College Football Betting: Top 4 BCS Championship Prospects

As the 2013 College football season approaches to its official kick off, it’s time to review the top favorite teams to battle for this year’s BCS Championship title and their respective betting odds. While college football betting fans have literally hundreds of options to bet on season, only a selected list of teams stand a real chance to reach the biggest game of the post season and claim NCAA Football title.

So let’s get ready to review the top five college football teams based on the BCS odds provided by online betting site

2013 BCS Odds:

No.1 – Alabama Crimson Tide (+180)

Since the odds for the 2013-14 BCS odds were released, the Alabama is the clear favorite to take its third consecutive BCS title. This doesn’t come as a surprise; after all, Alabama has been a dominant force in college football, winning three of the past four BCS National Championships. In addition to leading the BCS odds, the current NCAA champ and back-to-back BCS winner also leads the betting lines to win the Southeastern Conference title listed at -125.

Regular Season Wins (Total): 11 (over/under -115)

No. 2 – Oregon Ducks (+450)

The Ducks closed the 2012 season as the No.2 team in the nation, according to the AP and Coaches poll. Oregon has cemented as one of the most consistent teams in the past decade, reaching a BCS bowl game in every year since 2010. Last season, the Ducks defeated the Kansas State Jayhawks 35-17 in the Fiesta Bowl to secure a 12-1 record.

Despite losing head coach Chip Kelly to the Philadelphia Eagles, Oregon owns the second-best title odds to win the BCS at +450, and is also the top favorite program to win PAC 12 Conference (+150).

Regular Season Wins (Total): 11 (over +125, under -155)

No. 3 – Ohio State (+500)

The big time favorite to win Big Ten, the Buckeyes finished the 2012 season undefeated with 12 wins (12–0 overall, 8–0 in the Big Ten). Led by Coach Urban Meyer, who won two national championships with the Florida Gators, the team was ineligible for the Big Ten championship game and any bowl appearance for the 2012 season due to findings of an investigation conducted by the NCAA during the previous season. Despite last season’s ban, this year the team is expected to stretch the pattern and win it all.

Regular Season Wins (Total): 10 ½ (over -165, under +135)

No. 4 – Texas A&M (+800)

Coming off a surprising 11-2 season, which includes a win over the No. 1 team, in the nation, the Alabama Crimson Tide, the Texas A&M Aggies closed a highly successful year finishing 5th in the AP Poll, the highest ranking for the program since 1956.

Now, before you risk your money betting on the Aggies, keep something in mind. Things can change dramatically for Texas A&M in the coming days. Heisman winner Johnny Manziel return is hanging from a thread. Manziel’s eligibility for the 2013 season is currently under question after reports surfaced that he got several thousand dollars in payment for signing autographs in January 2013. If Manziel gets a suspension for violating the NCAA code, the Aggies chances of winning the BCS Championship this season are likely to see a considerable reduction.

Regular Season Wins (Total): N/A.
