College football odds: 2022 – 2023

Here is a look at college football betting odds to win the National Championship for 2022 -2023.

College football futures report

Alabama (+225): It is rare that Alabama doesn’t enter a season as the favorite and the big reason the Crimson Tide are atop odds boards for 2022 – 2023 is because Heisman-winning quarterback Bryce Young is returning.

Georgia (+275): Georgia’s defense takes a hit after 15 players headed to the NFL. But the Bulldogs, much like Alabama and much like Clemson in the past decade, are of the status of re-loading (not rebuilding) with NFL prospects every year.

Ohio State (+550): The Buckeyes will be right back in the mix in 2022 with CJ Stroud returning behind center. Ryan Day’s crew will look to tighten things up on defense and special teams as they allowed 45 points to Utah in the Rose Bowl and 42 points to Michigan in late November.

Clemson (+1200): Bounceback year for the Tigers? Signs point to Clemson again being in the National Title mix. Quarterback DJ Uiagalelei came on strong in the second half of the year and led the Tigers to a seven-game win streak to close out the season.

Basics of NCAA football futures

Sports betting is legal in many US States, with more legislation moving towards legalization every day. There are several sportsbooks with user-friendly apps that are available to serve as a platform for betting on NCAA futures.

The advice in this article is specified towards sports betting on sites such as DraftKings Sportsbook and FanDuel Sportsbook.

When a sport is in season, the “Futures” tab can usually be found next to the game lines. But if you want to bet on the CFP before the season starts, most books will bring you right to the Futures section.

The odds for each team are primarily indicated in two ways. Most books will list a team as a +200 favorite, indicating that a $100 bet on that team to win the national title will pay out $200 if successful.

Some books list those odds as 2/1, but the math is the same. Those books will use those odds as fractions as well. As an example, a team listed as an 11/2 favorite to win the title would pay out 5.5x the investment. That same multiplier would be listed as +550 under the other format.

These odds can change throughout the season and even during the preseason if any news surfaces about injuries, transfers, or scandals related to the athletic department or coaching staff of a program.

History and favorites

Due to the top-heavy recruiting system in place for college football programs, it is extremely rare for an unknown team to win the national title.

But Ohio State was the fourth-ranked team in the field of four when it won the 2014 CFP title.

There is some value to be found if you’re willing to bet against the consensus favorites, which are currently Clemson and Alabama. There is also value if you find the right sportsbook on which to take one of those favorites, so be sure to shop around for the best odds at online books.

When it comes time to bet the actual matchup in the College Football Playoff title game, keep in mind that the underdog had won or covered the spread in all five championships until LSU’s convincing victory in 2020. Also, five of those six title games have gone over the assigned point total.
