Bookies are fearing the Ohio State Buckeyes as well they should be with the second shortest odds to win the 2018 NCAA College Football Championship game at just shy of 5/1 odds. Bookies and agents will need a solid Pay Per Head that has the ability to customize odds, provide sharp reports around the clock and offer LIVE IN-PLAY WAGERING as a means of boosting profit.
Buckeyes to go Undefeated?
ESPN.com was predicting last week that Ohio State had the best chance of going unbeaten in 2017 heading into the Bowl season and, as such, had the best odds of playing in the 2018 College Football Playoffs.
ESPN's College Football Power Index has firmly planted its flag on Ohio State -- not Alabama -- as the best team in the country heading into the season. The model thinks the Buckeyes are about a field goal better than Alabama on a neutral field, but one projection in particular drives the point home.
FPI doesn't project who will make the College Football Playoff because humans make up the committee and will determine who makes football's final four. But the easiest way to lock up a spot in the playoff is to be a Power 5 school and win all your games (simple, right?). Going undefeated is something FPI projects. And that's really where Ohio State shines.
Ohio State has a 35 percent chance to be undefeated entering bowl season, the best in the country.
Oddsmakers have the Buckeyes priced at just -110 to win OVER 11 regular season games in 2017.
Why Use a Pay Per Head
Bookies and agents will want to take full advantage of Pay Per Head firms that handle all overhead while offering platforms once thought impossible years ago in the world of bookmaking that include a LIVE DEALER casino and LIVE IN-PLAY WAGERING along with hundreds of unique prop bets and futures, all for a low weekly cost per customer that is typically several times less than what a customer would actually cost without the use of a Pay Per Head service.
