Who has better shot at making CFB Playoffs. Or name another team not Clemson, Ohio St or Alabama. Typically do a few futures each year. Last year Michigan & Georgia were my takes that did not pan out.
IMO Florida has a better shot than Oregon. If I am looking for great value for a team to make the CFB it would have to be Penn State. They get OSU at home this year and this is always a close game. If they can beat OSU they will make the big 10 conference game as I do not see them losing to any other big 10 team.
Notre Dame is +2500 for the natty. Since you don't want Clemson or tOSU and they play Clemson at home late in the season this could be a nice pick. Wisconsin @ Lambeau Field, @ USC and the already mentioned Clemson games are the biggest potential hiccups on their schedule. They also don't have to play a conference championship game which could work against them also. Will have to go undefeated to make it to the playoffs.
Same for Florida, would rather take them over ND as well. Florida doesn’t have the worst schedule. They get LSU at home and will have to beat Georgia. If they somehow win those games, they are in great shape. Its all about looking into schedules and seeing if a team can potentially go undefeated or 1 loss.
With Ducks at 5-1 and Gators at 3.5-1 for the playoff the odds feel maybe a little light for both ..
If you take Oregon 5-1 now and they beat OSU you're still kinda sweating out the season that they don't mess it up somewhere down the line ... You're really almost in the same boat if they lose to OSU and maybe you get idk... 10-1 odds?..
Recall last year when the ducks lost to auburn in week 1 all the pundits not only wrote off Oregon with no chance to make the playoff but also decreed that no PAC 12 team had a shot now that Oregon lost in week 1.... So oregon played one game and all bets for a pac-12 team to make the playoff lost huh?.... lol...
Not only would Oregon have been in the playoffs last year if they didn't get upset by ASU but I think very good odds that Utah gets in if they beat the Ducks in the champ game..... Felt very much like Oklahoma got in by default after going to OT vs a baylor team playing their #2 and #3 QB's when they were something like 14 point favs or so ...
Anyway... might be worth waiting... good luck!
