The push to the final four-team College Football Playoff is drawing more interest as the most meaningful games are played in the weeks ahead. That includes CFP Top 25 games each week and a pair of top 10 battles on Saturday, Nov. 11. 

College football playoff- No. 3 Michigan (-4.5) at No. 10 Penn State
- No. 9 Ole Miss at No. 2 Georgia (-11)

And Washington (-8.5) has a key conference game hosting Utah as the Huskies try to keep their CFP hopes alive. 

Ohio State, Georgia, Michigan, Florida State and Washington all remain undefeated at 9-0 ahead of Week 11 picks, bets and games. 

Leading online sportsbook BetOnline has current odds posted for which teams will win the 2023 College Football Playoff, and odds for teams to make the 4-team playoff. 

The CFP rankings are adjusted each week, and odds are that all of the current top-4 teams will not make the 4-team playoff. Here are the current rankings, along with the key games to finish the regular season with some advance odds and potential conference championship game matchups. 

Ranking Team Win Nat'l Title Make Final Four
1 Ohio State +725 +115
2 Georgia +300 -215
3 Michigan +260 -180
4 Florida State +700 -350
5 Washington +1200 +175
6 Oregon +900 +100
7 Texas +1500 +115
8 Alabama +750 +250
9 Mississippi +15000 +7500
10 Penn State +10000 +900
11 Louisville +10000 +1600
17 Oklahoma +25000 +2500

The odds to make the College Football Playoff as a Final Four team reflect Florida State as most likely followed by Georgia, Michigan and Oregon. No. 1 Ohio State has the fifth lowest odds (tied Texas) with four more CFP rankings before the committee makes its CFP selections on Dec. 3. 

Mississippi has no CFP Final Four odds at BetOnline, perhaps because the Rebels lost to Alabama and are 1-game back of the Crimson Tide with two conference games left including this week at Georgia. 

Odds for Ole Miss are are available at Bookmaker, a top online sportsbook, who has Mississippi at +15000 to win the national championship with another leading online sportsbook posted +7500 for Ole Miss to make the CFP. Also, BookMaker has significantly different odds than BetOnline for Penn State (+5500) and Louisville (+15000) to win the national title, with both still longshots and Penn State's only chance to stay alive is to beat Michigan on Nov. 11.  

Oregon and Washington are riding their Heisman-leading favorites to the Pac 12 Championship game and a potential spot in the four team playoff and shot at the national championship. Oregon QB Bo Nix (+150) and Washington QB Michael Penix, Jr. (+160) are the clear favorites to win the Heisman Trophy, according to odds at BookMaker, followed by Florida State QB Jordan Travis (+750), Ohio State WR Marvin Harrison, Jr. (+950) and Michigan QB J.J. McCarthy

Watch all the big game college football action and note the adjusted betting lines as posted and compare them to the advance lines. Plenty of power teams with explosive, balanced and efficient offenses along with defensive dominators who will make up the Final Four of the College Football Playoff. 

That includes Oregon, who can run the table even with some big games to finish. The Ducks are the best value on the current odds board to win the national title, and sport a scoring differential of +26.2 points per game - second-best in the country behind Michigan (+34) vs. FBS opponents. Oregon and Michigan can spoil the SEC's dominance in the title game but Georgia (+21.8 PPG diff) and Florida State (+22.6) are clear contenders with the Seminoles having the clearest path the the Final Four as double-digit favorites in their final three games.

You can bet on it.
