How To Bet on the CFP?

When looking at a sportsbook’s college football lines, you’ll find that the betting lines are presented something like this:

ALAAlabama Crimson Tide+225
UGAGeorgia Bulldogs+475

The Crimson Tide of Alabama is the heavy favorite going into the event since their odds are the lowest. The underdogs in this are the Bulldogs. If you think that Alabama has the best chance of winning the championship, and you bet $100 on them, you will receive a payout of $325 in total.

This includes your original wager of $100 and your winnings of $225. On the other hand, if you are looking at Georgia and believe they will win it all, then investing the same $100 would offer you $575 if they win.

It’s in your best interest to act quickly if you come into odds that appeal to you. As with other tournaments, online betting operators will change the NCAAF odds as bowl season draws nearer, and teams climb and fall in the rankings. This can sometimes affect the College Football National Championship spread as well.

College Football Playoffs National Championship

The College Football National Championship was developed as a championship trophy because authorities wanted a new award unrelated to the previous BCS championship system. Ohio State won the first match, which took place in January 2015 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

The College Football National Championship’s neutral location is chosen via bids from potential host cities (similar to the Super Bowl and the NCAA Final Four). The College Football Playoff National Championship Trophy, sponsored by Dr. Pepper, is given to the winner.

Betting History of The CFP National Championship

The NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision, which started competition in the 2014 college football season, holds the College Football Playoff National Championship to crown a national champion. It serves as the championship of the College Football Playoff, a bracket tournament featuring the top four teams in the nation as determined during the regular season. The NCAAF National Championship Playoff was created as a replacement for the Bowl Championship Series and its equivalent BCS National Championship Game.

A yearly cycle of bowls, known as the New Year’s Six, hosts two semifinal games frequently referred to as the “Plus-One System,” which selects which teams will compete in the College Football Playoff National Championship. Because of this, unlike the BCS National Championship Game, the teams who will play in the final are not chosen by a selection committee.
