NCAAF Future Bets to Make

August 23, 2022

National championship futures: Oklahoma 8-to-1 (BetMGM) and Georgia 10-to-1 (Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook)

Let’s corner the market on second-tier championship contenders. Alabama, Clemson and Ohio State sit as the consensus favorites to win the College Football Playoff, with Georgia and Oklahoma trailing closely behind. That’s mostly based on history, though, and not reflective of this season’s reality.

Georgia and Oklahoma enter the season with the most proven and complete rosters in the nation. They’re each led by Heisman Trophy favorites at quarterback—J.T. Daniels for the Bulldogs and Spencer Rattler for the Sooners—who are surrounded by returnees at the skill positions.

And those teams’ defenses might be even better than their offenses. Oklahoma made huge defensive strides last year, finishing ninth in the nation by Football Outsiders’ F/+ ratings, and returns virtually everyone. Georgia doesn’t have quite as many veterans, but no program in the nation, not even Alabama, has recruited more blue-chip defensive prospects than the Bulldogs the past few years.

The Crimson Tide, Tigers and Buckeyes have combined to win six of the seven titles since the advent of the College Football Playoff, but there should be a new team joining the title ranks this season.

Conference championship future: Washington +550 to win Pac-12 (SuperBook)

No conference demonstrated the strangeness of last year’s college football season better than the Pac-12. Oregon, which didn’t even win the conference’s North Division, became Pac-12 champion when Washington had to pull out of the title game due to a COVID-19 outbreak.

A poetic inverse could happen this season: The Ducks might be the best team in the conference, but the Huskies are better positioned to win the title. Oregon is loaded with talent, but its conference schedule is formidable, including road trips to UCLA, Utah and, most importantly, Washington on November 6.

Washington, on the other hand, doesn’t have a single road game in which it will be favored by less than seven points. With a quiet bulldozer of a team that outgained opponents by one net yard per play last season, the Huskies should earn the trophy they deserved in 2020.

Heisman Trophy future: Ohio State quarterback C.J. Stroud 16-to-1 (BetMGM)

No quarterback in the nation has a better set of receivers and a weaker slate of opposing defenses on the schedule than the Buckeyes’ five-star freshman.

Stroud is poised to put up outrageous numbers for one of college football’s glamour programs, a combination Heisman voters can never ignore. Sure, he might not be the only one who fits that description—with Rattler, Daniels, Alabama’s Bryce Young and Clemson’s D.J. Uiagalelei also set up for similar success—but all their odds have adjusted accordingly and mostly toppled down below 10-to-1. Stroud is the one who’s still sitting at a value price.

Win Total: Coastal Carolina under 10.5 wins -135 (SuperBook)

The Chanticleers were one of the biggest stories of the 2020 season with their undefeated regular season, but don’t expect an encore. During the memorable run, Coastal Carolina went an unsustainable 4-0 in games decided by single digits. Almost every team in the Sun Belt Conference looks better this season, making the Chanticleers’ schedule tougher than it might appear at first glance.

It’s traditionally a profitable tactic to fade a team that made a drastic one-year leap in the following season, and Coastal Carolina offers the best opportunity to do that this season.
