2020 College Football Odds Breakdown

 

The 2020 college football season has been made whole – almost. The Big Ten and Pac-12 have reversed their decisions to sit out the fall semester, joining the rest of the Power 5 conferences on Bovada’s NCAAF football odds board. The MAC and Mountain West have also returned to the field, leaving us with as close to a full slate of games as you could hope for during this pandemic.

Assuming they can pull this off, the 2020-21 College Football Playoff can now be played with all the usual top favorites involved – including the Ohio State Buckeyes (+250), who are wedged between the Clemson Tigers (+180) and the Alabama Crimson Tide (+350) on Bovada’s odds to win the 2020 National Championship. Meanwhile, here are the top three favorites at press time to win the SEC, Big 12, Big Ten and Pac-12 titles.

 

College Football Update: SEC

 

1. Alabama Crimson Tide: –280 NCAAF Football Odds

At No. 2 in the polls, the Crimson Tide (3-0 SU, 1-2 ATS) have weathered the storm thus far, although the college football odds tripped them up against both Missouri (+29 at home) and Ole Miss (+24 at home). Mac Jones has done his part since taking over at quarterback for the departed Tua Tagovailoa, throwing eight touchdown passes with just one interception.

2. Georgia Bulldogs: +250 NCAAF Football Odds

The No. 4-ranked Bulldogs (3-0 SU, 2-1 ATS) might have the best defense in the nation, but there were question marks about their offense, especially when Wake Forest transfer QB Jamie Newman opted out and USC transfer JT Daniels wasn’t medically cleared in time for their opener. Not a problem: Stetson Bennett has stepped in and thrown five TD passes with zero picks to keep Georgia atop the SEC East.

 

3. Florida Gators: +500 NCAAF Football Odds

The 2020 NCAA football odds have shot up and down for the No. 10 Gators (2-1 SU, 1-2 ATS) since the season began, but they’re trending in the wrong direction after last week’s 41-38 loss to the Texas A&M Aggies, who cashed in as 6-point home dogs after Florida’s defense coughed up the lead late in the fourth quarter.

College Football Update: Big 12

 

1. Oklahoma Sooners: +150 NCAAF Football Odds

Things are even crazier in the Big 12, where the Sooners (2-2 SU and ATS) fell out of the rankings after losses to Kansas State (+28 away) and Iowa State (+8 at home). However, the 2020 college football odds still love OU to win the conference after they came back to beat Texas (+2.5) in last week’s Red River Showdown.

 

2. Oklahoma State Cowboys: +325 NCAAF Football Odds

It’s never a dull moment with Mike Gundy’s crew. The Cowboys (3-0 SU, 2-1 ATS) came into the new season with major distractions, both political and medical, but they’re on top of the Big 12 standings and in much better shape than Iowa State to challenge the Sooners for the title.

 

3. Iowa State Cyclones: +333 NCAAF Football Odds

This is a bit of a surprise. After dropping their season opener to UL-Lafayette as 13.5-point home favorites, the Cyclones (3-1 SU, 2-2 ATS) have won all three of their conference games. It could be just smoke and mirrors, though, given ISU’s plus-9 point differential after four games.

 

College Football Update: Big Ten

 

1. Ohio State Buckeyes: –400 NCAAF Football Odds

The Buckeyes were one of the teams who lobbied hardest to get the Big Ten back on the field – and no wonder. They might be the best team in the nation on paper, although they’re No. 6 in the polls for now. Ohio State’s 2020 season kicks off Saturday, October 24 (12 PM ET, FOX) at the Horseshoe against the Nebraska Cornhuskers.

 

2. Penn State Nittany Lions: +500 NCAAF Football Odds

No. 9 Penn State have given the Buckeyes more trouble recently than anyone else in the Big Ten. They’ll get to play Ohio State at home in Week 9, which could make all the difference this year, but first, the Lions have an October 24 date (3:30 PM ET, FS1) in Bloomington with the Indiana Hoosiers.

 

3. Wisconsin Badgers: +600 NCAAF Football Odds

Before anyone else in the Big Ten gets their feet wet, it’ll be the No. 16 Badgers hosting the Illinois Fighting Illini on Friday, October 23 (8 PM ET, BTN). They’re the cream of the West Division, but they’re one step behind Ohio State, losing the Big Ten title to the Buckeyes last year before falling to the Oregon Ducks in the Rose Bowl.

 

College Football Odds: Pac-12

 

1. Oregon Ducks: +180 NCAAF Football Odds

The Buckeyes were one of the teams who lobbied hardest to get the Big Ten back on the field – and no wonder. They might be the best team in the nation on paper, although they’re No. 6 in the polls for now. Ohio State’s 2020 season kicks off Saturday, October 24 (12 PM ET, FOX) at the Horseshoe against the Nebraska Cornhuskers.

 

2. Southern California Trojans: +200 NCAAF Football Odds

They’re the only other Pac-12 team in the polls at No. 25, but the Trojans closed the gap between themselves and Oregon when OL Alijah Vera-Tucker opted back into the 2020 campaign. The blue-chip NFL prospect returns to the gridiron November 7 (12 PM ET, FOX) when USC host the Arizona State Sun Devils.

 

3. Washington Huskies: +350 NCAAF Football Odds

Although they’re not in the Top 25 just yet, the Huskies may pose the biggest threat to Oregon’s Pac-12 title hunt. They’ll start their season November 7 with a road game against the California Golden Bears (time and network TBD), and they should have the advantage over the rest of the conference after most of their core players decided to form a pseudo-bubble in Seattle to continue training for fall football, just in case.
