When last we left the wonderful world of degenerate gambling, Oregon and Kansas State were the heavy favorites to claim the 2012 BcS title following Alabama’s upset loss to Texas A&M.
Now that both the Ducks and Wildcats were stunned in upsets the same weekend? Roll Tide roll. Again.
As they do every week this time of the season, Bovada.com has updated its odds to win the BcS championship and, surprise, Alabama is back as the overwhelming favorite at 5/8. Just a week ago and before the SEC was back in the BcS driver’s seat yet again, the Tide was back at 17/2.
Notre Dame, the lone remaining unbeaten among teams still eligible for the postseason, is next up at 5/2. The Irish had been behind both Oregon and K-State last week at 6/1.
And, if Alabama and Notre Dame happen to meet in the title game? Bovada has installed the Tide as early 10-point favorites.
Georgia, which could clinch a berth in the BcS championship game with wins over in-state rival Georgia Tech this weekend and Alabama in the SEC title game the next, has jumped from 20/1 to 13/2.
The two latest upset victims are the only other teams listed, with Oregon at 17/2 and the Wildcats at 20/1.
