With Cam Newton leaving Auburn for the NFL the Oklahoma Sooners are the preseason favorites on the BCS National Championship futures.

At Bovada the Sooners are heavy favorites on the futures at 15/4. Part of the Sooners' rise to the top of the odds has to do with a number of other programs losing a ton of talent to the NFL, but it's definitely not the only reason the oddsmakers like what they see in Oklahoma.

The Sooners' offense will once again be led by quarterback Landry Jones. He put up some impressive numbers a year ago, and with another year's experience and a talented supporting cast he should be a Heisman contender. Jones' top receiver Ryan Broyles returns, but there is a change in the backfield with the departure of DeMarco Murray. Look for Roy Finch to make the transition to starting running back pretty easily.

After the Sooners on the odds list come the Alabama Crimson Tide at 11/2. This may be a surprise after the Alabama offense was gutted. Gone from last year's squad are starting QB Greg McElroy, Heisman-winning running back Mark Ingram, and No. 1 receiver Julio Jones. Those are pretty big shoes to fill, but Alabama shouldn't loss much of a step with a strong group of underclassmen ready to step up. A.J. McCarron looks to be the heir to McElroy at quarterback, while Trent Richardson will go from splitting carries with Igram to carrying the bulk of the load out of the backfield. Alabama's defense remains pretty intact from a year ago, which should give the offense a chance to find its way early on in the season.

After the Sooners and Crimson Tide the futures odds rise quickly at Bovada, with Florida State at 10/1, LSU and Oregon both at 12/1, and Boise State and Ohio State at 14/1. If you're looking for Auburn, they're way down the list at 70/1.

From that group we're going to take a closer look at Oregon and Ohio State. The Ducks made it all the way to the title game last season before falling to Auburn. Oregon may be a smart pick for bettors right now at 12/1 because their top playmakers are all returning. Running back LaMichael James and quarterback Darron Thomas both passed on leaving early for the NFL draft to take another run at a national title with the Ducks. James is a definite Heisman contender, and he and Thomas could lead the Ducks beyond last year's finish.

Ohio State is a question mark for bettors this season because of the suspensions that will dog them for their first five games. Due to last year's memorabilia scandal a number of players, most notably starting QB Terrelle Pryor, are suspended for the first five games of the season. Also out for the first five games is head coach Jim Tressel. If not for these suspensions Ohio State would likely be much higher on the odds, and if they can survive their first five games they could be worth a flyer.

Oregon remains the team to beat in college footballl with the best odds to win the BCS title this season.

It is not hard to see why with the highest scoring offense in the nation, the third ranked rushing offense, and a solid defense. They only face one more ranked team this season and that is Arizona in their second to last game. I am picking them, as they are simply the best team in the nation and they have schooled every team they have played.

Alabama has one loss, but Bovada has them with the second best odds at +250. The Tide are on track to play in the SEC title game and if they win that they will likely get a title shot. However, they still have some work to do facing three more ranked teams including second ranked Auburn in their season finale.

I think they will run the table and get to the BCS big game, but they will lose to Oregon. Behind electrifying QB Cam Newton Auburn is in second place in the BCS rankings and Bovada has them at +300 to win it all.

Their big game is their last one facing Alabama, as the winner will likely play in the SEC title game. The Tigers can rack up the yards on the ground with the nation's fourth ranked rushing offense, but can they win the BCS championship with the nation's 57th ranked defense? I say no.

Boise State is at +450 at Bovada, but while it is likely they will go undefeated again they are not in a BCS conference and their schedule is not that strong. They have a great offense and defense, but to get to the big game they may need Oregon, Auburn, and TCU to lose, who are all teams that are ranked higher in the BCS rankings.

Bovada has TCU at +700 and their upcoming game against undefeated Utah, who are at +2500, is HUGE. The winner of that game, which will be TCU, will have to leap-frog some other teams and just like Boise State it does not help at all that they are not in a BCS conference. Nebraska is at +2500 at Bovada and Oklahoma is at +5000 and there is a very good chance they will duke it out in the Big 12 title game.

They are pretty far down in the BCS rankings and even if one wins the Big 12 championship game they will likely need a couple of teams ranked higher than them to lose. Stanford and Ohio State are both at +5000 at Bovada, but Stanford has already lost to Oregon and what hurts both teams more is that they do not play in a conference title game.

These teams are long shots and in my opinion no-shots, as neither is currently ranked in the top 10 of the BCS standings and the many teams ahead of them will have to fall apart. Here are the odds at Bovada to win the BCS title as of November 3rd.

Oregon +140
Alabama +250
Auburn +300
Boise St +450
TCU +700
Utah +2500
Nebraska +2500
Oklahoma +5000
Stanford +5000
Ohio St +5000
