Georgia’s dominating performance against TCU, which resulted in a score of 65-7, marked the conclusion of the recent college football championship. This is the first time that the Bulldogs have repeatedly won the sports title. Alabama completed the same feat during the 2011 and 2012 football seasons. Now that the 2022 season has been completed, it is time to begin preparations for the next season. LSU is currently ranked among numerous early top 25 teams.
LSU’s fans expect they will compete for the SEC title and maintain their relevance on a national level. The odds for the upcoming college football season are often published by sportsbooks, including Betrivers Louisiana, almost immediately after the national championship game for the previous season ends.
There are many other ways to bet on the future outcomes of NCAA football games. However, selecting the team that will emerge victorious in the national championship is the most common. Since there is a great deal of ambiguity regarding what will occur the following season, you will be able to obtain a good price on virtually any team during the offseason and the preseason.
Odds to win the next championship
If there are any indicators, Georgia has the potential to achieve a feat that could go down in the annals of history. That is to win the title three times in a row, which hasn’t been done since 1934/1936 when Minnesota achieved this. This hasn’t ever been done during the championship season. The Bulldogs have a +325 chance of winning the championship once more. There are teams who are more likely to succeed though, such as +550 odds for Alabama. Ohio State is currently sitting at odds of +650. They came close to upsetting Georgia in the semifinals of the playoff in college football this season.
USC is the fourth team listed at +1000. They will be bringing back Caleb Williams, their quarterback, who won the Heisman Trophy this season. They were quite close to making the playoffs this year but fell just short.
The next two college teams in the rankings are tied at +1400: LSU and Michigan. Jim Harbaugh, the head coach of the Michigan Wolverines, headed the team in the College Football Playoff for the previous season. He is currently considering opportunities in the NFL.
LSU had a surprising performance under Brian Kelly which led to their first-ever Citrus Bowl and SEC East division championships. LSU finished the season with a record of 10-4. The Tigers will bring back several of their most important contributors. This includes Jayden Daniels playing quarterback and Harold Perkins the breakout defensive alongside other significant contributors. Florida State will play LSU on September 3rd in Orlando.
The odds of +1400 suggest that LSU stands a chance of 6.67% to win the national championship next year. The College Football Playoff will initially consist of four teams. However, beginning with the 2024 season, it will expand to include 12 teams. The national championship game is scheduled at NRG Stadium in Houston. The semifinals will be held in Pasadena, California for the Rose Bowl, and in New Orleans for the Sugar Bowl.
All the previous national champions, of which there are 12, have about +1800 odds at this point in the competition. There is a 20/1 chance that Notre Dame will win, followed by +2200 chances for Tennessee and Penn State and +2500 chances for Oregon. TCU, which finished second this year, is tied for fourth place followed by Utah and Oklahoma in the betting odds at +4000.
There is still significant time left in the offseason, which means there’s a chance for player transfers yet to happen for the upcoming football season. The odds will keep changing in the offseason right up until the beginning of preseason camp. It was predicted from the start of the preseason that just three teams were elite enough to win the title this year. However, it is expected that next year’s championship market will be more open. LSU has compelling arguments in its favor. Bettors interested in getting in on the action early in the betting market for the college football national championship might want to consider looking a little further down the table, beyond the traditional and binary SEC powers.
