The 2020 college football season isn’t even completely underway, but the odds to win the College Football Championship continue to shift each week. After a surprising Week 4 slate of games that saw big favorites LSU and Oklahoma lose, the odds to win it all look a bit different.
Despite some of the jockeying in the top 10 of College Football Championship odds, the top three favorites are still a cut above the rest. Clemson is off to an impressive 2-0 start and has a fairly easy schedule in the ACC this year. They are out in front of the Buckeyes and the Crimson Tide for the time being.
Speaking of the Buckeyes, Ohio State has yet to play a game (and won’t until Oct. 24), but they are still firmly in the mix for a championship. The all-Big Ten schedule is looking favorable for Ohio State and as long as they don’t have any major slip-ups, they have a clear path to the College Football Playoff.
Alabama is going to be Alabama again. Year in and year out, Nick Saban has his team ready to compete for championships. With that said, navigating the SEC is never an easy task and with Bama set for a brutal slog through the conference. As it stands, six of their opponents are in the top 25 and two are in the top 10.
On the bright side for the Crimson Tide, they will get to avoid the Florida Gators due to the shortened season. Florida is fourth in odds to win the College Football Championship this season, although they are a distant +1200 compared to Bama’s +400. With that said, if both teams live up to their potential, they are destined for a meeting in the SEC Championship Game.
Georgia, who plays Auburn in Week 5, rounds out the top five with +2000 odds, but they will face the same challenges as Alabama and Florida. The SEC is going to be a beast to navigate this year.
