Odds to win National Championship Game 2016:
Florida State Seminoles (+450) – The bottom line for the Noles is that they really shouldn’t struggle much this season. They’ll be comfortable favorites in all of their regular season games, and they get both the undermanned Clemson Tigers and the Florida Gators on their home field. Even chumping up one loss wouldn’t be the end of the world necessarily for getting into the playoff this year, especially with the accolades which the Noles are carrying with the National Championship from last season under their belts.
Alabama Crimson Tide (+600) – How interesting would it be if QB Jacob Coker and QB Jameis Winston played against each other for all of the marbles this year? The Crimson Tide are just flat out always good, and we are never going to count them out for as long as Head Coach Nick Saban is there. Alabama should be looking for big time revenge against the Auburn Tigers back in Tuscaloosa, and we have to imagine that game will be won this time around. An undefeated season isn’t out of the question if Coker really is the real deal as many suspect that he is.
Oklahoma Sooners (+1200) – The Sooners are the odds on favorites to win the Big XII this year, and that’s a good indication that they are going to end up being in the college football playoff. Head Coach Bob Stoops has a lot of pressure on his back to perform this season though, as it has been a while since OU has been relevant in the national landscape. That pressure could end up being problematic going forward.
Ole Miss Rebels (+3300) – Head Coach Hugh Freeze has been working on these Rebels for quite some time, and he has a sophomore class this season which could be as good as any class in America. The team has a real opportunity to start out 4-0, and that’s when Alabama pays its visit to Oxford. If the Rebs can figure out how to get two of the three from Alabama at home, LSU on the road, and Auburn at home, there is a real chance to finish out at 10-2 or so. Is that really going to be good enough to play in the college football playoff? We wouldn’t count out the possibility of that being the case.
Texas Longhorns (+4000) – Heading back to the Big XII, let’s talk about the Longhorns here for a second. Head Coach Charlie Strong is at least going to bring a different mentality to Texas football, and though he says that this team is still at least two years away from really competing for a title, we aren’t all that sure that will be the case. Strong can really coach a defense up, and the talent has been here for years in Austin for this defense to be one of the best in this conference. If a quarterback can just step it up in the summer and lead this team, the Longhorns could be contenders in this conference sooner rather than later.
