College football season is exactly 100 days away, with the first handful of games on Saturday, Aug. 26, but bettors on the sport already have multiple options. The latest of those is regular-season win totals for each team.

The national championship futures market was released before Georgia won the previous year’s championship; the Bulldogs remain the favorite to win their third straight title over Southeastern Conference rival Alabama and Big Ten powerhouses Michigan and Ohio State.

There are also point spreads for many big games, including the season opener that figures to be a top-10 battle between Florida State and LSU in Orlando.

Now oddsmakers, including those at FanDuel Sportsbook, have win totals posted for most Power Five conference teams.

Ohio State checks in with an over/under win total of 10½, with the under priced at -105 and the over at -115. This implies a slightly higher chance of the Buckeyes, who went 11-2 in the regular season last year, winning 11 or more games than they have of winning 10 or fewer.

(The win total of 10½ means bettors can wager whether the Buckeyes will win “over” that number or “under” that number, with the book taking a higher percentage of winnings on the under.)

Ohio State’s Week 1 opponent, Indiana, has a significantly worse win total at 3½, but with -162 juice to the over.

Other notable win totals for expected top teams, from FanDuel Sportsbook as of Thursday, May 18 — 100 days before the season kicks off:

Alabama Crimson Tide 10½ (o+142, u-176)
