If I told you your life was on the line and you had to pick either this year’s OSU basketball team or next year’s OSU football team to win the national championship, who would you pick?

…go ahead and think about it, I’ll wait.

If your answer was “next year’s OSU football team” you’re wrong.

Or I think you’re wrong anyway.

Vegas actually thinks you’re right. Consider these odds (via Bovoda):

2013 OSU basketball team national title odds: 60/1
2013 OSU football team national title odds: 30/1

Wait, what? Yep, next year’s football team a 2x bigger favorite to win it all than this year’s basketball team even though 1.) it doesn’t have a starting QB yet and 2.) Marcus Smart has just spent the last three months displaying to us why you never bet against Marcus Smart.

Here are some of the other current national title odds…
