If you haven’t learned by now, the 2018 Alabama Crimson Tide are not to be messed with. Perfect record aside, this team hasn’t been able to be contained. Tua Tagovailoa is yet to take a fourth quarter snap, and the Crimson Tide offense is leading the nation with 56 points per game, while their defense which is allowing just 16 points per game is ranked No. 11 in the nation.
Alabama entered Week 6 at 4/5 odds to repeat as national champions and after cruising past Arkansas, they now enter Week 7 with 5/7 odds as the clear favorites. Can the Crimson Tide possibly be this far ahead of the rest of the competition? Well, to answer this we have the rest of the Vegas odds and after taking a look, don’t be surprised if the answer to that question is a resounding yes.
The next closest teams are Clemson, Ohio State, and Georgia who all come in at 15/2, followed by Notre Dame at 12/1.
Here is a full look at the national title odds, via Sports Book USA:
Clemson, Ohio State 9/2
Notre Dame 8/1
Oklahoma, Penn State 50/1
West Virginia 60/1
UCF, Wisconsin 80/1
Colorado, LSU, Miami 100/1

Set to take on Missouri and Tennessee over the next two weeks, Alabama’s next big test comes on November 3rd when they hit the road to take on No. 13 LSU. With the back half of the season approaching, everyone will be looking to see if Alabama can continue their dominance, and once again return to the College Football Playoffs for the chance to repeat as National Champions.
