Vegas Insider’s College Football Futures

July 22, 2009

Nobody does it better than Vegas – at least that’s what Stu Feiner tells us when we do our “Take the Double Extra Points” regular feature here. (insert cheap plug here: our Double Extra Lock in 2008: 8-3 ATS (73%) – Regular Season; 4-1 ATS (80%) – Bowl Season!!!)

Here are some college football futures from Vegas Insider you can start wagering on right at this moment if you need to lock something in (girl not included.)

Nebraska’s odds to win the National Championship: 50/1

  • Those are the same odds as Clemson, Georgia Tech, Oregon, and North Carolina.
  • There are 15 teams with better odds, including Oklahoma State at 30/1, Virginia Tech at 20/1, Texas at 11/2, and Oklahoma at 9/2.


Team Open
Texas 13/10
Oklahoma 8/5
Kansas 5/1
Nebraska 5/1
Oklahoma State 8/1
Missouri 20/1
Colorado 20/1
Texas Tech 20/1
Kansas State 40/1
Baylor 40/1
Texas A&M 40/1
Iowa State 75/1

Odds to Win the National Championship

November 12, 2008

With the college football regular season coming to a crashing halt here in a few weeks, I thought now would be a good time to make some money off of Florida winning the National Championship. With thanks to our boyhood idols at, I was a little surprised to see I’ll only be getting 2/1 odds for Florida to win – not really worth it. I did, however, find some teams with some interesting odds in the table below. I took the liberty in adding the BCS rank to each team.

Florida (4)
6/1 2/1
Southern California (6)
3/1 2/1
Alabama (1)
50/1 5/2
Oklahoma (5)
6/1 4/1
Texas(3) 10/1 4/1
Texas Tech (2)
50/1 4/1
Penn State (8)
50/1 25/1
Ohio State (11)
8/1 40/1
Oklahoma State (13)
100/1 40/1
FIELD (ALL OTHERS) 40/1 40/1
Florida State (19)
60/1 100/1
Boise State (9)
150/1 100/1
Brigham Young (17)
60/1 100/1
Missouri (12)
10/1 100/1
Utah (7)
150/1 100/1
Texas Christian (18)
150/1 250/1

If you need to resort to the “FIELD” to find your team on this list, your team has zero – not 40/1 – odds at winning the National Championship. While superfans of each of the teams towards the bottom of the table can probably come up with some 8 or 9-way idiotic scenario of a way they can still win, I’ll be happy to save you time.

One of these five teams will win – Florida, Alabama, Oklahoma, Texas Tech, or USC. USC gets one chance to earn their right to the BCS Championship game – the Big XII Championship – but as of right now, they’re out. The other four teams are all locked in the championship provided they win out. If you feel like making a little money but want to play it safe, do this:

Bet $200 on Florida AND a $100 on Oklahoma.

  • If Florida wins, you win $300.
  • If Oklahoma wins, you win $200.
