Alabama, Florida State still strong national title favorites

New, comments

Stanford is off the board, while Auburn sees its stock improve after a miraculous win over Georgia.

After an absolutely absurd week of college football, it appears the national title picture is getting even clearer, as Alabama and Florida State's odds continue to improve with each week that they survive undefeated, via Bovada.

Odds to win the 2013-2014 BCS National Championship

Team                        Week 12                       Current

Alabama                        5/4                            1/1

Florida State                  7/4                            8/5

Baylor                              4/1                            7/1

Ohio State                     17/2                           10/1

Oregon                           20/1                           20/1

Auburn                            66/1                           33/1

Missouri                       Off the Board                75/1

Stanford                        25/1                           Off the Board

Odds to win the 2013-2014 Heisman Trophy

Player                                                       Week 12           Current

Jameis Winston (QB Florida State)         1/5                    4/11

Johnny Manziel (QB Texas A&M)              4/1                    5/2

A.J. McCarron (QB Alabama)                    7/1                    13/2

Bryce Petty (QB Baylor)                        20/1                  10/1

Even after a blowout of Texas Tech, Baylor's odds get worse, while Ohio State's stock falls after a 25-point win over Illinois. Stanford falls off the board after its upset loss to USC, while SEC teams Auburn and Missouri stay lurking as the two teams hoping to knock off Alabama.

In the Heisman race, Jameis Winston continues to be the strong favorite, with Johnny Manziel behind him. Bryce Petty improves his stock after a five-touchdown performance against Texas Tech, and the race could be closer than first expected.
