Basically, it’s Alabama and everyone else. With one week to go in the regular season, and then a round of conference championship games, the College Football Playoff picture is startling to crystalize.
But there is still plenty of speculation over who will be in, and who will be left out.
OddsShark released their updated odds of who stands the best chance to win the National Championship. They’ve provided odds for all the teams currently listed in the top 10, according to the College Football Playoff committee.

What is most telling about these odds, is that OddsShark is buying Miami. In fact, they aren’t even among the top four teams with the best odds on this list. With a major conference championship game looming against Clemson at the end of the season, there are doubts as to whether or not the Hurricanes will find themselves in the playoff when all is said and done.
Alabama is the overwhelming favorite, and despite an ugly loss to Syracuse earlier this season, oddsmakers still believe Clemson has a chance at repeating as champions.
Wisconsin fans can’t be happy with this list; their odds are only slightly better than that of the two-loss Ohio State Buckeyes.
