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.
