The defending champion Clemson Tigers are not in the top 10. Given their numerous losses, highlighted by QB Deshaun Watson, that's understandable. There are two clear-cut favorites: Alabama and Ohio State. USC and Florida State are in the second grouping of favorites.
There's then a bit of a drop-off after that, with Michigan, Oklahoma and a group of four. The Big Ten dominated the odds, with four teams in the top 10.
