Georgia is the favorite to win the national title after the first College Football Playoff rankings.

The first playoff rankings were released Tuesday night, and Georgia, Alabama, Michigan State and Oregon were the top four squads. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

In the odds to win the national title on FansDuel as of Wednesday morning, the Bulldogs were at -110 to win the championship.

Alabama is at +350, Ohio State is +400 and no other team is even close. Most notably, undefeated Cincinnati is +5000.

It’s amazing to me that after the first playoff rankings, we only have a grand total of three squads that are +400 or better in the odds, and Ohio State is the team on the outside looking in at five.

Right or wrong, it goes to show that oddsmakers believe this race is down to three teams and only three squads.

As a college football junkie, it’s hard to disagree with Georgia, Alabama and OSU leading the way. The Bulldogs will be undefeated when they meet Alabama in the SEC title game and OSU will likely win the Big Ten as a 12-1 champion.

From there, we’ll be off to the races!
