Positive Movers and Shakers
One of the most significant moves on the college football odds board is Alabama’s ascent to the top of the shortlist of favorites as evidenced at online sportsbooks. Alabama emerges as the new-fangled favorite to win it all at +250, usurping steadfast favorites over the last four weeks in Ohio State.

Other movers that shortened on the college football odds board are Notre Dame, who are now fourth overall favorites at +800 behind Alabama, Ohio State and Clemson. The move continues their positive trend over the last few weeks, shortening from +2800 in week 10 to +1200 in week 11 and now +800.

After Notre Dame, Mississippi nudge at their heels at +1000, followed by Oklahoma State at +1200, who had their football odds chopped in half since week 11. As well, Iowa enjoyed a positive move across sports betting platforms (See Table 2), albeit at +2000 they are still a long shot football pick.

Negative Movers and Shakers
 After riding roughshod over the field much of the season, Ohio State lost its second favorite position and were overtaken by Alabama. However, in the broad spectrum their move is incomparable to the sudden plummeting stock of Baylor, down to a whopping +5000 rendering them effectively the quintessential long shots of the remaining field.

Similarly, Stanford and Michigan have experienced negative moves in the last few weeks. The former jumped up from +1400 in week 11 to +5000 ahead of week 12 while the latter is up to a staggering +8000. It’s worth noting that LSU, TCU and Utah are off the board at bet365. That’s not the case with other sportsbooks however some of the football odds verge on the absurd which is a clear indication of the low probability of their chances.
