Six weeks before the college football season kicks off in full, Alabama is the consensus favorite to win the national championship. But the Crimson Tide are not the most popular bet in Las Vegas.
More bets have been placed on the Michigan Wolverines to win the national title than any other team at multiple Las Vegas sportsbooks. The Wolverines' championship odds have moved from 15-1 to 7-1, making them the second favorites behind Alabama at the Westgate SuperBook.
What a joke. Anybody betting on the Wolverines is throwing their money away. Sure, they have one of the most ridiculously weak OOC schedules in all of College Football this year, but they lost every big game they were in last season and took double overtime to beat Indiana. They will have a new QB at the helm, so there's uncertainty there. They have to play Mich. St., Iowa, and OSU on the road. There is a ZERO percent chance that they run that gauntlet. Then if they do somehow win the Big 10, they will have to play a real SEC team, and not a free-falling QB-less Florida in the CFP to win it all. Heaven help them if they get matched up with Clemson (who is my pick to win it all this year).
People. Please save your money, or better yet donate it to a charity of your choice. It will be better spent there than betting on the Wolverines to win it all.
