If we aren’t talking basketball, we might as well start talking football for 2016. Bovada recently released its 2017 CFP National Championship odds and Oklahoma State is involved (sort of). Here’s a look at the odds.

Alabama: 7-1
Clemson: 15-2
Baylor: 12-1
Michigan: 12-1
Ohio State: 12-1
LSU: 14-1
Oklahoma: 14-1
Stanford: 14-1
Notre Dame: 14-1
Florida State: 16-1
Ole Miss: 22-1
Oregon: 22-1
Tennessee: 22-1
Florida: 33-1
Georgia: 33-1
Houston: 33-1
Iowa: 33-1
Michigan State: 33-1
TCU: 33-1
USC: 33-1
UCLA: 40-1
Wisconsin: 50-1
Arkansas: 50-1
Auburn: 50-1
Louisville: 50-1
Nebraska: 50-1
North Carolina: 50-1
Oklahoma State: 50-1
Texas A&M: 50-1

Bias aside, that’s actually a pretty good number for a team that went 10-3 this season. Nebraska?! Get out of here with that. I watched Iowa roll them at the end of last year. A&M? Jake Hubenak is going to lead A&M to a title? Anything can happen, I guess, but those two see a little more far-fetched than OSU getting a couple of breaks with its schedule and running the table (although that also seems pretty far-fetched).

The real value here is probably with Ohio State at 12-1 or  Stanford at 14-1. Those are teams that could legitimately get into the CFB Playoff with a loss (which is half the battle). It will be interesting to see where these numbers sit in, say, July or August compared to where they are right now. I bet OSU is 40-1 when the season is upon us.
