It’s June, so naturally it’s time to think about college football.
While 2020 national title odds have been out for a month, FanDuel Sportsbook NJ has just released lines for over 100 games.
Where to start?
Alabama & Clemson heavy favorites in all games
No shocker, but in the nine listed games, Alabama and Clemson are no less than a 13-point favorite in all of them.
What is interesting is of the two shared opponents of each — Texas A&M and South Carolina — Clemson is more heavily favored than Alabama in both.
- 9/7/19: Texas A&M at Clemson (-17)
- 10/12/19: Alabama (-14) at Texas A&M
- 9/21/19: Alabama (-16) at South Carolina
- 11/20/19: Clemson (-21) at South Carolina
…Clemson is a full five points clear Alabama on the spread at South Carolina. With the Aggies as a shared opponent, the 3-point difference in spread is just a home advantage. However…
Georgia will face some real tests
Georgia is the consensus third preseason betting favorite (occasionally flip-flopped with Ohio State). FanDuel pegs two potential difficult matchups for the Dawgs among the five listed games:
- September 21st: Georgia is a -11.5 home favorite against Notre Dame
- November 2nd: Georgia is a -4.5 neutral field favorite against Florida in the World’s Largest Cocktail Party.
Odds & ends
- Speaking of Florida, they begin the college football season on August 24th in sweltering heat at Miami. The Gators are a full touchdown favorite against the Hurricanes.
- The biggest favorite among the initial 100+ games listed is a September 1 home game for Oklahoma (-24) against Houston.
- The early listed game that’s going to absolutely get the least amount of action? While it’s tempting to say UNLV vs Fresno State, do you know of anyone planning on taking a hard look at South Alabama (+14.5) vs Troy (-14.5)?
- Finally, of the big rivalry games, Ohio State (+2.5) visiting Michigan (-2.5) on November 30th projects to be the closest battle. If you think that Ohio State is primed to take a step back with their new coach, Michigan at less than a full 3 is worth a look.
