One survived on the road against a fellow SEC opponent. The other one destroyed an SEC team on its home turf Saturday. With Alabama and Oregon undefeated and ranked No. 1 and No. 2, it was only a matter of time before people began talking about a matchup in a national championship game.
Preparing for a potential matchup, the Golden Nugget in Las Vegas has starting taking wagers with the Crimson Tide listed as a 3-point favorite over the Ducks.
Alabama is a heavy favorite Saturday (40 points in some places) against Colorado State. Oregon is off this week and kicks off its conference schedule against Cal on September 28th.
This news comes on the same day another sports book says Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota is now the favorite to win the Heisman. He’s a (slight) favorite over Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel. Here’s how the top five candidates breakdown according to Bovada.
Marcus Mariota, Oregon: 9/2
Johnny Manziel, Texas A&M: 5/1
AJ McCarron, Alabama: 13/2
Teddy Bridgewater, Louisville: 13/2
Jameis Winston, Florida State: 9/1
South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney is listed at 25-1.
