Sportsbook Review has covered the college football odds movement across the futures market ahead of NCAAF Week 13.

At the close of week 12 of college football, a changing of the guard has occurred at the top of the market across all online sportsbooks.

The Ohio State Buckeyes, earlier in the year heralded as the eventual champion by many and favorite to win it all, have been dumped out of contention behind a 17-14 loss to the Michigan State Spartans.

Below are the current college football championship winner's odds (See Table 1). The betting lines are powered by online sportsbook Bet365 (SBR rating A+), and show the movement from college football weeks 8 through 13 [to date].

Positive Movers and Shakers
Last week, Alabama began to make a move on the college football odds board, ascending to the top of the shortlist of favorites at most sportsbooks. That new-found position was cemented at the close of week 12 when Ohio State succumbed to a defeat to Michigan State. Now, Alabama have acquired a significant edge over the rest of the field with +160 odds.

Clemson also made some advances at the close of week 12, shortening from +350 to +300 across the market. That makes them the second overall favorites. A good distance away are Notre Dame, matched at +800 odds, in third place. Their price tag remains the same over the last two weeks.

Other positive movers that shortened on the college football odds board are Michigan State, Michigan and Iowa. Baylor also shorted from +5000 to +3300, after they climb back into the playoff mix with a win over unbeaten Oklahoma State in week 12.

Negative Movers and Shakers
As a result of their upset loss, Ohio State are down to +3300 odds and, in all likelihood, their chances to win the national championship are all but over, as these odds reflect.

Florida moved from +2500 to +3300 despite riding a four-game winning streak into week 13. Oklahoma State’s football odds practically quadrupled to +5000 on the heels of a post-season costing loss to Baylor.
