Wanna bet? Lions have sixth-best odds of winning national title

Penn State’s odds of winning the College Football Playoff are 28-to-1, making the Nittany Lions the sixth-best choice for the national title.

According to, these teams have the best odds to win the CFP:

Perhaps a little surprisingly, Ohio State (11-4) has better odds than Alabama (13-4) does to win the national title. The fact that Clemson is leading the way is no surprise.

Michigan is surprisingly high on the list with the eighth-best odds. The Wolverines (40-1) are considered the third-best team in the Big Ten East.

Wisconsin is 40-1, making the Badgers the 10th-best choice.

How Oklahoma (66-1) is still on the list with two losses is highly questionable.
