Alabama 4/1 -- They have made the playoffs every year & now add the best recruiting class with 21 top 300 players, just flat out have to play them & hedge later.
FSU 7/1 -- No Kaaya, No Trubisky, No Watson. The ACC is back to Tallahassee along with a loaded roster. I believe week 1 will be the title preview with them vs Bama.
Oklahoma 9/1 -- I never bet on Big Game Bob, dude is the biggest choker I've ever seen & still have a job, but if they beat a young OSU team week 2 they will be set up to get into the playoffs. Also interesting to see how Big12 title game will affect.
Notre Dame 65/1 -- 17 returning starters. New OC, DC, LB, ST, coaches but most important New strength coaches from Miss St and IMG Academy. If you follow CFB & don't know who Brandon Wimbush is you better watch some film or you'll hear about him very soon. Best QB they have had since Brady Quinn. Brian Kelly’s record with a returning starter at QB: 32-22 (59.7%) Brian Kelly's record with a first-year starter at QB (Wimbush): 27-9 (75.0%). Toughest games are at home vs UGA & USC but off a bye. Long-shot prediction here.
