The case has always been made for an oddsmaker to be on any college football polling committee.

Sadly, the old farts who run NCAA football will never allow that to happen, despite the grand idea.

The first CFP rankings came out last night, and we've lined up those position with each team's championship odds from our shop.

Of note, the Miami Hurricanes have better title odds than seven teams that are CFP ranked, and the same odds as three ranked teams.

Additionally, below are the latest Heisman (tightest race in years), Bear Bryant, Doak Walker and Fred Biletnikoff awards odds.

Finally, there are updated numbers for the NFL Draft's top overall pick (still Caleb Williams) and the first non-QB selected (still Marvin Harrison Jr.).
