Ohio State lead the NCAA football futures board as the +250 favorites to win outright as we enter the second half of the season. They are undefeated 7-0, which includes a 3-0 Big Ten Conference record. 

Nipping at their heels in the Big Ten is Michigan State with a 7-0 record and a 3-0 Conference record, yet they are matched as the fifth overall faves at +1000 football odds. Michigan State collide with Ohio State in a key Big Ten battle, which could prove deciding for a spot in the top four.

Baylor are the second overall faves (jointly with Alabama on the NCAAF odds board), with a 6-0 overall record that includes a 3-0 Conference record. It’s interesting to note that right now it’s TCU that leads Big 12 with a 7-0 overall record and a 4-0 Conference record, but they are trading at whopping +1800 football odds, which puts them out of the top five picks. November 27th Baylor and TCU collide, which will be a key game for the selection committee towards bowl season.

Alabama are 6-1 overall and 3-1 in the SEC Conference, trailing leaders LSU (6-0 overall and 4-0 SEC Conference), yet they have the edge on the NCAA football odds board trading at +600 to LSU’s +800 college football odds. The pivotal clash between these two outfits is fast approaching, a Nov 7 date that is sure to have deciding consequences. 

Utah are top of the Pac-12 South table with a 6-0 overall record and a 3-0 Conference record, while Stanford are top of the Pac-12 North table with a 5-1 overall record and a 4-0 Conference record.
