Alabama Crimson Tide Increase Lead On Latest BCS Championship Odds

Filed under: NCAA Football Betting Odds |

Sometimes winning just isn’t good enough.

At least that has been the case for the LSU Tigers over the last couple of weeks. The Tigers have dropped a spot in the Associated Press Top-25 each of the last two weeks, though when looking at it, it’s hard to argue for them. Especially for this last performance on Saturday in a 38-22 win at home over Towson. In fact, LSU trailed for some of the first half.

LSU dropped from No.3 in the poll last week to No.4.

Leaping over the Tigers in the Week 6 edition of the poll are the Florida State Seminoles. And you can bet that after a lackluster performance on the road against South Florida, the Noles are as surprised as anyone to move up a spot. But that’s exactly what happened after back-to-back questionable performances by LSU.

The Alabama Crimson Tide are now the unanimous No.1 team in the AP Poll, garnering all 60 of the first place votes.

Oregon remains a solid No.2, after handling Washington State easily.

The Georgia Bulldogs round out the top-five, getting a home win over Tennessee in a shootout, 51-44. So much for the SEC defenses, who decided to take the week off. That’s ok, it made for some exciting television. The Bulldogs will go on the road next week where they will face No.6 South Carolina, who scored 31 unanswered points in the second half on Saturday against Kentucky after trailing 17-7 at halftime.

Looking at the latest BCS National Championship betting odds, it’s Alabama who has made an even bigger jump into the role of the favorite, now going off at 3/2.

But despite taking the fall, LSU still sits in second on the list of BCS favorites, likely because they get a shot at Alabama where they would move up to the favorite should they get the win. The tigers get that game at home as well.

Florida State is just behind LSU at 11/2. They sit at 5-0, already having won their toughest game on the schedule. But there are a ton of trap games still sitting out there.

Oregon comes in at 7/1, still having to play USC potentially twice. First in the regular season, and then a possible PAC 12 championship game matchup.

And just like in the rankigns, Georgia rounds out the top-five favorties here, set at 10/1. The Bulldogs will have arguably their biggest game of the season on Saturday on the road agaisnt the Gamecocks.
