The SEC has the 2 big favorites as Georgia has a 39% chance of winning it all, followed closely by Alabama at 35%. Here are the full odds, courtesy of ESPN Stats & Info:
The Allstate Playoff Predictor says there's a 74% chance that either @GeorgiaFootball or @AlabamaFTBL wins the National Championship. No other school has more than a 7% chance right now and 1-loss Ohio State still has the 4th-best chance.

Even though Michigan is undefeated thus far, it’s still a bit interesting that they’re on this and not Penn State or Iowa. Both the Nittany Lions and Hawkeyes are undefeated through 4 games and are top 5 in the latest AP poll.
The Buckeyes are even on here, despite losing to Oregon a few weeks ago. This can and will change as the season goes on, especially when Ohio State and Michigan play later this season.
The same can be said about this Saturday’s Iowa-Penn State as well since the winner will most likely jump onto next week’s playoff predictor tweet.
