Post-Spring Football Odds Have Georgia Set to Repeat as National Champion

by WagerHome Blog on May 4, 2023

All of the college football teams in the country have completed their spring practice, and most players who entered the transfer portal have found new homes. And in the wake of that, we have a new top-25 preseason poll, and the odds on the national championship winner have been updated.

To no one’s surprise, the Georgia Bulldogs lead the way in both.

Georgia Bulldogs (+225)

Georgia has firmly supplanted Alabama as the premiere program in the country. Even though they continue to lose players to the NFL, this year’s Georgia Bulldogs team will have as many as 16 players returning who started at least one game in 2022.


Stetson Bennett and his two Georgia national championships are gone, but new Georgia quarterback Carson Beck might even be better.

Alabama (+500)

Alabama is all the way down in fifth place in the top-25, but they draw considerably shortened odds in the national championship picture because of history and reputation. The line of succession, from Jalen Hurts, Tua Tagovailoa, Mac Jones, and Bryce Young, is now suddenly not so certain. That question mark at QB may hold them back.

Ohio State (+600)

Ohio State is another team replacing a top quarterback who is off to the NFL, and many of the best players on their offensive line have also left Columbus for the pros. Kyle McCord is in his third year with the Buckeyes, and he is your likely starter at quarterback. But Devin Brown still has a chance to win the job by September.

Michigan (+1000)

Michigan is ranked No. 3 in the early polls, but is only fourth in the national championship picture. That is largely because despite playing in the College Football Playoff for two straight years, and beating Ohio State for two straight years, they continue to get worked in the national semifinals.

USC (+1400)

Caleb Williams is all you need to know about USC and why they are paying the fifth shortest odds to win the national championship. The quarterback is the favorite to repeat as the Heisman Trophy winner, and he will have the Trojans in the mix to make their first appearance in the College Football Playoff.

USC is only ranked 12th in the preseason polls right now because their defense was atrocious last year, and it appears to still be bad in 2023. But Williams is a marquee player and marquee name, and he is driving their odds down.

The last time USC was in the top-5 in the final AP poll was 2011.

The football season is still four months away, but right now, we have the NBA and NHL Playoffs going at full tilt, baseball is approaching the quarter pole, and this weekend we have the 149th running of the Kentucky Derby.

Even the best independent bookmakers can’t stay on top of it all, unless they are partnered with a top pay per head software provider like
