The Georgia Bulldogs pulled off a rare national championship repeat this past season, and right now they're favoured to run it back again.

The latest: Georgia dismantled TCU, 65-7, in the College Football Playoff national title game on Jan. 9. The Bulldogs will have a new QB under centre, but they still top the board as the favourite to claim next year's title.

Here are the college football national championship odds for the 2023-24 season.

Best college football national championship odds

The favourite: Georgia Bulldogs (+230)

Who else but the Dawgs?

Georgia's 15-0 championship season made the red and black one of just three schools to go back-to-back this millennium (and the first of the CFP era). Naturally, the Bulldogs are favoured to win again.

The greatest uncertainty with Georgia is roster turnover, but that's a reality for any college football team. And after losing eight defensive starters to the NFL ahead of the 2022 season, Georgia still posted a top-five scoring defence en route to the title.

Safe to say coach Kirby Smart knows how to reload.

Edge rusher Jalen Carter is among the next crop of Bulldogs on his way to the NFL ranks, but the Bulldogs have multiple five-star options waiting to replace him — including incoming freshman Damon Wilson from Georgia's No. 2-ranked 2023 recruiting class.

At quarterback, Stetson Bennett will pass the torch to Carson Beck, who appeared in seven games this year and has been with the program since 2020.

Other CFB national championship picks

Best value: Ohio State Buckeyes (+700)

Perennial contenders Ohio State are looking to get over that semifinal hump after back-to-back exits.

We're pretty confident about this roster at every position except for quarterback, which is certainly an unknown entering 2023. With C.J. Stroud graduating to the NFL, Kyle McCord and Devin Brown will battle it out for the top spot in training camp.

Whoever takes over will have no shortage of options at their disposal. Wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr. will make either QB's life easy, and so will Emeka Egbuka.

Not to mention, McCord and Brown will be able to rely on stud running back TreVeyon Henderson on the ground.

Possessing game-wreckers at every level of the defence in Michael Hall Jr., Denzel Burke and Jack Sawyer, this may just be Ohio State's year.

Team to watch: Washington Huskies (+5,000)

Washington checks a lot of the boxes we like to see from a potential darkhorse contender.

Quarterback isn't an issue with Michael Penix Jr. under centre. Starting 13 games for the Huskies last year after transferring from Indiana, he posted 4,641 passing yards, 31 touchdowns and just eight interceptions.

He has a legitimate No. 1 receiving option at his disposal in Rome Odunze. The 6-foot-3, 200lbs wide receiver followed up an impressive sophomore season with 1,145 receiving yards and seven touchdowns as a junior.

Then there's game-breaking EDGE rusher Bralen Trice. The defender totalled 12.0 tackles for a loss and 9.0 sacks in a breakout 2022 campaign.
