Vegas Odds: After exorcising the Ole Miss ju ju, Alabama solidifies its status as the team to beat.

A wild September has shaken the odds

Las Vegas

Vegas looks to be holding steady on LSU and Florida. Meanwhile, consistent poor play has lengthened the odds for Georgia, Tennessee, Clemson. The ‘Ville, Miami, Houston and Texas A&M saw their odds shorten, as all four got off to a hot start (and, 20/1 on Louisville looks to be some good value.) Curiously, Notre Dame, 0-2 against teams worth a damn, is still at 75/1. Meanwhile, Ole Miss, America’s first half national champion, has dropped to 100/1...and, that actually may not be a bad bet if a bunch of weird things start happening a la 2007.

Finally, despite doing its best to give away a game in Oxford, (and probably because it failed to do so in removing the Hugh Freeze jinx,) Alabama has solidified its stranglehold as the team to beat, moving to 7/2 odds to win it all in January.
