2019 CFB National Championship Futures Review
With the final College Football Playoff rankings set to be released on December 2nd, here’s a review of the top 5 teams in contention for the top spot, as well as a couple additional teams that could sneak into the conversation.
2019 College Football Playoffs Futures: Alabama Crimson Tide -250
The juggernaut Nick Saban has built at Alabama continues to chug along with no end in sight. The Tide field the best defense in the college ranks by a wide margin, and a Heisman candidate at quarterback leading the offense. Not to mention, that quarterback has a proven track record of taking a game over in the College Football Playoff title game.
There’s not enough value in backing the Tide, as much as they do seem like a sure thing this year, so it’s better to look for value on some of their top competitors.
2019 College Football Playoffs Futures: Clemson Tigers +350
After a not overly convincing victory over rival South Carolina to close out their regular schedule, Clemson coach Dabo Swinney threatened to pick up his ball and go home after some harsh criticism from supporters over the narrow margin of victory.
There’s really nowhere else for him to go at this point. He’s staring at the peak of the mountain in his current position at Clemson. The only place that could present a step up is Alabama, and that job likely isn’t opening up any time soon.
For bettors, this Clemson squad is the best bet for those that don’t trust Alabama. Like Alabama, they head into their conference championship game with an undefeated record, and will like find themselves in the final four even with a loss in that game.
2019 College Football Playoffs Futures: Notre Dame Fighting Irish +1000
Unlike the other programs on this list, the Irish don’t have a conference title game to worry about. Their spot in the final four is solidified. Up to this point, they’ve knocked off every team in their path, so it’s tough to make too strong a case against them.
Their schedule has been very tough to this point, but the final four will present the two toughest matchups they’ve faced this season.
2019 College Football Playoffs Futures: Oklahoma Sooners +1800
Kyler Murray is at worst a top two quarterback in football this season, helping give the Sooners one of the best offenses in all of college football.
With the current state of the Big 12, Oklahoma can’t really be trusted to win outside of the conference playing zero defense, though.
