UCLA has seventh-best odds at winning national title

The latest Vegas odds now have UCLA within striking distance of the inaugural College Football Playoff.

Online sportsbook Bovada.lv gave Jim Mora’s team 14-to-1 odds to win the national title, seventh-best in the country and an improvement from the 25-to-1 odds they were given on January 7. Bovada.lv also slotted the UCLA’s over/under for total wins at 9.5.

Ask any Bruin, and he’ll almost certainly take the over.

“We’re not young anymore,” sophomore linebacker Myles Jack told Jay Mohr this week. “My (freshman) class played a lot. … I think with the toughness of the schedule, it’s the perfect season for us to make that run for the national push.”

Here are the current championship odds for some of the other top teams across the country:

    I’m shocked that USC has the 10th best odds to win it all. They will win 9 games max.

    Hey Jack, why don’t you put up the link for JIll’s article on Myles Jack? She is doing more work than you and YOU are supposed to be the UCLA beat writer. Everyone, here is the link if you want a good read and ACTUAL substance regarding UCLA from the Daily News:

    There is nothing more awkward than a Jay Moore interview. So bad.
