The 2015 seasons is done and in the books (congrats to the Roll Tide Empire, yet again), which must mean that it's already time to start thinking about the 2016 seasons -- and the 2017 College Football Playoff, right? Well, Vegas is already ahead of you, with odds for who's going to win the 2017 National Championship, courtesy of Bovada.
|Ohio State||12/1||Miami (FL)||66/1|
|Ole Miss||22/1||Virginia Tech||75/1|
|Michigan State||33/1||Georgia Tech||100/1|
Iowa checks in a 33/1, tied with Michigan State for third-best in the Big Ten (behind Ohio State and Michigan, both at 12/1) and the best odds that Iowa has had at this point in probably a decade (or at least since the lead-up to the 2010 season). In all, nine Big Ten teams were given odds to win the title:
12/1: Ohio State
33/1: Michigan State
100/1: Penn State
That's, right, 50/1 on Nebraska. No, I don't know why, either. But, hey, if you feel strongly about throwing away money on Tommy Armstrong, go for it.
Anyway, 33/1 odds for Ferentz and C.J. to hoist up the Giant Champagne Flute in Tampa next January. Not too shabby.
