Nothing that’s transpired their first two games of the 2013 season has changed the view of Alabama in the eyes of Bovada.lv. If anything, it’s been enhanced slightly.
In tandem with the release of the latest Heisman odds, Bovada released its odds for the 2013 BCS national championship and, as expected, the Tide is the prohibitive favorite. At 2/1, the Tide has seen a slight uptick from its 5/2 preseason odds released Aug. 27.
Oregon, however, is closing fast, leapfrogging Ohio State and coming in at 4/1 after ending the preseason at 9/1. The Buckeyes have dropped slightly to 13/2 from 6/1.
Clemson (20/1 in late August) and Florida State (22/1) are at 12/1, with LSU (18/1) and Stanford (16/1) next at 14/1.
Texas A&M, likely due to the home loss to Alabama, has slipped from 14/1 and behind just Alabama, Ohio State and Oregon all the way to longshots at 100-1. That’s the same as the likes of Florida and Northwestern.
Another Texas school has taken an even more precipitous drop. In late August, Texas stood at 20/1, the same odds as Clemson and ahead of teams such as Florida State and South Carolina; after being embarrassed the past two weeks, the Longhorns aren’t even listed in Bovada‘s latest release.
Louisville, despite starting the season 3-0 and winning those games by an average of 31 points, has now fallen from 14/1 to 25/1.
