2017 CFP Championship Futures

2017 CFP National Championship Futures

By Loot, NCAA Football Handicapper,

The 2016-17 college football season looks to be a hotly-contested race for the CFP National Championship. We see almost a dozen teams that are less than 20/1. And there are even more teams that appear to have a decent spot to get to the CFP and win a few games in order to become national champions. This can be a good bet to make for a multitude of reasons.

A futures bet on which team will win the CFP National Championship can serve several different purposes. It allows you to capitalize on any original insight or analysis you may have developed from last season or during the offseason. For those who were really paying attention, you can get a read on which teams from last year are bound to have a big upsurge this season. Or you picked up different tidbits of info over the course of the offseason that you can use to project that a team will be a contender. In other words, not many people know the score now, but they will shortly after the season begins. The teams that are legit contenders will soon be found out and everyone will know about it. By then, the value of that wager will be gone.

We'd like to offer a few recommendations when making college football CFP championship futures. There are favorites and those will be the more-compelling picks. It's hard to make a group of picks and not include teams like Alabama, Ohio State, Clemson, or others. But we also want to stand to win a nice amount and should include a few underdogs in the mix. In other words, we recommend more than one selection, with a ton of different things that could come up and ruin our bet.

Make sure you place this bet or any futures bet for that matter with a sportsbook with a high level of integrity and trustworthiness. Believe it or not, there are some books who are currently operating that will no longer even be in business by the end of the college football season. And no one wants to make a bet like this and actually win, only to find out your book has folded up their tent and gone home. Use any of the books supported here at and you won't have to sweat getting paid. Not even a little bit.


Let's take a look at some of our better picks on who will win the CFP National Championship, followed by a complete list of odds for all the teams:

Ohio State +700: With a 50-4 record under Urban Meyer, the Buckeyes stand out as a deserving favorite. They will need to go unbeaten or hope the conference escalates its overall game perhaps, but they should be right on the cusp at the very least, despite losing some key guys.

Alabama +700: Last season's CFP National Championship team is the co-favorite to repeat this season. And they are loaded, with a lot of key guys on both sides of the ball returning, with blue-ribbon youngsters waiting in the wings. It's hard to imagine Alabama not being at least in the mix, despite a lot of tough hurdles to overcome this season.

Clemson +750: Came within 5 points of a perfect season and a CFP National Championship last season. They return a lot of the pieces to the puzzle, including quarterback and Heisman Trophy frontrunner Deshaun Watson. And after throwing for 4000 yards and running for 1000, he should help keep Clemson at or near the top this season.

Oklahoma +1400: Last season, they made it to the College Football Playoff, losing to Clemson by 20 in a letdown. But quarterback Baker Mayfield and running back Samaje Perine, among others, will be back and they should be a handful in the Big 12 and potentially beyond.

Florida State +1600: With a 49-6 record over the past 4 seasons under Jimbo Fisher, the Seminoles have reclaimed their place atop the college football world and are again consistent winners and threats for the top prize. With Dalvin Cook a Heisman threat, look for FSU to win a bunch of games this season.

Stanford +1600: Despite a 12-2 record and missing the College Football Playoff last year, Stanford was one of the top teams in the country in 2015-16, smashing Iowa in the Rose Bowl and are a huge threat out of the west this season. They will again be forced to march through a deep conference mostly intact, but they have a lot of weapons, like another Heisman frontrunner in Christian McCaffrey.

Oklahoma State +5000: They didn't end the season very well and there are some major issues with this team, hence their 50-1 standing. At the same time, they put up gobs of points and even though they face a tougher schedule this season, they're not an altogether bad long-shot selection.

Washington State +10000: OK, we're probably stretching it a bit here. But there are a few good signs—the step up they took last year and a potential Heisman choice in the electric Luke Falk at QB. There are reasons they are 100-1, but Mike Leach might get Washington St. to surprise some folks this season.
