2020 College Football Odds Breakdown

 

It’s already been five months since the Clemson Tigers destroyed the Alabama Crimson Tide 44-16 to win the 2019 CFP National Championship Game, easily cashing in as 6-point underdogs on the college football odds board. Not only did the Tide get rolled, they suffered their biggest loss ever under head coach Nick Saban. Do Dabo Swinney and the Tigers have Saban’s number? They’re 2-1 SU and 3-0 ATS versus Alabama on the sport’s biggest stage.

Don’t be surprised if the same two teams end up playing in next year’s title game, which will take place Monday, January 13 at the Superdome in New Orleans. At press time, Clemson and Alabama have the best odds to win the 2020 National Championship; they’ll have much the same talent that brought them to last year’s game in Santa Clara, along with some of the hottest recruits in college football. The gap between them and everyone else is considerable – although anything can happen when there are 128 other FBS teams waiting in the wings.

 

College Football Lines: The Favorites

The usual suspects will be chasing down Clemson and Alabama in 2019-20, with a few important changes to keep in mind heading into the new campaign. Let’s take a look at the top five favorites on the NCAA football odds list at Bovada:

 1. Clemson Tigers: +225 College Football Bowl Odds

Swinney earned himself a record-breaking contract after leading the Tigers (15-0 SU, 9-6 ATS last year) to their second title in three seasons. No one had gone 15-0 before, so the 2018 Tigers may have been the best team of all-time. They’ll almost certainly be among this year’s contenders with Trevor Lawrence returning at quarterback, leading an offense that has virtually no weak spots. However, Clemson’s defense is very much a question mark after DE Clelin Ferrell (No. 4 overall), DT Christian Wilkins (No. 13) and DT Dexter Lawrence (No. 17) were all taken in the first round of the NFL Draft.

1. Alabama Crimson Tide: +225 College Football Bowl Odds

This is where Saban and the Tide (14-1 SU, 8-7 ATS) can get their revenge. Not only do they get QB Tua Tagovailoa for another season, Alabama also figures to have the best defense in the nation, at least on paper. While replacing DT Quinnen Williams (No. 3 overall) will be a challenge, there’s plenty of talent left in the cupboard, and Saban has done his usual eye-popping work, putting together a recruiting class that includes the country’s No. 1 prospect, DE Antonio Alfano. One fly in the ointment is place-kicking, which continued to be a sore spot in Tuscaloosa. Despite this, Alabama might actually have more value on the 2019 NCAA football odds list than Clemson – for a change.

3. Georgia Bulldogs: +650 College Football Bowl Odds

Maybe this will be the year Kirby Smart and the Bulldogs (11-3 SU, 8-6 ATS) finally go over the top. They almost beat Alabama in the title game two years ago before losing in overtime, then they dropped last year’s SEC title game to the Tide. This year’s team might be even better, with all four starters returning to the offensive line in front of QB Jake Fromm. Their defense is boosted by top recruits DE Nolan Smith and DT Travon Walker.

4. Ohio State Buckeyes: +900 College Football Bowl Odds

It’s another step down the 2019 college football odds board for Ohio State (13-1 SU, 7-7 ATS), who will be in their first full year without head coach Urban Meyer; Ryan Day will be under the headset from now on. The transition should be a smooth one, but it will be up to Georgia transfer Justin Fields to prove that he can play quarterback at this level. Will he be a good fit with offensive co-ordinator Mike Yurcich?

5. Oklahoma Sooners: +1400 College Football Bowl Odds

Speaking of transfers, hotshot head coach Lincoln Riley and the Sooners (12-2 SU, 6-7-1 ATS) have a high-profile one in QB Jalen Hurts, who leaves Alabama after losing his starting gig to Tagovailoa. Hurts has plenty of talent surrounding him, so the real concern in Norman is on defense, where new co-ordinator Alex Grinch (most recently with Ohio State) should be able to get more production out of last year’s awful secondary.
