As per my understanding:

router = switching + control plane
       = OF-Switch + ODL Controller

So, ODL can decide and add flows into switches to direct packets flow.

If you are looking something like,

H1 ------ ODL ------ H2

Then, I feel not possible. I have never seen host connected to host directly.

If you have multiple switches (in most cases), then all switches to be connected to ODL, so ODL can only provide control functionality.
