The moment we’ve all been waiting for. The 2019 college football season is about to kickoff and this year a new element will add even more excitement to NCAAF: sports betting.
As many states as 12 states now offer sports betting as of right now with more states to join in September. As we enter the freshman year of sports betting in college football, let’s look at the big favorites to win it all this season.
Betting on future odds in college football can be considered a shortcut to cash.
Only two teams have a big chance to win the national championship: Alabama Crimson Tide (+225) and Clemson Tigers (+250). This one is “too close to call” as odds are changing on a daily basis and you can find sites listing Alabama as favorite as well as other sites listing Clemson as favorite.
The other schools? Georgia Bulldogs (+900) is the only other team with triple digit odds, giving us a sense that another ‘Bama/Clemson championship game is in the making.
Another popular bet in college football is for the winner of the Heisman Trophy.
Once again, we are talking about Bama and Clemson as two young talented quarterbacks are leading the way. Trevor Lawrance (Clemson) and Tua Tagovailoa (Alabama) both sharing odds at +300 are the clear-cut favorites, followed by long-shot bets for Justin Fields (Ohio State) and Jalen Hurts (Oklahoma) both at (+1200).
