College Football Champ? Vegas says . . .


Underrated? Overrated? Sports facts backed by math!

Las Vegas, NV (8/27/08) - With the college football season soon kicking-off, RJ Bell of has released compelling National Championship numbers in his True Vegas Odds column.

The top 10 teams with the best chance to win is all: #1) USC Trojans: 12.5%; #2) Ohio State Buckeyes: 11.5%; #3) Georgia Bulldogs: 9.5%; #4) Florida Gators: 9%; #5) Oklahoma Sooners: 8%; #6) Missouri Tigers: 3.5%; #7) West Virginia Mountaineers: 3.5%; #8) LSU Tigers: 2.5%; #9) Texas Longhorns: 2.5%; #10) Clemson Tigers: 2.5%

Coin-flip debate of the week: Who has a better chance to win it all: this group of five teams (USC, Ohio St., Georgia, Florida, Oklahoma) or every other team in the nation combined? Vegas says the odds are exactly even! Would you take the big 5 or all the rest?

Overrated Team: Kansas, ranked #13 in the USA Today poll, but only given the 25th best chance to win it all (less than 1% chance).

Underrated Team: Florida St, unranked in the USA Today poll, yet given the 17th best chance to win it all by Vegas.

Should Cinderella Buy a Dress? For those hoping against hope for your underdog team to win it all, its interesting to note that Vegas says only 19 teams have better than a 100-1 shot to be National Champions.
