College Football Bowl Games, Playoff Odds, Opening Lines, Early Values


What are the early college football lines and odds for the bowl games and college football playoffs? Where are the possible values?

College football bowl game odds, opening lines

Trying to figure out the lines for the bowl games is next to impossible as early as possible.

Who plays? Which stars are leaving, which coaches are leaving, who takes care of the shows? Which players – like likely Caleb Williams – will be out?

On the bright side, if you get it right, you can break the value before the lines change – because they’re going to change and wildly over the next few weeks.

Just like the regular season, I figure out what I think the lines should likely be and then go in and see if there could be any massive discrepancies.

The real rows will be added as they are published.
