Naturally, fans will want to lean towards Alabama and Clemson. After all, those two have won the last 4 national championships and they’re already heavy college football betting favorites to meet in next year’s title match. With the National Signing Day already in our rear view, the grueling offseason lies ahead. So if we were to talk Bama and Clemson off of the table, which would be your best remaining options? Let’s take a sportsbook look.
Best 2020 National Championship Betting Options
No. 1 Georgia
Georgia lands the top spot in this last all thanks Kirby Smart. He’s living up to his name by raking in 3 straight top-3 recruitment classes loaded with eye-catching brawn. On top of that, Georgia has given Alabama a run for their money in their last 2 matchups. Ultimately this is probably leading factor for their placement here since that is a must on your way to becoming national champions. It will be up to Jake Fromm to end the championship drought that’s been looming over the program since the 80s.
No. 2 Ohio State
All in all Ryan Day is one lucky dude, inheriting all the makings of a Big Ten championship team thanks to Urban Meyer. Some eyes are on Justin Fields, who will be another eligible and talented quarterback on their roster. Since this team has already won a college football playoff championship, it’s an obvious pick to come in at second.
No. 3 Texas
Although they haven’t claimed a title since the 2005 college football betting season, the Longhorns are vying to break out unto the scene next season. They’re coming off their first 10-win season in, well 10 years. In the end, that success can be attributed to Tom Herman, who also led them to a Sugar Bowl triumph over Georgia. That’s all fine and dandy, but does it justify them being this high on this list? Well it’s not just last year’s success. It’s that coupled with the fact that Texas has secured back to back top-3 recruiting classes. Granted they might have an edge in securing that in-state talent. But at the end of the day they’re still bringing in a ton of talent.
No. 4 Oklahoma
Most mobile betting fans will disagree with this placement, and there’s no question Sooners fans will demand their favorite program be higher than this. After all, they’ve made three straight playoff appearances and are a perennial favorite to win the national title. On top of that, Lincoln Riley has now coached consecutive Heisman winners. No doubt Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray are exceptional talents, but the Sooners are still dominant as a whole. Yet, they still have things to prove in the postseason. Hopefully they’ll do so this upcoming season.
