Back in February, four other teams had, per Bovada.lv, better odds to win the 2016 College Football Playoff than LSU. Six months later, and less than a month before the start of a new season, the Tigers lag behind just one.
Currently, Alabama, 7/1 in February, is listed as Bovada‘s favorite at 6/1. Right behind them is SEC West rival LSU at 7/1 and 2016 playoff runnerup Clemson at 17/2.
Ohio State, Bovada‘s wagering favorite earlier this year, has seen its odds grow longer at 9/1. Those are the same odds hated rival Michigan (15/2 in February) is getting from the gambling website.
Houston (66/1) and Boise State (150/1) are the only Group of Five teams listed. BYU (250/1) as a football independent (for now?) is also included.
