Can’t get no respect.

Man, if you can’t use this to motivate your team…

Bovada’s current national futures odds have Kentucky at 750-1 to win the playoff. Yes, it’s a bit far-fetched to believe Kentucky is far enough along as a program to seriously contend for a national championship while playing in the SEC.

But here are some of the teams (with 2018 records) that Bovada’s odds have as more likely than Kentucky to do it in 2019:

  • Kansas (3-9)
  • Louisville (2-10)
  • New Mexico (3-9)
  • Northern Illinois (8-6)

    New Mexico and Northern Illinois are both basically another Central Florida. They could go undefeated and still wouldn’t make the playoff. They don’t have the schedule to justify it. Not that Kansas, Louisville, or Tulsa will run the table but at least they have a legitimate path. Some may argue against Tulsa but at least they have some big boys on their schedule.
