Alabama, Oregon early favorites to win 2013-14 BCS Championship
Alabama and Oregon are leading the way in the early odds to win the 2013-14 BCS national championship.
Alabama is only a few hours into its new status as repeat BCS national champions, and the oddsmakers have already named the Crimson Tide the odds-on favorites to win their third straight title in 2013.
Bovada (@BovadaLV) has already released the betting odds for next season, and there are familiar names at the top of the list. Alabama, coming off its third national title in four years under Nick Saban, is the favorite at 5-to-1, with Oregon and Ohio State falling behind the Tide in the early calculations. The Ducks receive the benefit of Chip Kelly's return, along with many important pieces from this year's Fiesta Bowl champion roster. The Buckeyes will look to run the table again after going 12-0 in an NCAA-sanctioned year under Urban Meyer.
Our own Chris Huston has already compiled his Way-Too-Early Top 10 for the 2013 season here at the Eye On College Football, and check out the full odds board below from Bovada.
