Jalen Hurts Transfer To Oklahoma Moves College Football Betting Futures

Two college football powerhouses picked up quarterback transfers from two even bigger (SEC) powerhouses.

One shifted betting futures markets; one didn’t.

Justin Fields bailed on Georgia for Ohio State. Fields was the No. 1 QB prospect in the 2018 class but opted to avoid the grind of SEC defenses for the friendlier confines of the Big 10.

Ohio State remained at +1,400 odds to the win the 2019-20 National Championship at FanDuel Sportsbook.

Jalen Hurts, who won a national championship for Alabama as a starter and a second — well, technically as a starter before being benched for Tua Tagovailoa — has now transferred to Oklahoma.

Upon news of the Hurts’ transfer, FanDuel moved Oklahoma’s futures from +2,000 to +1,400. The number dropped back to +1,600 as of Thursday morning.

That’s a sizable jump considering it’s still not 100 percent certain that Hurts will be eligible to start this coming year.

Hurts’ former team, Alabama, remains the national title favorite at +200. Defending champ Clemson sits at +250. Fields’ former team, Georgia, is the third favorite at +750.

Two interesting value plays going into the season include Michigan (+2,000) and Florida (+3,500). If you enjoy lighting money on fire, bet on any PAC-12 team.
