Alabama Still a Favorite to Win College Football Playoff Despite Loss
Don't write Alabama off just yet. Vegas isn't.
Despite losing to Auburn on Saturday night, the Crimson Tide still remains the favorite to win the national championship. The updated odds were released a day after the final regular season weekend and Alabama's were the same as Clemson and Oklahoma.
It's surprising considering the Crimson Tide will likely need help to even get into the playoff, but the oddsmakers must think the chances of that happening are pretty good. Alabama has been the betting favorite since opening odds were released and the team climbed as high as +125 this month.
The next set of College Football Playoff rankings will be released on Tuesday night and they will give us a better since of how the committee views Alabama.
