How the new NCAAF Top 25 matches up with BCS odds

Jason Logan
The 2013 NCAA Football Top 25 Coaches Poll debuted this afternoon, and to no surprise the defending BCS champion Alabama Crimson Tide top the list, followed by Ohio State, Oregon, Stanford and Georgia.

The Top 25 didn’t stray too far from what oddsmakers project as the favorites to win the national title. The top three schools – Alabama, Ohio State and Oregon – are 1-2-3 on the BCS odds board. Bettors may be getting great value with programs like No. 4 Stanford (+2,000), No. 19 Boise State (+15,000) or even No. 22 Northwestern, which offered the longest BCS odds of the Top 25 at +20,000.

Here are the brand new Top 25 rankings and each teams odds to win the 2013-14 BCS Championship.

No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide (+300)
No. 2 Ohio State Buckeyes (+650)
No. 3 Oregon Ducks (+750)
No. 4 Stanford Cardinal (+2,000)

Your wrong YAZ. Texas A&M is. All the off the field issues with Johnny football I think is going to be a major distraction to the team.

The Buckeyes might be the most overrated team in the Top 25 this season.
