Oregon Climbs In AP Poll, College Football Playoff Odds After Win Over Michigan State

Filed under: NCAA Football Betting Odds |

Oregon DucksThe Florida State Seminoles remain on top of the college football world despite the fact that they lost some votes because of Oregon’s big win over Michigan State. After trailing in the third quarter, the Ducks stormed back to take control of the game and pull off arguably the most impressive win of Week 2.

Oregon moved up to No.2 in the latest edition of the Associated Press Top-25, earning 16 first-place votes. Florida State received 46 place votes, which is 11 fewer than last week. An underwhelming 37-12 victory over Citadel in which they were out-scored in the second half wasn’t exactly a head turner. The Seminoles were up 34-0 when Jameis Winston and the majority of the first-string came out though.

The less-than-fantastic performance from FSU is not enough to drop them in the latest 2014-15 college football championship betting lines available at Bovada Sportsbook. The Seminoles remain on top at 9/2 to win back-to-back titles. Of course, it’s no secret how difficult it hasbeen to win two championships in a row, and with the new playoff format it is now even harder.

Oregon may be No.2 in the polls, but they are third in betting odds behind the Alabama Crimson Tide. Alabama won 41-0 over a woeful FCS school on Saturday, a pretty run-of-the-mill performance. The Crimson Tide sit at 7/1 to win it all, but there are still plenty of questions surrounding the quarterback situation.

The Ducks aren’t far behind Alabama though, installed 15/2 which is ever so slightly higher than the 7/1 line the Crimson Tide have been set with.

Five of the top-10 favorites to win the college football championship after Week 2 come from the SEC. We’ve mentioned Alabama, but Auburn, Georgia, Texas A&M and LSU are also right in the mix.

Many are high up on Georgia, but they’ve only played one game. The Bulldogs dominated Clemson, but had this last week off. Georgia goes up to No.21 South Carolina on Saturday where a lot more will probably be learned about this team. The Bulldogs are a very small favorite on the road, but that is a testament to many believing that this team might be the real deal. Of course, there is still so much football to be played that it will work itself out on the field.

Texas A&M is the other team besides Georgia to receive a huge jump in the polls. The Bulldogs and the Aggies both come in at 12/1 on the payout. Texas A&M has the tougher side of the SEC division, still having LSU, Alabama, and Auburn on the schedule upcoming. Georgia plays just one of those three in Auburn.

Speaking of last year’s runner up, Auburn is a top-five favorite currently, slated at 10/1 behind FSU, Alabama, Oregon, and Oklahoma.
