Bovada Online Sportsbook released its college football odds for the 2014 season. The sportsbook has the odds on a number of schools’ chances of competing for the national championship, and its own conference.
So, what does Bovada think of the Texas Longhorns?
Texas is given 50-to-1 odds of winning the college football FBS Championship. These are the same odds given to the Michigan Wolverines and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. Texas is breaking in a new coaching staff, and it appears Las Vegas doesn’t have much confidence in the program short term. Quarterback issues probably also played into the odds posted.
The Oklahoma Sooners are the top Big 12 school with 9-to-1 odds. The Sooners are expected to compete for the conference championship, and don’t forget the hurting the Sooners put on the Alabama Crimson Tide in the Allstate Sugar Bowl. Oklahoma has a roster littered with top talent. Only Alabama, the Florida State Seminoles and the Oregon Ducks have better odds at winning the national championship than the Sooners. The Baylor Bears are next, at 28-to-1. A high-octane offense guided by Bryce Petty makes the Bears a fun team to watch. The defense, on the other hand, has been Baylor’s Achilles heel. The Bears are predicted by many college football pundits to win the conference.
When it comes to winning the Big 12 title, Texas fans should like these odds. Bovada gives the Longhorns 6-to-1 odds of winning the conference. Oklahoma has 2-to-3 odds, while Baylor is given an 11-to-4 chance at capturing the title.
Not happy with how Vegas views the Longhorns? This should cheer you up.
Bovada gives the Texas A&M Aggies 66-to-1 odds of winning the national championship. Texas A&M has 20-to-1 odds of winning the SEC Championship, and 14-to-1 of winning the SEC West. When it comes to winning the West, only the Arkansas Razorbacks have worse odds.
