The Ohio State Buckeyes climbed to No. 3 in the Associated Press Top 25 poll following their season-opening rout of Nebraska, and they're considered the second betting favorite for the national title by several sportsbooks.

While Alabama (275) has the second shortest national title odds at DraftKings behind Clemson (120), Ohio State has surpassed the Crimson Tide at several other sportsbooks.

FanDuel was offering Clemson at 175 on Monday, followed by Ohio State (200) and Alabama (400). The next closest team was Georgia at 1600.

BetMGM also listed Clemson (130) as the clear current favorite, with Ohio State and Alabama each at 350. Meanwhile, William Hill had moved Ohio State (275) ahead of Alabama (300) with Clemson the 160 favorite.

Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence remains the overwhelming favorite to win the Heisman Trophy.

Lawrence was being offered at -100 by FanDuel and -167 by DraftKings.

FanDuel listed Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields at 250, followed by Alabama quarterback Mac Jones at 500, with no other player being offered at less than 3000.

Jones (250) is second to Lawrence at DraftKings, with Fields third at 400 and the next closest player being Florida Gators quarterback Kyle Trask at 1600.
