily-favored 2004 USC Trojans.  A $100 preseason bet on them would have paid just $300!

FBS Championship Game Betting History: Spread, Total & Results

Next, find the results, spreads, and totals for every championship game since 1998.  This is when NCAA football started having an actual title game.

The biggest upset in the history of these games came in 2002 when Ohio State beat Miami.  The Buckeyes were 12-point underdogs.  They won thanks in large part to a controversial pass interference call in double overtime.
