2013 BCS Championship Odds

I will go ahead and break out the SEC teams since that would seem to be the bet over the last seven years.

SEC
Alabama +300    
Arkansas +12500    
Auburn +20000 
Florida +1500   
Georgia +3000 
LSU +1000 
Mississippi State +6000
Missouri +20000  
South Carolina +3000
Tennessee +10000
Texas A&M +1400 

The odds for LSU will obviously have to change after they lost nearly their entire starting defense early to the NFL Draft.

I think UGA at +3000 has some real play.  Yes, the Bulldogs lost a lot of talent on defense but have recruited well enough to fill it reasonably well and will have the best QB in the league back for a fifth year.

Miss State at +6000 is strictly a conference play.  If the Bulldogs are in any other league they are nowhere near this number. 

Texas AM will be a hot team, but I think the loss of their star left tackle and everyone getting up for Johnny Manziel will prevent them from winning it all. 

From the non-SEC teams, I like Oregon at +800 the most.  Yes, the loss of Chip Kelly will hurt but a lot of talent returns to a team who was undefeated in regulation.   Clemson at +1500 is also intriguing with Tahj Boyd deciding to return.  The opener against Georgia will give us a big indication if Clemson is for real.
