Looking at the drastic movement in the Week 12 College Football Playoff odds, it's hard to believe that Week 11 passed without claiming a single Top-10 upset.


Nonetheless, programs like No. 1 Alabama, No. 3 Notre Dame, No. 6 Oklahoma and No. 10 Ohio State all saw noticeable drops in their Week 12 odds to win the CFP, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

The odds movement is coming at just the right time as we head into mid-November, especially with both the favorites from the Big 12 – in West Virginia and Oklahoma – tied at +5000 to take home the CFP title.


Next week's showdown between the Mountaineers and Sooners in Morgantown will have both the Big 12 Conference title berth and ​Heisman Trophy dreams on the line.

With Heisman hopefuls, WVU quarterback Will Grier and Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray, tied for the second-best odds to win the award, the outcome of that Week 13 game will surely change the fate of those players and their programs.

As for some of the teams on the outside looking in, Notre Dame's odds to win it all saw a slight dip with a tough matchup against No. 13 Syracuse on a neutral field at Yankee Stadium on the schedule this weekend. On the other hand, No. 5 Georgia's 27-10 win over No. 24 Auburn gave the Bulldogs a slight bump in the latest odds.

However, Georgia's hopes will likely boil down to the SEC Championship matchup with No. 1 Alabama as a play-in game for the CFP. That means if you believe in UGA, now is the best time to take them to win it with their value likely at an all-time high this week.
