College Football Championship betting odds: Alabama falls short of No. 1

Alabama's days as a college football powerhouse could be numbered

The team, which has played in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game for the past four years and won two national titles, is seeing some stiff competition to remain at the top.

In January, the Clemson Tigers took on Alabama Crimson Tide in the championship and pulled off a beatdown for the ages, claiming the title with a convincing 44-16 win. Entering the 2019 season, which begins on Saturday, expert polls and sportsbooks agree: Clemson is now the team to beat. 

Of course, it's still too early to tell, and anything could happen throughout the course of the season and subsequent bowl games. Georgia could get another shot at the title after an embarrassing loss to the Crimson Tide in 2018. Oklahoma, now boasting former Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts under center, is also in the running.

Ahead of this weekend's kickoff, take a look below at the seven teams with the best odds to win the college football championship this season, courtesy of sportsbook.ag
