College Football Betting: Seven Teams Desperate for Four FBS Playoff Berths

For the first time all season, the NCAA’s top playoff squads remained the same as the previous week. With two weeks left until the postseason, the college football betting community has all the information they need to make educated decisions about how it might all unfold.

Just as they were last week, the No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide are the team to beat and the front-runners to suit up as the top seed in the first ever NCAA football postseason. Their -9.5 odds over rival Auburn in Week 15 should make for an interesting contest, but with 19/10 odds to win the championship, the Tide will look to make the matchup quick and painless for their opponents.

The games played by fringe contenders will be of much interest to bettors. Since only four teams can qualify for the playoffs, No. 5 TCU, No. 6 Ohio State and No. 7 are all running out of time to force their way into contention.

In addition to Alabama, No. 2 Oregon, No. 3 Florida State and No. 4 Mississippi State are on pace for a postseason appearance.

No matchups are lined up between contenders in the top seven, but that doesn’t mean the rankings can’t fluctuate; they’re due for a change after last week’s standstill.
