The third installment of college football’s national playoff rankings was announced Tuesday night, and there were no changes at the top of the board.

The top seven teams remained in place since last week, with undefeated Georgia still leading the way. The Bulldogs merit the top spot, but their title odds of -115 to -125 are just too short to recommend a wager. Georgia has lost its last six games against Alabama (+450), and the two teams are on course to face off in the SEC Championship game on Dec. 4.

Here’s a look at the top-10 teams in the College Football Playoff rankings, with odds courtesy of FanDuel, DraftKings, and PointsBet as of Wednesday.

What To Know About CFB National Title Contenders

Georgia (10-0, 7-3 ATS)

The Bulldogs are playing a veritable exhibition game against Charleston Southern this weekend. Georgia then faces Georgia Tech in their annual rivalry game before it likely plays Alabama for the SEC Championship.

Alabama (9-1, 6-4 ATS)

Two conference matchups remain, against Arkansas and in the Iron Bowl vs. Auburn. ‘Bama just needs to win one of those games to secure a spot in the SEC title game against Georgia.

Oregon (9-1, 5-5 ATS)

Oregon’s 35-28 win over Ohio State in Week 2 is the highlight of its season. The Ducks are 3-point dogs at Caesars in their road tilt at Utah this weekend.

Ohio State (9-1, 5-4-1 ATS)

The Buckeyes are laying a huge number against visiting Michigan State on Saturday. DraftKings has Ohio State -19. The Buckeyes then face arch-rival Michigan on the road.

Cincinnati (10-0, 6-4 ATS)

The biggest intrigue in the rankings involves Cincinnati somehow clawing its way into the fourth and final playoff position. The Bearcats have failed to cover ATS in their last four games. They’ll be looking for style points in their last two regular-season games against SMU and East Carolina.

Michigan (9-1, 8-2 ATS)

Assuming it takes care of business at Maryland this weekend, Michigan’s playoff fate hinges largely on beating Ohio State at home the following week. Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh is infamously 0-5 against the Buckeyes.

Michigan State (9-1, 8-2 ATS)

There’s a good chance we won’t be talking about Michigan State among the contenders here next week. Sparty faces a huge obstacle as 19-point road dogs at Ohio State on Saturday.

Notre Dame (9-1, 7-3 ATS)

Wins in Notre Dame’s final games against Georgia Tech and Stanford won’t be enough to land a playoff berth. The Irish need major help especially without a conference championship game to play in.

Oklahoma State (9-1, 8-2 ATS)

The only blemish on OSU’s record is a 24-21 loss to Iowa State. It plays in-state rival Oklahoma in the final week of the season and could face the Sooners again in the Big 12 championship game.

Wake Forest (9-1, 6-3-1 ATS)

The ACC’s new top dog takes on Clemson and Boston College in the next two weeks. Wake Forest has already secured a spot in the ACC Championship game.
