You already know who’s No. 1, but the other numbers are interesting.

NCAA Football: SEC Football Media Day Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Hey, you look like the kind of person who’d like to bet on whether UCLA will make the College Football Playoff in Year 1 of Chip Kelly’s return, despite a total overhaul and brutal schedule. You’re in luck!

Via Bovada, below are fresh odds for about half of FBS. No, you can’t bet on Kansas missing the Playoff. In fact, for a bunch of these teams, you can only place a wager on them making the Playoff, but for the top 25 or so, you can also lay money on teams missing the Playoff. Betting on Florida, Missouri, and Nebraska missing 2018’s tournament seems like an extremely safe investment, but don’t quote me on that.

Here are some numbers and words. Teams are ranked by Playoff-ability, according to Bovada.
