2008-2009 BCS CHAMPIONSHIP ODDS
PREDICTIONS - ANALYSIS - STRATEGY
Just as you can make a futures wager on who will win the Super Bowl, you can also make a futures wager on who will win the 2008-2009 BCS Championship and become College Footballs National Title winner. (We'll post the complete odds below this article.) There's very little value in playing any of the favorites with this type of wager. Teams like USC and Ohio State simply aren't worth wagering on. The payoff is too small to justify it. Heck, USC is 7/2.
But there are some very interesting choices starting at 20-1 odds
all the way
How about Florida State at 60-1 Odds? Bobby Bowden has this team ready to strike once again. The new coaching staff has a year under it's belt and has the talent to compete right now for a BCS Championship. Last year, Bowden managed to win 7 games despite tons of adversity, including injuries, suspensions and a new staff. While we're in the state of Florida, why not mention the South Florida Bulls? This team is no joke as you'll see when we post our Big East Preview. 75-1 would be a nice payoff!
A couple more teams that you can get at least 75-1 to win the BCS Title on are Alabama and Michigan. Folks, Michigan is always a threat. You almost have to make a play on Michigan on principle alone. 75-1? Michigan is loaded with talent year after year. They have a schedule that is very cooperative. There's not one game on their schedule that they can't win. Even their season finale against Ohio State is winnable. Off all the teams at 20-1 or better, Michigan, at 75-1, stands out most.

There's even a couple of 100-1 shots that, well, probably shouldn't be that high. How about the "Old Ball Coach" Mr Spurrier and his South Carolina Gamecocks? South Carolina returns 10 on defense and 7 on offense to a team that started 6-1, knocked off Georgia and was in every game they played last year. True, they play in the toughest conference in College Football, the SEC, which is a big problem, but heck, 100-1 odds is worth a peanut.
The beauty of playing decent teams at long odds to win the BCS College football Championship is, your team doesn't have to win it for you to make money. If you play a team like Michigan At 75-1 Odds and Michigan rolls thru the early part of their schedule undefeated, yet you don't think they have the talent to win the BCS, there are all kinds of hedging opportunities available which would enable you to lock in a profit.
One strategy is to go game by game thru the schedules of the teams you are considering. See if you can pick some teams at long odds that figure to be undefeated after 6 or 7 games. There's plenty of them as many teams play cupcake schedules early on. Look at some of the weaker conferences.
