The College Football Playoff is almost here and the crowning of a National Champion is on the horizon. It’s no surprise that the biggest bets are coming in on Alabama, but there is a decent amount of action on longshot Notre Dame as well. Let’s take a deeper look at some of the National Title public betting splits on FanDuel Sportsbook.


National Title Public Betting Odds & Splits

Team Odds Handle % Bet %
Alabama -150 48% 22%
Clemson +240 32% 28%
Notre Dame +2200 10% 34%
Ohio State +590 10% 16%


Big Bets On Alabama

Surprise, surprise. The public loves Alabama. Although the odds-on favorite is only bringing in 22% of bets to win it all, they account for nearly half of the money on FanDuel Sportsbook. This makes complete sense. Bama is a massive favorite to beat Notre Dame in the Rose Bowl and will be favored against whoever comes out of the Sugar Bowl.

After missing out on the College Football Playoff for the first time last year, the Crimson Tide are back with a vengeance.


Clemson Is In The Mix

Clemson always seems to be in the mix this time of year, huh? Well, with Trevor Lawrence under center, the Tigers were always going to be a threat. The public is heavily invested in Clemson with 32% of the total handle and 28% of all bets coming in on Dabo Swinney’s squad. They are favored by 7.5 points against Ohio State in the Sugar Bowl. They have gone to the National Championship the last two years and four out of the last five seasons.


Small Bets On Notre Dame

With Notre Dame as the longest shot to win it all, they are attracting a lot of bets on FanDuel Sportsbook. In fact, the public has placed more bets on the Fighting Irish than any other team. With that said, the public isn’t putting many big-money bets on the Irish. They are only accounting for 10% of the total handle. At +2200 odds, it makes sense for Notre Dame backers to sprinkle a little bit of money on them.


Ohio State Trails The Pack

Ohio State has the toughest path to a National Title and we know the least about them. First things first, they will have to beat Clemson and likely Alabama to win it all. That’s a beast of a path. Add in the fact that they only played six games in the truncated Big Ten season this year and it’s tough to see them winning a National Championship this year. The public invested the least money (10% of the total handle) and placed the fewest amounts of bets (16%) on the Buckeyes.
