College Football National Title Odds 2022: Alabama Favored Again
College football does not have an offseason, especially when it comes to sports betting.
When it comes to betting on futures in college football, the most popular market is wagering on which team will win the National Championship the following year. Whether Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State, Oklahoma or others, the odds move throughout the offseason as well, creating a fun market to wager on.
The 2020-21 college football season was massively impacted by COVID-19. But, the CFB season continued despite the concerns and we have seen quite a few great games, some top performances and clear odds movement on the National Title front. Alabama won the National Championship in 2020-2021, but who is the favorite for next year? Let’s take a look at the latest odds, news, and more.

Odds to Win CFB Title Shift as Camp Nears
With the college football season starting in late summer, the odds will continue to change and have to date. Just before camp opens, here’s a look at the odds to win the National Title as of July 2021.
- Alabama (+250)
- Clemson (+380)
- Ohio State (+550)
- Georgia Bulldogs (+600)
- Oklahoma (+750)
There was some odds movement in the early summer, as Alabama went from +225 to +250 and Clemson from +300 to +380. One large bit of movement is Ohio State from +550 to +400, as they are in a prime spot to make some noise this football season.
Alabama Crimson Tide Odds Rise after Initial Betting
With the Alabama football program opening at +300 to win the 2022 title, they were the clear favorite with Clemson. After initial wagering, Alabama’s price moved to +250, then +225, indicating some money coming in on the Crimson Tide. Clemson rose as well, going from +350 to +300, with Ohio State and Georgia right behind them.
This follows suit with the Heisman futures market, as expected quarterback Bryce Young’s odds rose to win that award too, which somewhat correlates with National Championship odds. Here’s the latest odds for the top 5 to win the CFB title, courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.
- Alabama (+225)
- Clemson (+300)
- Ohio State (+400)
- Oklahoma (+650)
- Georgia (+700)

Here’s a look at the opening odds for the 2022 college football season.
|San José State||+50000|
|New Mexico State||+75000|
|San Diego State||+75000|
The above table is the latest odds to win the 2022 CFB National Championship, courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook. Of course, these odds will greatly change leading up to the next season as there is a long way to go. We will see players leave school early, transfers, unexpected returns to school for some juniors, and more. This early in the game, there is always value to be had. Here is a look at our early picks for the CFB futures market.
Too Early 2022 National Title Picks – Spencer Rattler Leads the Way
Highest-graded QBs outside the pocket in 2020:

2. Zach Wilson – 86.4
3. Kyle Trask – 84.1 pic.twitter.com/PRStVs3ACe

The 2022 college football season will of course be without Trevor Lawrence, Justin Fields, Mac Jones, and Kyle Trask but there are still plenty of solid quarterbacks left on competing teams. The Heisman Trophy favorite Spencer Rattler and Oklahoma make for a terrific futures bet at +800 to win the National Championship. The only doubts for the Sooners are whether or not Lincoln Riley leaves for the NFL, or if their defense will be up to par to compete with the Alabama’s and Clemson’s of the world. At 8:1, we feel good about this value going forward to next season. In addition, Texas A&M return a lot of players from a team that just missed the playoff, and Clemson has some value as a team that is likely to make the college football playoffs again under new star QB DJ Uiagalelei.
Our early picks for the 2022 CFB Playoffs:
- Oklahoma (+800)
- Texas A&M (+3300)
- Clemson (+350)

Last season’s College Football National Championship Odds History
Week 15 CFB National Title Odds Update
Week 16 in college football is here, as Week 15 was a smaller slate. That is always due to the conference title games taking place in Week 16, which is certainly a big week for the CFB title odds. For the first time, a team crossed the price line as Alabama is now -143 to win the National Title. Week 16 will be a huge one. Here is a look at the prime games for this weekend that will cause a ruffle in the futures odds.
- Oklahoma vs. Iowa State
- Northwestern vs. Ohio State
- Clemson vs. Notre Dame
- Alabama vs. Florida
- Tulsa vs. Cincinnati
Week 14 CFB National Title Odds Update
The biggest news from Week 14 into Week 15 in college football was simple: the B1G changed the rules. This means that Ohio State is able to play in the B1G title game, which gives them a big chance to reach the college football playoffs, and in turn the National Championship. Here is a look at the top games for Week 15 that could cause some odds movement.
- Alabama vs. Arkansas
- UNC vs. Miami
- LSU vs. Florida
Unfortunately, many other games were PPD which makes it much tougher to see odds movement. Here is to a fun Week 15!
Week 13 CFB National Title Odds Update
It’s Week 14 in college football already, what a fast fall that was. With the first week of December upon is, it is truly getting near the end of the season and teams will be moving up and down in terms of odds if there is a loss. With that said, the top four teams seem quite locked in in terms of odds to win the National Title. Week 13 is a big one nevertheless, with some marquee games that could change the landscape. Here are a few:
- Ohio State vs. Michigan State
- Texas A&M vs. Auburn
- Syracuse vs. Notre Dame
- Florida vs. Tennessee
- Indiana vs. Wisconsin
- Clemson vs. Virginia Tech
Week 12 CFB National Title Odds Update
Week 13 in college football is upon us after Thanksgiving, with plenty of important games for the CFP rankings and the National Title futures. With Alabama, Ohio State, and Clemson at the top, one of those teams will need to lose to vastly shake up the top three. That fourth spot is up for grabs though. Here is a look at some of the top games in Week 13 that could shift the futures market:
- Notre Dame vs. North Carolina
- Ohio State vs. Illinois
- Kentucky vs. Florida
- Auburn vs. Alabama
- Pittsburgh vs. Clemson
- Northwestern vs. Michigan State
Week 11 CFB National Title Odds Update
It is Week 12 already in college football, and it is one of the most important weeks of the season for the National Title race, which in turn means it is very important for the CFP odds. Alabama still leads at +155 to win, but Ohio State and Clemson are close behind. These are the three teams in the thick of the race, and a loss from any of them will shake up the odds board. Here is a look at some marquee games for Week 12 in CFB that will affect the futures market:
- Indiana #9 vs. Ohio State #3
- Clemson #4 vs. Florida State
- Florida #6 vs. Vanderbilt
- Wisconsin #10 vs. Northwestern #19
- Kentucky vs. Alabama #1
With many ranked teams facing each other, this will certainly be a huge week of odds movement.
Week 10 CFB National Title Odds Update
There is no doubt what the big story is in Week 10, as Clemson lost to Notre Dame and dropped their National Title odds to +350. With that said, they are still ranked in the top four and are as talented as any team in the country. This is the time to buy Clemson at +350 as it will unlikely get any better from a payout standpoint. There have been a ton of cancellations looking ahead to Week 11 in CFB, so there will likely be minimal odds movement. Here is a look at the top CFB games for Week 11:
- Miami vs. VT
- Indiana vs. Michigan State
- Notre Dame vs. Boston College
- Arkansas vs. Florida
Many ranked teams have seen their games postponed, here are some of the games that were PPD:
- UGA vs. Missouri
- TAMU vs. Tennessee
- Auburn vs. Mississippi State
- Alabama vs. LSU
- Ohio State vs. Maryland
Week 9 CFB National Title Odds Update
After Week 9, the most notable story is Clemson…whose odds have fallen to +175. With Trevor Lawrence out again this week, the odds have reflected the chance that Clemson could possibly lose thus hurting their chances to make the college football playoff. In all reality, Clemson is still the favorite at +175. Week 10 presents some interesting matchups that may change the landscape of the National Championship odds. Here’s a look at some Week 10 marquee games:
- Michigan vs. Indiana
- BYU vs. Boise State
- Florida vs. Georgia
- Clemson vs. Notre Dame
The Clemson and Notre Dame game will be a massive one for the National Championship odds, as Clemson is only favored by six points.
Week 8 CFB National Title Odds Update
After Week 8, Clemson’s odds remained unchanged at +120 to win the title and they’re the betting favorite. The board behind them definitely changed, as Alabama rose to +275. In addition, Ohio State is creeping up the boards at +375 now to win the title. It is just those three at the top of the board right now, as the three CFB powerhouses that look to run the table in 2020 into 2021. Week 9 in CFB brings quite a few ranked teams in conference games that could shake the standings. Here is a look at some of the top games for this weekend in CFB:
- Georgia vs. Kentucky
- Michigan State vs. Michigan
- Texas vs. Oklahoma State
- Ohio State vs. Penn State
Week 7 CFB National Title Odds Update
Clemson continues to lead the way at +150, and are massive favorites against Syracuse in Week 8 so that will unlikely change. Alabama and Ohio State are tied at +300, as the Big Ten schedule begins play in Week 8. We will likely see Ohio State, Penn State, and Wisconsin odds move based on their play in Week 8’s games. There are quite a few big games this weekend that could affect odds, including the following:
- NC State vs. North Carolina
- Iowa State vs. Oklahoma State
- Michigan vs. Minnesota
Week 6 CFB National Title Update
After the sixth week of college football, the cream of the crop is starting to separate after some upsets, conference play, and more. At FanDuel Sportsbook, Clemson is now the favorite at +200 with Alabama down to +300. Did Nick Saban’s COVID-19 positive test cause any movement for Alabama? Unlikely, but if his Crimson Tide lose in Week 7 against the Georgia Bulldogs, Alabama’s title hopes will certainly fall while Georgia’s would certainly skyrocket. LSU and Florida was already postponed in Week 7, so keep an eye out for any other top-tier CFB teams to be PPD in Week 7. Here are the marquee games in Week 7:
- #3 Georgia vs. #2 Alabama
- LSU vs. #10 Florida (PPD)
- #5 UNC vs. Florida State
- #1 Clemson vs. Georgia Tech
Week 5 CFB National Title Update
After five weeks of college football, the schedule begins to tighten up in terms of “cupcakes” as the top teams are playing each other in Week 6. The odds have moved a bit, and Clemson is no longer the standalone favorite as they are tied with Alabama at +250 at the top of the chart. Week 6 will certainly change the odds though, as there are plenty of marquee games with title implications across many games. Here is a look at some of the games that will cause National Championship futures odds movement in Week 6:
- #4 Florida at #21 Texas A&M
- #19 Virginia Tech at #8 North Carolina
- #14 Tennessee at #3 Georgia
- #2 Alabama at Ole Miss
- #7 Miami (FL) at #1 Clemson
- Florida State at #5 Notre Dame
With each of the top five teams in action against teams that could pull off an upset, there is a potential for a large swing in CFB futures in Week 6.
Week 4 CFB National Title Update
After four weeks of college football, the matchups are getting more and more appealing. With the B1G returning, the PAC12 re-voting to resume play, and the SEC and ACC in full swing, we may see as close to a full college football season as possible under the circumstances. Looking at Week 4, the National Championship odds have adjusted slightly. Clemson is now the sole favorite at +200, increasing from +250 entering Week 3. In addition, the Florida Gators have passed the Georgia Bulldogs as they have +1200 odds to win the National Championship, behind Clemson, Ohio State, and Alabama.
Week 3 CFB National Title Update
As Week 3 begins, the SEC is back in action and the B1G has officially announced a return to play. Clemson is no longer the sole leader in terms of National Championship odds, as the Ohio State Buckeyes are +250 as well to win the title. Clemson and Ohio State are locked at the top ahead of Alabama, which flows directly like the Heisman Trophy odds. With the SEC (and other conferences) playing a different schedule, it will be interesting to see the National Championship odds movement throughout the season with conference-only schedules for most teams. This is shaping up to be quite the eventful college football season.
Week 2 CFB National Title Update
Clemson remains as the favorite to win the 2021 CFB National Championship at +200 DraftKings Sportsbook. Ohio State was second at +250, but was removed as there is was sure thing with the Big Ten this season. With that said, the Big Ten returned and Ohio State went back on the board at +250. Georgia, Alabama, Oklahoma, and LSU have all lost their quarterback to the NFL Draft, but some have top tier recruits filling the position. Keeping an eye on odds movement throughout the season will be key, as it will become more and more clear after the B1G returns. In mid-April, the Texas A&M Aggies jumped into the Top 10 at +3300 on DraftKings Sportsbook, but have fallen to +3300. As of July, the odds changed with new proposed conference-only schedules…hence the Clemson move from +250 to +150, then back to +200 after adjustments and the return of Ohio State to the board. In early August, Georgia’s odds rose from +1200 to +700. After the Big Ten teams were removed, odds jumped again, but moved for a third time after the Big Ten was put back on the board. In mid-September, the odds show Clemson, Ohio State, and Alabama as the clear top three.
