If we expect all the favorites to make the 2017-18 playoff, it’ll be Alabama vs. Florida State, and Ohio State vs. USC.

Last year we saw Alabama (+125), Ohio State (+195), Clemson (+195) and Washington (+500) make the 4-team playoff. In the National Championship, Clemson upset Alabama 35-31 in an epic game. Oklahoma (+175) was the only one of the “favorites” not to make the 4-team playoff.
