College Football Playoff Matchups Released – Odds/Reaction

No comments

So, there it is. This was predictable after the games last night. There was no other option besides Oklahoma at 4. They were easily the best one loss team. I had a slight argument for Georgia but that slowly faded watching them play in last night’s SEC Championship loss to LSU.

The odds

I thought LSU would open closer to -9.5 but it didn’t shock me to see them a bit higher. Their offense is so good. Joe Brady has Burrow and co. playing like a pro style style juggernaut.

Clemson opens as a 2 point favorite against Ohio State. Trevor Lawrence and Clemson beat up on Virginia in the ACC Championship, 62-17. Ohio State struggled early against Wisconsin, but pulled away late and won the Big Ten Championship by a score of 34-21.

Two headlines I’ll leave you with

  • How will Oklahoma’s 82nd ranked defense stack up against Joe Burrow and LSU’s top rated, pro-style offense?
  • Will Ohio State’s tough schedule prepare them for the matchup against Clemson, a team that has played ONE ranked team all season long?

I will release a pick-em podcast for these games and NFL Week 15 next Thursday or Friday.

Let me know in the comments who you think has the best shot to win it all.
