When comparing the College Football Playoff odds against the AP Poll rankings released today, there is no disconnect in the Top 4 teams as both sets align perfectly.

But after that, there is a good amount of disparity between the books and the media.

Currently, we have USC with the fifth-best odds in the country at 14-1, but the Trojans are ranked No. 14 in the poll.

Notre Dame and Utah are fifth and seventh in the poll, but seventh and 10th on the odds board.

Texas is the biggest anomaly. The Longhorns will start the season unranked, but they are tied for the 10th-best CFP odds.

Pittsburgh and BYU have extremely high odds compared to their rankings while teams like Auburn, LSU Florida, Penn State, Tennessee and Florida State are in the odds Top 25 but absent from the AP Poll.
