2021 College Football National Championship Odds

The current college football national champions are barely a couple weeks old and here are the top 10 teams I am keeping an eye on during the offseason for a potential championship run next season. Click here fo the latest college football national championship odds.

2021 College Football National Championship Odds

Clemson +250

While the Tigers fell to LSU in this year’s national championship game, Dabo Swinney has built a program that has seen some sustained success for nearly a decade now. No matter which players depart from this year’s team, Clemson still has gifted quarterback Trevor Lawrence leading the way, not to mention another incoming class of elite recruits looking to help the Tigers improve on their jaw-dropping 29-1 record in their last 30 games.

Ohio State +350

The Buckeyes will suffer their fair share of losses from this year’s team, including superstar defensive end Chase Young and star running back J.K. Dobbins. Still, Ohio State has supremely gifted quarterback Justin Fields back under center – and the nation’s top recruiting class on the way.

Alabama +700

For the first time in ages, Nick Saban has more question marks than answers, starting with who his new No. 1 quarterback is going to be next season. Still, Saban has fielded perennially-powerful defenses and just missed out on a berth in this season’s CFP.

Georgia +900

Starting quarterback Jake Fromm, fleet-footed running back D’Andre Swift and offensive lineman Andrew Thomas are all off to the NFL Draft, but Kirby Smart has already found his new starting signal-caller thanks to the transfer of former Wake Forest signal-caller Jamie Newman. There will be some rebuilding going on with the Dawgs, but Smart has proven he can field an elite defense every year no matter who suits up.

LSU +1000

The Tigers have suffered a pair of humongous losses with the departure of Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Joe Burrow and offensive coordinator Joe Brady who is off to the Carolina Panthers. Those two losses will test seriously test the Tigers in 2020 and keep in mind, no team has won consecutive national championships in the playoff era.

Oklahoma +3000

Does it even matter anymore who’s under center for Lincoln Riley at Oklahoma? While the Sooners will have their fourth new starter under center in as many seasons, Riley has proven to be one of the best offensive minds in all of football. Still, if Oklahoma never manages to learn how to play competent defense, expect the Sooners to be bridesmaids again in 2020.

Notre Dame +3300

Starting quarterback Ian Book will be back under center for Brian Kelly in 2020 and the Fighting Irish have an All-American candidate in linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, but when it comes to competing with the likes of elite programs like Clemson, Ohio State and Alabama, the Irish simply don’t have the talent across the board that it will take to win a national championship.

Texas +4000

The Longhorns underachieved in a big way despite starting off the 2019 season ranked in the preseason Top 10. While starting quarterback Sam Ehlinger returns, the Longhorns have a bunch of question marks, particularly on defense, as they incorporate a new offensive play-caller and defensive coordinator in 2020.

Texas A&M +5000

Now, heading into Year 3 of the Jimbo Fisher era, Texas A&M returns star quarterback Kellen Mond and star running back Isaiah Spiller as well as the vast majority of their starters on defense. With Alabama and LSU both having a ton of question marks heading into next season, don’t be surprised to see the Aggies take a step forward in 2020.

Penn State +5000

James Franklin has turned Penn State into a perennial national championship contender that has won 11 games in thee of the last four seasons. Franklin has a new offensive coordinator coming in and a new offensive line coach, but quarterback Sean Clifford returns after his first year as the starter and the Nittany Lions have been elite defensively the past several seasons. Now, if only they can get past Ohio State.

Michigan +5750

Jim Harbaugh has another quarterback battle looming and that just doesn’t look good for a Wolverines program that keeps coming up short, mostly because of the pitiful play they’ve gotten under center since Harbaugh took over. I’ve got at least four Big Ten teams (Ohio State, Penn State, Wisconsin and Minnesota) being better than Michigan in 2020.

Wisconsin +6000

I know the Badgers are losing superstar running back Jonathan Taylor to the NFL Draft, but head coach Paul Chryst has fielded an elite defense every year since taking over and starting quarterback Jack Coan should be better in his second year as a start in 2020, even though the loss of Taylor worries me.
