The 2017 College Football Playoff has yet to finish, but gamblers can already place wagers on teams to win the 2018 CFP.  

The University of Wisconsin football team is listed at 60-1 odds to win the national championship next season, according to the Westgate Las Vegas Superbook

UW went 11-3 this season, losing to Penn State in the Big Ten Championship before defeating Western Michigan in the Cotton Bowl. 

Alabama is listed as the overall favorite at 3-1. Ohio State (8-1), Michigan (12-1) and Penn State (30-1) are the Big Ten teams listed with better odds than the Badgers. 

The Badgers could return as many as 16 starters from the 2016 season, including quarterback Alex Hornibrook. Junior linebacker T.J. Watt left UW early for the 2017 NFL Draft and tackle Ryan Ramczyk is still mulling his decision on whether to forego his senior season and enter the NFL draft.
