Alabama’s football team has unreal odds to win the national championship.

The odds for the top teams are as follows, according to SuperBookUSA:

  • Bama 2/5
  • Clemson, Notre Dame 6/1
  • Georgia, Michigan, Ohio State 12/1
  • OU 20/1
  • LSU 40/1
  • Washington State 50/1
  • UCF 60/1
  • West Virginia 100/1
  • Texas 300/1
  • Penn State 500/1
  • Fresno State, Houston, Kentucky, Iowa, Utah 1,000/1

For those of you who don’t know a ton about gambling, that puts Alabama’s odds at roughly 70 percent to win the whole thing. That is an insanely high percentage with several games left in the season. (RELATED: The Latest AP College Football Poll Is Here. Number Two Might Have Your Head Spinning)

Can you blame the oddsmakers for setting these numbers? Obviously not. The Tide have looked unstoppable on every front. Now, they haven’t played anybody I’d say is super elite yet. That will all change this weekend when they step on the field against LSU. If they blowout the Tigers, then we’ll know everything there is to know about Nick Saban’s squad.

If you want my value pick with these odds, it’s obviously LSU. At 40/1, you might as well put a little down. If they upset Alabama, which is a huge “if,” they’ll be in the driver’s seat of the SEC. It’s worth the risk.

As for my Wisconsin Badgers, you’ll notice they’re not on the list because we’re awful. Absolutely heartbreaking.
