New-look USC Trojans emerge as most popular bet to win College Football Playoff at Las Vegas sportsbook

A pair of perennial powerhouses in Alabama and Ohio State are attracting the bulk of the betting action around the nation, but the story is a little different at one Las Vegas sportsbook, where more money has bet on USC to win the College Football Playoff than any other team.

"America's team," Ed Salmons, veteran oddsmaker for the SuperBook at Westgate Las Vegas, said of the new-look Trojans. "They're our biggest loser in the futures book."

USC's national title odds have improved from 40-1 to 25-1 at the SuperBook, giving the Trojans the sixth- best championship odds.
