Early NCAAF Betting Odds for 2019 Championship Contenders.

Early Betting Contenders for the 2019 National Championship

Written by on January 9, 2018

The 2018 college football championship may have just concluded with Alabama’s improbable 26-23 overtime comeback win, but if you’re an NCAAF betting aficionado, then you should know that you can already place a wager on the team you like to win it all next season. That’s right collegiate gridiron gamblers, thanks to the recent release of 2019 College Football Championship odds, you can already place a long-term wager on the team or teams you like to win it all next season.Better yet, thanks to the expert betting advice that you’re about to get on some of the top championship contenders, you’re going to have a great idea of just which teams could likely pull off the upset over their higher favored counterparts.I’ve identified eight title contenders whose odds are lying between 30/1 and 40/1 that could all pull off the championship over the nation’s top dozen favorites and I’m going to highlight one or two reasons why each team could potentially end up as the 2019 national champion. Now, let’s get started.

Early Betting Contenders for the 2019 National Championship

Washington

  • 2019 National Championship Odds: 30/1
With quarterback Jake Browning coming back and running back Myles Gaskin possibly returning, I see no reason why the Huskies won’t challenge for the Pac-12 title and their second berth in the four-team CFP under widely respected head coach Chris Petersen. UW will also add a new offensive coordinator in Bush Hamdan, currently the Atlanta Falcons quarterbacks coach who played for Petersen at Boise State.

LSU

  • 2019 National Championship Odds: 30/1
The Tigers will contend if only because they have a wealth of talent each and every year. However, for them to get past Alabama, Georgia and probably Auburn, Ed Oregon will have to identify whether Myles Brennan or Lowell Narcisse will be his new starting quarterback and hope the one he chooses plays more like an experienced upperclassman than a first-time starter.

USC

  • 2019 National Championship Odds: 40/1
With Sam Darnold bolting and the Trojans breaking in a new starting quarterback, I just wouldn’t go around expect USC to contend for anything outside of maybe, a Pac-12 title, if that!

Virginia Tech

  • 2019 National Championship Odds: 40/1
I love the value that the Hokies are offering heading into 2018 with a really good head coach in Justin Fuente and a gifted quarterback in Josh Jackson that is set to make the leap to stardom next season.

Florida State

  • 2019 National Championship Odds: 40/1
The Seminoles will have a new head coach in Willie Taggart, but they’ll also have gifted quarterback Deondre Francois back. Still, expect more of a rebuild under Taggart as opposed to a team shooting for a national championship.Florida State looks like a solid contender at the NCAAF Betting Odds for the 2019 Championship.

Notre Dame

  • 2019 National Championship Odds: 40/1
Brian Kelly will have to decide if Brandon Wimbush or Ian Kelly is the answer at quarterback, but it’s a pleasant problem for the Irish team that looks like they will contend for a playoff berth next season.

West Virginia

  • 2019 National Championship Odds: 40/1
With star quarterback Will Grier and elite wide receiver David Stills both returning, I love the value that the Mountaineers are offering as a 40/1 pick that looks like they could beat almost anyone with Grier on the field.

Stanford

  • 2019 National Championship Odds: 40/1
If superstar running back Bryce Love returns – and the Cardinals settle on a real difference-maker at quarterback – then Stanford will be much closer to contending for a playoff berth, If Love doesn’t and Stanford head coach David Shaw can’t find a ‘winning quarterback’ you should probably just consider 2018 a rebuilding season.
