College Football Futures: Boston College 175/1 To Win BCS National Title

The gambling side Bodog recently released gambling future odds to win the 2011-12 BCS National Championship. Now while Oklahoma (9/2) is the early favorite to raise this year's crystal football, Boston College goes off at 175/1 to win the big game.

Who's ready to throw away $100 in the hopes that Spaziani, Kevin Rogers and Chase Rettig's golden arm will turn you into one rich SOB?

Don't all raise your hands at once.

In the ACC, Florida State has the best odds of winning the mythical National Championship at 10/1. Virginia Tech (35/1), Miami (60/1) and North Carolina (80/1) have the next best odds to win the BCS from the conference. Other ACC programs on the board include Clemson (100/1) and Georgia Tech (150/1). 

I personally found Georgia Tech's inclusion on the list a bit strange. Maybe the Jackets making the list has something to do with a relatively weak non-conference schedule that includes Western Carolina, MTSU and Kansas, but going from 6-7 (4-4 ACC) to BCS title contender in just one year seems like a stretch. No signs of N.C. State or Maryland, either. You gotta bet the field (20/1) if you want some action on the Pack or the Terps.

175/1 is a sucker bet, no? Any of you crazy enough to throw some cash on the Eagles here?
