College football odds: Four early CFP title futures bets to make now

Georgia is still celebrating its championship, but with the 2022-23 college football season coming to an end, it’s never too early to predict who will win the title next year.

There are 130 college football teams, but if we’re realistic, only a select few have a legitimate shot at winning the national championship year after year. Here are the four teams, in no particular order, that I like to have the best chance of winning the CFP next season, along with their chances of lifting the trophy in January 2024 (odds via FOX Bet).

USC: +1200 at FOX Bet (bet $10 to win $130 in total)

Remember last year when the Trojans were 80-1, and we jumped on them before they added Caleb Williams and Jordan Addison? USC was the best ticket to have… for 10 months. They came close to making the college football playoffs, but lost to Utah in the Pac-12 title game. With Williams back and the Trojans attacking the transfer gate, USC will be a legitimate contender for the title. Make no mistake, however, the lack of defense remains a major problem.

An October date at Notre Dame will be a challenge, but the only other tough game on the road will be at Oregon.

our Lady: +2500 at FOX Bet (bet $10 to win $260 in total)

The Irish made the biggest quarterback move in the transfer gate, securing soon-to-be 24-year-old Sam Hartman, who set a host of school records at Wake Forest while starting 45 games.

The biggest hurdle here is their schedule, which includes three games against the top 15 teams. Two of those matchups are at home — Ohio State and USC — and then they go to Clemson for the third.

Georgia: +300 on FOX Bet (bet $10 to win $40 in total)

No team has won three straight titles since Minnesota in the 1930s, but good luck finding a team with more talent than Georgia. The biggest question is at quarterback, but the Bulldogs are established pretty much everywhere else. They have the best tight end in America (Brock Bowers), arguably the best returning pass thrower (Mykel Williams) and another recruiting class studded with five-star talent.

Michigan: +800 at FOX Bet (bet $10 to win $90 in total)

This one is accompanied by a huge asterisk. i can’t bet to Michigan futures without knowing the status of Jim Harbaugh. If he leaves for the NFL, I can’t put him here. If he stays… well, that offense should get the Big Ten rolling, with QB JJ McCarthy back, along with running backs Blake Corum and Donovan Edwards. The offensive line will have three new starters via the transfer portal. The defense will have seven months to watch the tape of TCU embarrassment and then take out its frustration on opponents.
