2014 National Championship Odds: South Carolina ranked ninth by odds of winning CFB Playoff

It's never too early to start thinking about gambling away your life savings on the 2014 football season.

Scott Halleran

On the same day the South Carolina football team secured its best-ever finish in both of the major polls, it  learned that it will be starting off 2014 almost exactly where it was the year before in the eyes of the Las Vegas oddsmakers.

Bovada gives South Carolina 25 to 1 odds of winning the 2014-15 College Football Playoff, putting the Gamecocks tied with seven other teams as the ninth-likeliest to take home the national championship.

Carolina is given the same odds as LSU, Georgia, Florida, Clemson, UCLA, Baylor, and 2014 opening opponent Texas A&M.

In total, South Carolina will play five regular season opponents that are given equal or better chances of winning it all. Three of those games will be played on the road (at Clemson, at Auburn, and at Florida).

Bovada doesn't seem to like Missouri's chances of repeating as SEC East champions. They've given the Tigers 40 to 1 odds of winning the CFB Playoff, the fourth-worst in the division.
