Georgia opens as 2024-25 title favorite ahead of ‘Bama


Georgia was only a spectator as Michigan beat Washington on Monday night to win the 2023 national title, but the Bulldogs are already favored to be back atop the college football world next season.

The Bulldogs opened as +350 favorites at FanDuel and +450 at DraftKings to win the 2024 College Football Playoff, which will expand to 12 teams for the first time. The Bulldogs are favored ahead of SEC rival Alabama, with the Crimson Tide opening at +550 and +600, respectively.

The Bulldogs’ quest to win three consecutive titles was thwarted by the Tide in last month’s SEC championship. It was Alabama that went on to reach the CFP, losing 27-20 in overtime to Michigan in the semifinals. Georgia and Alabama have seen their 2024 rosters bolstered by the addition of transfers along with the top two recruiting classes in the country by 247Sports.

Ohio State, which landed one of the most coveted quarterbacks via the transfer portal in Will Howard, opened with the third-shortest odds at +800 at both books.

The Buckeyes are followed by the Texas Longhorns, who opened at +850 at FanDuel and +900 at DraftKings. The Longhorns’ furious rally against Washington in the other semifinal fell short in a 37-31 defeat.

Michigan is +1000 at both books, followed by Oregon at +1200 by FanDuel and +1000 by DraftKings.

Florida State, which controversially was left out of the CFP despite an undefeated season as the ACC champion, opened with the ninth-shortest odds at +1800 at both books.

Washington suffered a 34-13 defeat on Monday night, and the Huskies are +5000 longshots to win next season’s title as they prepare to join Michigan in the Big Ten.
