Tide remains solid BcS title favorite

Nick Saban AP

After surviving its first true test and real scare of the 2012 season, Alabama remains unbeaten and on track to become the first team to win back-to-back BcS titles.

It also remains the prohibitive favorite of one of the top gambling websites in the country.

In its updated set of odds, Bovada.com has the Crimson Tide as 2/3 favorites to capture the 2012 BcS championship.  Back in September, Alabama was the favorite at 19/10 according to the same website after entering 2012 at 5/1, which put them behind USC (3-1).

Three of the six remaining unbeatens fall in line behind Alabama, headed by Oregon at 3/1.  That’s up from 9/1 two months ago, which was up from 10/1 in the preseason.  Kansas State, which was 100-1 in September, is next at 11/2, while Notre Dame is at 15/2.

The only other undefeated team eligible for the postseason, Louisville, comes in at 75-1 after beginning 2012 at 300/1.

Below is the complete set of current BcS title odds, again courtesy of Bovada.com:

Alabama 2/3
Oregon 3/1
Kansas State 11/2
Notre Dame 15/2
Georgia 22/1
Florida State 35/1
Florida 35/1
Louisville 75/1
Clemson 100/1

    I said this earlier and I’ll say it again. Bama can not beat Oregon. The way Oregon runs thier offense takes Bama away one of Bama’s greatest strenghts, thier ability to adjust. And, Bama’s offense won’t be able to keep up. And, I’m a LSU fan and a big SEC fan. But, mark it down if that’s the championship game our streak comes to a end

    I am a Gator and a big SEC fan as well. You might want to back off of that prediction a little bit. Oregon is a great team, no doubt, but they are not on the level of LSU. Your defense is incredible and Alabama’s offense was able to score 3 TD’s on your defense. That is an incredible feat against LSU this year. Oregon does not have your defensive line, linebackers and secondary. Your defensive line does not get manhandled by anybody, including the Tide who have the #1 and ridiculously talented offensive line in the nation. I don’t think Oregon can handle Alabama’s offensive lines run blocking, and for that they will lose. Alabama’s defense is amazing as well as you can attest, being able to be dominated in time of possession by LSU, but bending and not breaking. They are the most in shape defense as well as being disciplined in the nation. Oregon’s offensive line is not an SEC offensive line such as LSU’s. With you JC QB finally maturing I don’t think Oregon could beat you. The problem with LSU this year was with their QB, not their entire offense. Oregon has an amazing offense, but give Nick Saban a month to gameplan his defense against that offense and I you are looking at another SEC BCS Crown. Mark it down.

    I hate the aggies and don’t like that other team but I hope they beat the low tide this weekend. A score of 3-0 would be fine. The sec doesn’t seem as strong this year. Would like to see K-St win it all! Hook’em Horns!!!

    greggatx,

    You lost a little piece of your soul that you’ll never get back by rooting for aggie. Shame on you sir.

    Tx,

    The whole country is rooting for the Aggies today, save for a few moonshiners in the “Heart of Dixie.”

    No, just the dumpster hippies in the pacific northwest.

    I can understand the bitterness Texas fans have against Alabama. Watching the thumping Alabama gave them in the nc game, and seeing mccoy’s daddy saving his sons NFL career by taking him out of the game. Good to see that NFL thing working out. Hang it up horns!

    @hor2012–Aggies ran off 20 pts—in the first quarter. Indeed, Tide didn’t adjust and lost, just as you said Oregon would do to them. I’m only sorry we won’t get to see the Ducks run over an SEC team this year and have to listen to them whine like—forever!
