2017-18 College Football National Championship Odds & Picks

As to be expected, the Alabama Crimson Tide are the favorites to win the College Football National Championship. Alabama is a ridiculously low +310. At those odds, Bama isn’t worth a look. There are too many things that can happen to end any team’s march to a National Championship.

If you are looking for a few other options to bet on to win the 2017-18 College Football National Championship, we have three.

The Sharp Pick To Win: USC Trojans +825

USC’s got a lot going for it this season. QB Sam Darnold returns. Plus, the offensive line has 2 seniors in Zach Banner and Chad Wheeler. The defensive line should be one of the best, if not the best, in the nation.

But, the real reason to love USC is the Trojans’ schedule. Western Michigan, Texas, and Notre Dame are the only teams USC plays outside the Pac. They should destroy all 3 of those teams. Western Michigan is a MAC team. Texas is going through yet another rebuild. Notre Dame is so highly-regarded this season that they’re 80 to 1 to win the National Championship.

When it comes to the Pac-12, USC is by far the best team. Neither an Arizona or an Oregon school should challenge USC. Utah is always tough. But, USC is better. Washington and Stanford are also always tough. Both lost too much to challenge USC.

There’s a great chance the Trojans go undefeated this season.

The Public Pick To Win: Oklahoma Sooners +1300

So, Bob Stoops steps down as head coach and Oklahoma’s odds to win the college football national championship go up to 13 to 1 from 8 to 1? That’s a head scratcher. The problem with many of these veteran coaches is that they don’t change with the times.

New head coach Lincoln Riley is only 33-years-old. He knows how to win on today’s gridiron. Riley’s already proven to be a terrific recruiter. Oklahoma’s landed two fantastic wide receivers for 2018.

I think Riley’s going to have Oklahoma under the radar. Also, like USC in the Pac 12, which team truly challenges the Sooners for the Big 12 Championship?

The Longshot Pick To Win: Virginia Tech Hokies +8500

Justin Fuente is as good of a college football coach as any you’re going to find. In his first season at the helm in Blacksburg, Fuente led the Hokies to a 10-4 record and an ACC Coastal Division title.
The Hokies could be much better than that this season. Virginia Tech’s defense should be one of the best in the country. The offense might take some time to gel since Fuente must replace his starting QB, and many skill position players.

But, if Fuente can do that, and if the offense gels by mid-season, VA Tech could sneak into the CFP.

Post 2017 NFL Draft Super Bowl 52 Odds

Post 2017 NFL Draft Super Bowl 52 Odds

The 2017 NFL regular season may still be months away from getting started, but if you want to know how the recently completed NFL Draft, could affect the Super Bowl 52 odds of several title hopefuls, then you’re in for a treat.

Will the lowly Cleveland Browns take a step forward after nabbing three players in the first round? Will quarterback Mitchell Trubisky prove to be worthy of the No. 2 overall pick? Lat but not least, will the Houston Texans take another step forward after nabbing their quarterback of the future in former Clemson superstar Deshaun Watson?

Let’s find out the answers to these questions and much more.

Post 2017 NFL Draft Super Bowl 52 Odds

  • Arizona Cardinals +3700
  • Atlanta Falcons +1250
  • Baltimore Ravens +4300
  • Buffalo Bills +10000
  • Carolina Panthers +3000
  • Chicago Bears +14500
  • Cincinnati Bengals +6000
  • Cleveland Browns +32500
  • Dallas Cowboys +950
  • Denver Broncos +2000
  • Detroit Lions +6600
  • Green Bay Packers +1150
  • Houston Texans +2275
  • Indianapolis Colts +4000
  • Jacksonville Jaguars +10000
  • Kansas City Chiefs +2500
  • Los Angeles Chargers +7000
  • Los Angeles Rams +15500
  • Miami Dolphins +5000
  • Minnesota Vikings +3300
  • New England Patriots +450
  • New Orleans Saints +6600
  • New York Giants +1500
  • New York Jets +20000
  • Oakland Raiders +1400
  • Philadelphia Eagles +5000
  • Pittsburgh Steelers +1250
  • San Francisco 49ers +32500
  • Seattle Seahawks +1125
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers +4000
  • Tennessee Titans +4000
  • Washington Redskins +6600

Houston Texans +2275

  • Deshaun Watson – QB – Clemson

Maybe it’s me, but I swear the Houston Texans got the ‘steal’ of the draft by getting Cleveland’s 12th overall pick to nab former Clemson signal-caller, Deshaun Watson. The only thing holding the Texans back the last couple of seasons has been some really horrific play at the quarterback position. While veteran Tom Savage is expected to start, I wouldn’t be surprised if Watson saw the field at some point this season. Not only is Watson a star on the field, but more importantly, I believe he’s by far, the best young leader in the entire 2017 NFL Draft. Make no mistake about it, the Texans’ Super Bowl odds could improve at some point in the near future because of their acquisition of the national championship winning Deshaun Watson.

Carolina Panthers +3000

  • Christian McCaffery – RB – Stanford

I’m going on record right now to say that the Carolina Panthers nabbed a player with the eighth overall pick that I believe is going to be a genuine superstar in former Stanford hybrid running back/receiver/returner Christian McCaffery. I’m expecting the son of former NFL wide receiver Ed McCaffery to make an immediate for the Panthers in a variety of roles while giving Cam Newton and the Panthers’ offense the balance they missed so much a year ago. Don’t be surprised the see Carolina’s Super Bowl 52 odds improve, if ever so slightly as we move closer to the tart f the regular season.

Cleveland Browns +32500

  • Myles Garrett – DE – Texas A&M
  • Jabrill Peppers – LB – Michigan
  • David Njoku – TE – Miami

The Browns had a pretty wild draft if you ask me. On the one hand, the Browns did a great job by not messing up the first overall pick and taking Texas A&M star Myles Garrett. I also like Cleveland’s drafting of hybrid linebacker/safety Jabrill Peppers at No. 25 and Miami tight end David Njoku at No. 29. I expect all three players to make a contribution right away, so that’s good news. However, there’s some bad news for the Browns as well. Cleveland failed to draft a quarterback in the first round and could have had Deshaun Watson at No. 12. Instead, Cleveland waited to grab Notre Dame signal-caller DeShone Kizer with the 52nd overall pick and I believe that decision could come back to haunt them, even though I will say that Cody Kessler looked pretty solid last season – when he wasn’t running for his life that is.

Chicago +14500

  • Mitchell Trubisky – QB – North Carolina

I don’t know what’s going on in the Windy City, but the Chicago Bears made one of the most foolish moves in recent NFL Draft memory by moving up one spot to nab former North Carolina quarterback Mitchell Trubisky when they could have gotten him with their original No. 3 pick. Chicago gave up third- and fourth-round picks this year along with a third-rounder next year to get an inexperienced quarterback in Trubisky – all after signing veteran Mike Glennon to a three-year deal in the offseason to replace the departed Jay Cutler. I wouldn’t expect Trubisky to see the field this season – or Chicago’s Super Bowl 52 odds to improve at all.

San Francisco +32500

  • Solomon Thomas – DE – Stanford
  • Reuben Foster – LB – Alabama

The Niners absolutely fleeced the Bears and still managed to get the player they wanted at No. 3 in former Stanford defensive end Solomon Thomas

”Kudos to the Bears,” new Frisco GM John Lynch said. ”I give Ryan Pace and John Fox credit for making a courageous move and we’re thrilled with what we got out of it.”

Ya’ think?

In addition of Thomas, the Niners also nabbed an impact player with the 31st overall pick by selecting linebacker Reuben Foster. The former Alabama star was expected to go in the top five but slid down following some pre-draft nonsense and a diluted drug sample that cost him big, but could aid the Niners’ in their quest to get back to respectability. San Francisco won’t contend in 2017, but their upper Bowl 52 odd could improve just a bit after getting two players that will contribute right away. 

Kansas City +2500

  • Patrick Mahomes II – OQ – Texas Tech

The Chief have been perennial double-digit winners ever since Andy Reid set foot in town, but I think Kansas City blew it big-time by jumping up in the draft to take former Texas Tech signal-caller Patrick Mahomes II over Watson. I know Mahomes II has a huge arm and an even bigger upside, but  I believe Deshaun Watson is hands down, not only the best young leader in this draft but a player that I already a better leader than half of the starting quarterbacks in the league. Kansas City’ Super Bowl 52 odds won’t improve because they drafted Mahomes II but they’ll contend anyway.

Jacksonville +10000

  • Leonard Fournette – RB – LSU

The Jags are a longshot pick to win Super Bowl 52, but drafting the gifted Leonard Fournette, I suspect we could see a small change in their upper Bowl 52 odds. While Fournette ha drawn comparisons to Adrian Peterson, I believe Jacksonville’ best offseason acquisition was that of former head coach Tom Coughlin.

Tennessee +4000

  • Adoree Jackson – CB – USC

You may not know as much about Tennessee Titans 18th overall draft pick Adoree Jackson, but you should. Jackson is arguably the most gifted athlete in the entire draft and a player that will make an immediate impact on the defensive side of the ball for a Titans team that went 9-7 last season and is poised to challenge for a playoff berth in 2017. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Tennessee’s Super Bowl 52 odds move just a bit because of the addition of Jackson.

Steelers +1250

  • T.J. Watt – LB – Wisconsin

Maybe it’s me, but I’m stunned that T.J. Watt lasted until the 30th overall pick, but everyone else’s loss will be Pittsburgh’s gain. Watt isn’t the most athletic linebacker in the world, but he reminds me of a Brian Cushing or Sean Lee type of player that I all over the field and making play you’d never expect him to make. Watt has a nose for the ball and will help the Steelers on the defensive side of the ball right away. Even if the Steelers’ odds to win upper Bowl 52 don’t improve because of his addition, I fully expect to see T.J. Watt on the field and making plays as a rookie for Mike Tomlin.

Super Bowl LI Betting Bonanza

Super Bowl LI between the Atlanta Falcons and New England Patriots kicks off this Sunday, Feb 5th. If you can’t make it to Las Vegas to bet, 5Dimes has you covered.

The Super Bowl spread remains New England minus-3 with a total of 59. If you are looking for other ways to get into the action 5Dimes is offering the hottest props anywhere.

Bet 5Dimes

Most eyes will be on who will win Super Bowl LI MVP. Tom Brady opened as the favorite to win MVP at 10-11. Matt Ryan is second at 8-5. Julio Jones and Julian Edelman are next at 12-1. Super Bowl XLIX hero Malcolm Butler is an 80-1 long shot.

Another popular prop wager at 5Dimes is the player to score the first touchdown of the game. There is a four-way tie at 8-1 with one Falcon and a trio of Patriots: Jones, Edelman, Chris Hogan & LeGarrette Blount. Brady and Ryan are both 20-1. And it’s 500-1 that no TD will be scored in the whole game. A field-goal only Super Bowl sounds as bad as it could get, but it would make Matt Bryant or Stephen Gostkowski in line for MVP honors. Both opened as 80-1 longshots.

Do you feel Brady is in for a big game? Brady’s exact number of touchdown passes is another available wager. Do you think he will get 6+ TDs? You can get it at 20-1.

While all eyes are on Super Bowl LI on Feb 5th, don’t overlook a couple of amazing sporting events that offer a ton of betting value. The Pro-Bowl and Aussie Open tennis finals.

First it’s the red-headed step-child of the NFL. No, not the Cleveland Browns. It’s the Pro Bowl. While the NFL dubs it a celebration of its brightest stars of today and tomorrow, the players and fans are less excited. If you’ve completely lost track of the Pro Bowl, the NFL has decided to go back to the regular AFC vs. NFC format. For the past three years, the league used a format where two captains picked each team.

NFL Final Four Featuring the Pats, Steelers, Packers & Falcons

Welcome the NFL post-season final four.

As in most years, the NFL Conference Championships features four Super Bowl worthy teams that the great Vince Lombardi couldn’t deny. But this year they also include four elite quarterbacks.





Bet 5Dimes

This is the first time in the Super Bowl era that the last four teams each have a quarterback that has thrown for more than 200 TDs. What’s more is that, Matt Ryan of the Falcons, Tom Brady of the Patriots and Aaron Rodgers of the Packers were first, second and fourth in the key statistic of adjusted yards per passing attempt.

Ben Roethlisberger had the least impressive numbers this year. But he and the three other remaining QBs were first, second, sixth and seventh in passing touchdowns, despite Brady missing four games for his deflation suspension and Roethlisberger missing two because of injury. This Sunday is going to be crazy.

The New Year = The Return Of Tiger

The New Year is upon us and we have had a Tiger Woods sighting.

Woods finished in 15th in an 18-player field at the Hero World Challenge in early December, closing with a 4-over 76 in his first competitive tournament in 15 months.

That was enough to send the golf betting world into a dizzy and a flurry of action on his odds to win next year’s Masters. Woods’ odds to win the 2017 Masters were as low as 16-1.

Matsuyama’s (the Hero World Challenge Winner) odds to win the Masters were down to 15-1 earlier this month. He was one of five golfers with better odds than Woods.Jason Day and Jordan Spieth were 8-1 co-favorites to win the Masters, with Rory McIlroy at 9-1.

Tiger was listed at 20-1.The Masters will take place April 6-9 in Augusta, Georgia.
