The 2015 College Football Betting Odds Are Out, And Vegas Went ALL-IN On Two Schools
With only seven months remaining until the 2015 College Football season, Vegas figured Friday the 13th was a good day to kick off the 2015 College Football betting season. Two things become immediately apparent: Vegas is very high on the Buckeyes and the Horny Toads of Fort Worthless.
After breaking or tying 74 records during their historic run to the National Championship, the Ohio State Buckeyes are the favorite to win it all next year at +450, with the Horned Frogs of TCU coming in just behind at +800.
The rest of the pack is a collection of familiar faces: (3) Alabama +900, (4) Baylor +1700 (really?!), (5) USC +1800, (6) Auburn +2000, (7) Oregon +2000, (8) Clemson +2400, (9) Michigan State +2400, (10) Oklahoma +2500, (11) UCLA +2500, (12) LSU +2600, (13) Georgia +2900, (14) Florida State +3000, (15) Notre Dame +3400, (16) Mississippi +4000, (17) Oklahoma State +4000, (18) Arkansas +4500, (19) Texas +5000, (20) Stanford +5500, (21) Georgia Tech +6000, (22) Arizona +6500, (23) Arizona State +6500, (24) Florida +6500, (25) Texas A&M +6500.
Things that immediately jump off the page:
Baylor AND TCU had a nice Cinderella run, it’ll be hilarious to watch them both implode and get exposed this coming season. Vegas currently has TCU quaterback Trevone Boykin at +750 to win The Heisman, as this year’s frontrunner…which is also hilarious. They (and Baylor) can keep screaming all they want about how they were slighted last season, but they’re both second rate programs who will get exposed this year.
Only 8 of the top 25 are from the SEC, I guess Vegas isn’t as hot on the SEC as ESPN…but it’s pretty close.
With the loss of Jameis Winston, the Seminoles of Florida State are expected to lose the ACC to Clemson. Which is hilarious, because FSU is as deep as any team in the nation pulling in a #3 recruiting class this year (Rivals), #4 last year (to Clemson’s #13), 10th ranked class in 2013 (Clemson #14), and #6 class in 2012 (Clemson #14). Because as we all learned recently, FSU squeezes as much talent out of their recruits as Clemson does….So this logic makes zero sense considering Clemson’s QB is a constant injury risk, and all the concern over FSU stems from the loss of their QB.
I know, I know…I found some way to make this all about my ‘Noles, but they’re good dammit! Don’t sleep on Jimbo!
