Oklahoma and LSU Odds to Win National Championship Climb in Wake of Georgia Plummet From Upset Loss
By David Hayes
Week 7 of the 2019 college football season proved a tough Saturday to be a Georgia fan, as the Bulldogs' 20-17 (2OT) home loss to South Carolina brought us our first top-5 upset of the season.
After the Gamecocks shocked the 20.5-point-favored Bulldogs, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, No. 10 Georgia has seen a sharp fall in both the Week 8 AP Top-25 Poll and the latest odds to win the College Football Playoff.

Since the Bulldogs opened with +800 odds to win the 2020 CFP back in January, Georgia boasted the nation's third-best shot to win it all through early October.
However, prior to Saturday's damaging loss to South Carolina, the Bulldogs plummeted by two fold, going from +800 to +1600 heading into Week 8 with one loss. In the wake of this fall, Georgia dropped to the sixth-best odds to win it all, now also sitting behind No. 2 LSU (+1000) and No. 5 Oklahoma (+1100).
Coincidentally, Ohio State (+700) actually surpassed Georgia for the third-best odds to win the national title (for the first time this season) just days ahead of Saturday's upset stumble in Athens.
No. 3 Clemson (+180) has retained its lead atop the national championship odds since the Tigers began the regular season with +175 odds, while No. 1 Alabama (+230) has seen gradual improvements, including a bump from +250 odds heading into Week 7.
