Will Florida win back-to-back national championships? 

Most bookmakers think so.

1. Florida

Last year’s SEC champions bring back nearly every player, including Heisman candidate Tim Tebow. Urban Myers’s Gators might have more depth then any other team this year in NCAA football. 

The Gators are well-coached and have skilled players at every position.  

There's no mystery why they are +150 at Lines2bet.

2. Texas

A lot of smart guys have USC and the Sooners listed No. 2 after Florida, but that slot belongs to another Big 12 team in the Texas Longhorns.  

Dynamic quarterback Colt McCoy is back to help lead Mack Brown's team to the BCS Championship game. 

Texas is a +250 at Lines2bet.

3. Oklahoma

Look at the talented Oklahoma Sooners to be in the hunt, especially since they have the bitter taste of losing last year's championship game against Florida.  

Will Bob Stoops be the Marv Levy of college football? Sooner nation hopes not. 

Oklahoma is a +450 at Lines2bet.

4. USC

Matt Barkley might be a stud quarterback, but can a freshman lead Pete Carrol’s Trojans to another BCS Championship? 

It won’t be easy, and for that reason, the PAC-10’s most dominant team drops down to No. 4 on this list. 

The Trojans are a +400 at Lines2bet.

5. LSU

LSU might be a stretch for some, but Les Miles has a nice core of young talent that will help them compete for the SEC. 

Two vetern players in running back Charles Scott and wide receiver Brandon LaFell will help quarterback Jordan Jefferson score a lot and scare opposing teams, including Florida. 

LSU is a +1800 at Lines2bet.

Other teams to look at include Alabama (+1500), Ohio State (+800), Penn State (+1500), and Boise State at (+5500).
