The college football season wraps up on Monday night when the Alabama Crimson Tide look to defend their National Championship in a rematch of last season’s CFP Championship game against the Clemson Tigers.
Even though the game has yet to be played, the Westgate Las Vegas Superbook has already released the odds for the 2018 National Champion. As you can see, Alabama is a hefty favorite to 3-peat (if they can beat Clemson on Monday night).
Michigan comes in tied for No. 6 on the list with Louisville as both teams have 12-1 odds. If you think that Michigan State will make their way back to the CFP, you should be sure to jump on their 100-1 odds.
One thing that caught our attention is the Minnesota Golden Gophers, who recently hired P.J. Fleck as their next head coach. Since the opening odds were released on January 7th, Minnesota’s odds have gone from 100-1 to 300-1. Apparently, Las Vegas does not believe that many people will be betting on Fleck to be doing any boat rowing in the “Land of 10,000 Lakes.”
