Bookmakers Release College Football Playoff Odds
Sportsbooks have released odds on the college football playoffs.
In a picture perfect setup, the #1 through #4 ranked teams in the nation will be competing against one another as Alabama (1), Clemson (2), Ohio State (3), and Washington (4) are all playing in the semi-final to determine who plays in the big game January 9.
Game 1: Washington (4) vs. Alabama (1)
Alabama are favored by -15.5 against Washington on New Year's Eve. The early betting action has a massive 67% majority on the Crimson Tide to advance to the championship. The line opened at -14 and quickly shot up by 1.5 points.
Game 2: Ohio State (3) vs. Clemson (@)
Ohio State is favored by -3 points against Clemson. 56% of players are on Clemson to cover the spread as of this publication. The line opened and remains at -3 despite this early majority.
Sportsbook Review suggests players stick with only top rated betting sites for their playoff and bowl betting needs. Sportsbooks that are new or have been through only a couple of football seasons are risky bets as deposits start to slow down and payout speed becomes important ahead of the holidays.
