College football has been over for all of three weeks, so it’s time to prognosticate the successes of next year and for handicappers to set up the books for a plethora of money-moving bets.

Caesar’s Palace has apparently set odds for every FBS team based on their chance to win the whole thing in 2019-20.

Oklahoma State comes in at 150-1 to take home that weird-looking trophy sculpture thing. That gives the Pokes the third-best odds among Big 12 teams.

Texas — 15-1
Oklahoma — 20-1
Oklahoma State — 150-1
Texas Tech — 200-1
Baylor — 200-1
Iowa State — 200-1
TCU — 300-1
Kansas State — 500-1
Kansas — 1,000-1

A returning quarterback and a two-year upward trajectory lands the Longhorns ahead of the Sooners as the favorite to come out of the Big 12. It looks like the oddsmakers like OSU to have a bounceback year with a new OC and QB after its 7-6 finish in 2018.

Alabama is the odds-on favorite at 5/2 and reigning champ Clemson comes in next at 2-1. Other notable contenders according to Vegas are Georgia at 6-1, Mike Yurcich’s new team, Ohio State, given 15-1 odds and Michigan with 20-1 odds.
