Wednesday September 19,2012 : NCAA Football Betting – Updating the BCA Championship Odds
The NCAA football season is well underway and already there have been several surprises to keep the bettors on their toes. While Matt Barkley and USC have been living up to expectations, LSU is turning out to be a sort of disappointment. The experts also did not expect Notre Dame to come out and be the dominating force that it has been this season.
While many people still believe that the National Championship is USC's to lose, the changing dynamics in college football have caused the odds for the other teams to shift a little. Let's take a look at the newest odds that the football betting sites have given to some of the top contenders in the country.
Alabama Crimson Tide (3.50 to 1 Odds)
Most people expected the Crimson Tide to have a dominating defense, but few people were expecting the Tide to be able to throw the ball like it has. The offensive prowess of the Crimson Tide has pulled it into a tie with USC for National Championship odds. The experts will definitely be watching to see if either the Tide or the Trojans flinch at all on the way to the BCS National Championship game.
USC Trojans (3.50 to 1 Odds)
The Trojans are doing everything that everyone expected it to do and dominating opponents in ways that it was expected to dominate. Matt Barkley looks like a leading Heisman Trophy candidate and the USC offense in general looks pretty potent. The only thing that may derail the Trojans is its pass rush, but time will tell if USC will even need a potent pass rush to be National Champions.
Florida State Seminoles (6.50 to 1 Odds)
It has been a while since Florida State has been considered a real contender for the national title, but the first three weeks of the season showed a Seminoles team that is a force to be reckoned with. Florida State may have problems matching its defense up with USC's offense. But if it came down to battle between Florida State and Alabama, then the Seminoles would stand more than a fighting chance.
LSU Tigers (6.50 to 1 Odds)
There is a really good chance that the Tigers odds will drop if LSU does not completely dominate the Auburn Tigers this weekend. LSU has looked suspect so far this season and its offense is not dominating teams like it needs to. The LSU defense appears to be solid, but if LSU cannot start putting points on the board, then it may not be long before the odds experts are talking more about teams like Oregon or Georgia than they are talking about the LSU Tigers.
