NCAA Football Playoffs Betting

The usual suspects are the favorites to win the 2022 CFP National Championship. Alabama, Ohio State, and Georgia are all 5-1 or less to win the title this year, and the only other team that is less than 20-1 is Clemson. Everyone else is considered a longshot though as the Crimson Tide, Buckeyes, and Bulldogs are considered the cream of the crop.

College Football Playoff Format

Over the last several weeks of the regular season, the College Football Playoff Selection Committee gets together and votes on its Top 25. The committee is tasked with ultimately choosing the best four teams in America to play against each other.

The locations of the national semifinals move every season. The Cotton Bowl and Orange Bowl are tied together, the Rose Bowl and Sugar Bowl are tied together, and the Peach Bowl and Fiesta Bowl are paired together. Once every three years one of those pairs hosts the national semifinals, and they play home to the Selection Committee bowl games in the other two seasons.

Two programs have stood above the rest when it comes to college football in the CFP era. Alabama and Clemson have clearly been the two elite programs in the nation, although the Tigers had a down year in 2021. These two schools have combined to win five of the last seven national championships, and each school has twice as many CFP wins as the next closest schools.

Ohio State and Georgia have had some success too. The Buckeyes won the inaugural CFP by upsetting Alabama and Oregon, and they reached the title game in 2020 before losing to Alabama. Meanwhile, the Bulldogs lost an absolute heartbreaker to the Crimson Tide in 2017 but wiped away four decades of pain in 2021 by hammering Michigan and then knocking off Alabama on their way to their first national championship since 1980.

The Oklahoma Sooners have made it to the College Football Playoff four times, but they have yet to win a game in the CFP. Oklahoma lost in double overtime to Georgia in the Rose Bowl in 2017, and that was the closest the Sooners have come to a win. Their other three losses have been by double digits.

Alabama is the most successful team in the modern era of college football. The Crimson Tide have been dominant since Nick Saban came to Tuscaloosa, and he has led the program to six national championships. That has led to Alabama putting distance between itself and other powers like Notre Dame, USC, Oklahoma, and Ohio State.

While Notre Dame was once a national power, the Fighting Irish have only been somewhat competitive over the last three decades. They haven’t won a national championship since Tony Rice led the Fighting Irish to a title in 1988, and they were flattened when they faced elite teams in the Brian Kelly era.
