College football blue bloods lead the way in the initial National Championship odds. National runner-up, Alabama, sits at the top of the list at +200, while defending champ Georgia follows close behind at +275.

After missing the College Football Playoff for the first time in a few years, Ohio State (+450) and Clemson (+1200) round out the top four.

Will we see a new entrant in the CFP this year? Teams like USC and Texas A&M (+2000) and Texas (+4000) are lurking just outside the top of the list.

2022 has already been a wild year for the NCAA. It will only get crazier this fall as the race for the CFP will be close as ever.

The Safe Pick: Alabama | +200 at BetMGM

What is there left to say about Alabama at this point? It’s no surprise Bama leads the pack for National Championship odds.

They have been the model of consistency for the better part of a decade at this point. After a discouraging National Championship loss to his former assistant, Nick Saban seems as hungry as ever to return to their championship ways.

Of course, it helps to have your Heisman Trophy winning-QB back for another season. After a tremendous 2021 season, the sophomore is poised to take an even bigger jump in 2022.

Along with Bryce Young, Bama comes into the 2022 season boasting a top recruiting class in the country (notoriously coming in second place to Texas A&M).

Barring any significant injuries, Alabama is well-positioned to make another National Championship appearance.

The Longshot: Oklahoma | +3500 at BetMGM

It’s been an offseason of change for Oklahoma. Former coach Lincoln Riley bolted for USC and both QBs who saw action in 2022 transferred out of the program.

The Sooners tapped long-time Clemson offensive coordinators Brent Venables as their new head coach.

As the Sooners turn the page to 2022, they’re currently the odds-on favorite to win the Big 12. They are an intriguing pick for the National Championship. With Venables’ CFP experience, he brings a stabilizing presence to a team that desperately needs it.  

The Value Pick: Clemson | +1200 at BetMGM

Compared to many programs, Clemson had a fantastic 2021 season; finishing with 10 wins and capping their season with a bowl win.

However, Clemson isn’t most programs. For a team that regularly finds itself in the playoffs, the Cheez-It Bowls certainly felt like a step down.

With their down year in 2021, the Tigers are significantly undervalued in the initial National Championship odds. This team will go as far as second-year starter DJ Uiagalelei will take them.

If he takes the big steps up that we all expect, the Tigers will be well-positioned to make another National Championship run. 

2022 National Championship Prediction: Alabama | +200 at BetMGM

With Alabama’s returning players and top-tier recruiting class, they are poised to return to their championship level.

After losing two games to his former assistants in 2021, Nick Saban seems locked in and ready to lead the Crimson Tide to yet another CFP appearance.
