2024 College Football National Title Odds
|San Jose State||+50000|
|New Mexico State||+100000|
|San Diego State||+100000|
The Georgia Bulldogs weren’t even one of the top two betting favorites for the college football national title, despite winning it a year ago.
Well guess who gets the last laugh … again.
Georgia, which trailed Alabama and Ohio State in the preseason college football title odds market, won its second straight championship in a victory over TCU Monday night.
The Horned Frogs, meanwhile, were arguably the hottest betting commodities all season. They nearly pulled off the unthinkable, going off at +20000 preseason.
Is there another diamond in the rough in the 2024 field?
It’s never too early to sort the pecking order out for next season when there’s money to be made. Our own Brett McMurphy already profiled his way-too-early Top 25 college football teams for next year.
Meanwhile, here’s how the betting odds stack up for the top programs expecting to contend come January 2024.
Georgia Bulldogs Title Odds: +300
The Bulldogs were roughly +400 to repeat entering the fall. Initial odds for 2024 display a little more respect for Kirby Smart’s squad.
The two-time defending champs enter the offseason with another loaded roster, plus both the second-best portal and recruiting grades among SEC teams.
Ohio State Buckeyes Title Odds: +700
The Buckeyes came up a hair-length shy of punching their bid to the national title game, losing to Georgia 42-41 in a Peach Bowl thriller.
It’s no longer Ohio State and everyone else in the Big Ten. However, Ryan Day has yet to lose more than one conference game in four years in Columbus.
Alabama Crimson Tide Title Odds: +700
If you’re itching to bet Nick Saban in somewhat of an underdog role, here’s your chance.
The Crimson Tide yet again bring in a star-studded crop next fall, pacing the entire country in recruiting rankings.
Michigan Wolverines Title Odds: +800
Jim Harbaugh’s future in Ann Arbor is cloudy, but guess who’s back? All-American running back Blake Corum — a Heisman contender before an injury late in the year.
The Wolverines are a legit playoff threat despite getting bounced in the semis two years running. They’re also the best bet against the spread in the nation since the start of 2021 (19-8-1, 70.4%).
