Caesar’s Sportsbook in Las Vegas has released its odds for every college football team, and the oddsmakers there believe the Irish are 40-to-1 favorites to win next season’s College Football Playoff.

In other words, oddsmakers believe there is about a 2.4 percent chance of the Irish winning two playoff games and leaving with the Dr. Pepper-sponsored trophy.

The Clemson Tigers and Alabama Crimson Tide have the two most favorable odds, at 2-to-1 and 5-to-2, respectively. They were also the participants in this year’s College Football Playoff championship.

The Irish were 40-to-1 odds at Westgate Sportsbook in Las Vegas on Jan. 8 last year and 35-to-1 at Southpoint Sportsbook on Jan. 11.

Here are the odds for all of Notre Dame’s opponents to win the playoff, according to Caesar’s:

If I put the over/under of Notre Dame regular season wins at 9 1/2 for the 2019 season, which side of that action do you take?
