Early College Football Conference Championship Game Bets To Place

Championship weekend is rapidly approaching, and four title game matchups were already locked in entering the final weekend of the regular season. These lines are prone to movement, so it’s worth diving into some of the early best bets.

Let’s take a look at the early odds for championship weekend and which bets are worth locking in right now.

Florida State (-4.5) vs. Louisville

This line hinges heavily on Florida State’s game against Florida this weekend, with so much uncertainty regarding Seminoles backup QB Tate Rodemaker.

Rodemaker has been in Mike Norvell’s system for four years, looked confident against North Alabama after entering the game in a hole, and has an impressive set of weapons. Florida State should be able to beat a flailing Florida team on talent alone, even with Jordan Travis out. That would undoubtedly restore some confidence in the Seminoles ahead of the ACC title game.

Louisville doesn’t quite stand up at Florida State’s talent level, though the Cardinals are well-coached. Louisville didn’t face FSU, Clemson, or North Carolina this season and hasn’t won by more than a touchdown away from home, a set of games that includes a bizarre loss to Pitt.

This isn’t necessarily a straight road game, but whether Louisville can hang with Florida State away from home is a major question mark. I’m taking Seminoles -4.5 before oddsmakers gain back some confidence in Norvell’s squad.

Georgia (-4.5) vs. Alabama

This line won’t move quite as much as the ACC’s, in all likelihood, but it’s tough to see Georgia ending up favored by anything less than the current spread of 4-5 points. The Bulldogs have officially hit their stride in these last few weeks and should be able to stomp Georgia Tech on Saturday as long as they’re not spending too much time looking ahead.

Alabama has an interesting matchup. The Crimson Tide should roll right past rival Auburn, considering the Tigers lost to New Mexico State last weekend, but Jordan-Hare Stadium seems to give even the best Alabama teams a real challenge. Bryce Young’s Heisman campaign was nearly derailed in 2021 against a stout Auburn defense in a game no one expected to be close, and it will be interesting to watch how Jalen Milroe handles the environment.

A closer-than-anticipated game could build some more confidence in favored Georgia ahead of the SEC title game.

New Mexico State (+11) vs. Liberty

It’s fair to be skeptical about whether this line will move much – New Mexico State likely can’t do a whole lot more to build confidence after a win at Auburn – but the Aggies’ recent stretch of success is tough to ignore.

Under former Minnesota coach Jerry Kill, New Mexico State lost three of its first five games and then rattled off seven consecutive wins. The Aggies allowed more than 17 points only twice during the win streak, showing marked improvement defensively. The win against a tough Auburn defense was a reminder that Diego Pavia and the offense can carry some weight as well, showing no intimidation in a tough environment.

With New Mexico State playing its share of low-scoring games, an 11-point spread might be a bit of a stretch even with Liberty’s track record. The unbeaten Flames haven’t been perfect on the defensive end, but they have relied on a powerful offense to get the job done. So far, it has, but New Mexico State has come a long way since it lost 33-17 at Liberty in early September.

This battle for the CUSA title should be won by Liberty, but New Mexico State’s defense can keep the game within reach.

Miami [OH] (+8.5) vs. Toledo

Miami (Ohio) enters the MAC title game as underdogs by more than a touchdown, but the RedHawks’ defense might make it tough for Toledo to pull away.

Miami held Toledo to 21 points when they met in the regular season, and containing the Rockets’ running game was the biggest factor. Peny Boone was held to less than 100 yards (73), one of two games in which Boone totaled less than 100 yards on the ground over his last 10 contests. The RedHawks are allowing only 3.4 yards per carry this season, so keeping Toledo’s rushing attack in check and putting pressure on DeQuan Finn to win with his arm could absolutely be sustainable.

Miami has shut out two opponents this season, held another to three points, and had Buffalo’s offense struggling for air just last week. Another strong defensive performance against Ball State this weekend would reinforce that the final MACtion of the season can be a low-scoring affair and narrow this line just a bit. Miami (OH) +8.5 is a nice early play.
