According to Bovada, Bulldogs Now a Longer Shot for National Title, Even Money for Eight Wins

Mississippi State stood as a long shot national champion in the eyes of oddsmakers immediately following Florida State's national championship victory. In new released odds, the Bulldogs have fallen even further according to the oddsmakers at Bovada.

When Bovada first released their odds on which team would claim the 2014 national championship, the Mississippi State Bulldogs could be called a longshot at 100/1.  Tuesday, the sportsbetting company released updated odds showing Mississippi State now stood at even longer odds at 150/1.

A handful of other schools hold those same odds: Oklahoma State, which once stood at 40/1, BYU, Tennessee, and Virginia Tech, all three which once stood at 100/1 as well.

While the Bulldogs are not near the favorites to win the national championship, oddsmakers do figure on a successful season for Mississippi State.  With an over/under set at 7.5 wins, the Bulldogs are even money on the over while in order to win $100 on the under, one would have to bet $130 dollars.

A look around the SEC shows that the Alabama Crimson Tide have moved into a tie with Florida State as the odds on favorites at 11/2. Auburn, the defending SEC champions stand at 10/1.  Georgia has made a leap from 25/1 to 18/1, and LSU moved from the same odds to 20/1.

Florida and South Carolina saw their odds drop from 25/1 to 33/1, while Ole Miss has seen their odds improve from 60/1 to 44/1. The new kids on the SEC block, Missouri and Texas A&M, saw their odds decline to 66/1 from 40/1 and 25/1 respectively.

The Arkansas Razorbacks tumbled from 100/1 odds to 300/1 odds.
