Bovada.lv has released their latest BCS championship and they were kind enough to send them this way.

Despite a dominating 41-14 victory over the then seventh-ranked Miami Hurricanes and moving up to #2 in the BCS standings, the Florida State Seminoles didn’t gain much ground on the Alabama Crimson Tide or Oregon Ducks in this week’s national championship odds. Many thought that the Seminoles’ win combined with both the Tide and Ducks being on a bye week would make up some ground.

The Tide’s odds did go down from 8/5 to 7/4, but the Seminoles remained at 9/4 for the second consecutive week.

The Ducks, however, did see their odds rise from 9/4 to 11/5.  The Ducks will almost certainly regain their spot at #2 if they can defeat the fifth-ranked Stanford Cardinal Thursday at 9:00 pm EST.

The Tide will also face their stiffest test of the season (or at least their stiffest test since defeating the Texas A&M Aggies 49-42) when they host the 13th-ranked LSU Tigers Saturday night at 8:00 pm EST.

Here are the rest of the odds:

                                          Week 10           Current

Alabama                                   8/5                    7/4

Oregon                                      9/4                    11/5

Florida State                           9/4                    9/4

Ohio State                                9/1                    9/1

Baylor                                       12/1                  12/1

Stanford                                   33/1                  40/1

Auburn                                      66/1                  50/1

Miami                                          33/1                  Off the Board
