We are halfway through the 2011 NCAA football betting season, and here at Cappers Info, we are taking a look at some of the best bets that are out there for the taking on the 2011 BCS National Championship Odds.
2011 BCS National Championship Prediction #1: Alabama Crimson Tide (+175 at Wager Web Sportsbook): Simply put, we just think that the Crimson Tide have the better team right now between it and the LSU Tigers. There isn’t a team in the SEC East that scares us, nor does a road trip to the Auburn Tigers at the end of the year. As long as Alabama can hold up its end of the bargain in Tuscaloosa against LSU in a few weeks, there is no reason that it won’t end up in the National Championship Game. And, if that’s the case, there’s no stopping this team.
2011 BCS National Championship Prediction #2: Oklahoma State Cowboys (+1000 at Wager Web Sportsbook): QB Brandon Weeden might be a dark horse of a Heisman Trophy candidate this year, and the Cowboys really might not have an excuse but to keep winning. Oklahoma State has to love this first set of BCS rankings, as it is comfortably ranked No. 4 in the country from that standpoint. That being said, if the Pokes can run the table, they too can be in the National Championship Game. Of course, there are still some tough games to play at this point, most notably Bedlam at the end of the season against Oklahoma. Of course, if the Cowboys can take care of Mizzou this week, they will already be 3-0 on the road in the Big XII.
2011 BCS National Championship Prediction #3: Virginia Tech Hokies (+10000 at Wager Web Sportsbook): It’s a huge long shot to think that Virginia Tech could be in the National Championship Game, but hear us out here. The Hokies are the third ranked one loss team in the land. We don’t see Kansas State getting through unscathed, and obviously, Clemson wouldn’t end up undefeated either at that point. At that point, we’re talking about 100 to 1 that two of the three of Alabama, LSU, and Oklahoma lose twice, as well as Oklahoma State and Wisconsin losing twice. That’s all that really needs to happen to get the job done, and at 100 to 1, we’re more than willing to take our chances.
