As the season has worn on, Vegas has grown increasingly bullish on both the Tide and RB Derrick Henry.
Here are the latest odds from Bovada (blue indicates more favorable odds, red indicates less favorable odds from the prior week.)
Odds on 11/16/15 Current Odds (11/24/15)
Michigan State 12/1
Ohio State 16/1 16/1
Notre Dame 9/1
Oklahoma State 33/1
Notably, the Big Twelve is very much in the same position as the SEC: It's the one-loss conference champion or no one. The Sooners also moved up in a big way, jumping from roughly 3 1/2:1 odds to 2 1/2:1. Bovada did not move the line on the Buckeyes, which sit at 16:1, presumably under the very real possibility that chaos could reign on Championship Saturday. Clemson also tumbled, dropping from 4/1 to 3/1.
Individually, Vegas sees Henry as the prohibitive favorite, despite some movement from McCaffrey and Baker Mayfield. A good game from Derrick on Saturday should lock this one up.
