Florida 33/1 to win 2015 FBS Title

Florida Gators 2015 FBS championship odds college football

LAS VEGAS, NV (The Spread) – Could the Florida Gators be in store for a major bounce back season now that they’re healthy again?

The Gators didn’t lose a ton of offensive talent to the NFL but the same cannot be said on the defensive side of the ball. Defensive tackle Dominique Easley, cornerback Marcus Roberson, linebacker Ronald Powell and cornerback Loucheiz Purifoy have all turned pro back in May.

That said, the Gators still boast one of the better defenses in the SEC thanks to 2013 All-American cornerback Vernon Hargreaves and 2013 All-Conference defensive end Dante Fowler. In fact, the entire starting defensive line of Fowler, Darious Cummings, Jonathan Bullard and Leon Orr return, with the only significant loss was the injury-prone Easley.Neiron Ball, Antonio Morrison, Michale Taylor, Marcus Maye, Jabari Gorman and Brian Poole all return to Will Muschamp’s defense as well.

The real questions are on the offensive side of the ball, although optimism is also rising thanks to the return of Jeff Driskel and the implementation of the spread offense. The change in systems should benefit Driskel greatly, as it plays more to his skill set then the previous offense. Still, Florida owned one of the least effective offenses in the nation last year and there would have to be a dramatic turnaround for the Gators to be playing for a national championship, let alone a SEC title.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Gators are currently 33/1 to win the 2015 FBS Championship in college football next season. They are, however, favored to win the SEC East Division at 3/1 and have 6/1 odds to make the four-team playoff this upcoming year. If injuries aren’t an issue like they were last year, the Gators could sneak up on some teams in 2014. The defense is certainly good enough to keep the team competitive but whether or not Driskel turns the page as a leader and a passer remains to be seen.
