Updated College Football Playoff Odds: SEC teams increasingly favored

New, comments

Money is breaking for Tide, ‘Dawgs

<p zoompage-fontsize="15" style="">Las Vegas

Two weeks ago, Vegas released its College Football Playoff odds. I was curious as to whether those lines had moved lately, and spoke with bookmaker Scott Cooley at Bookmaker.eu to get an update.

The money is moving in favor of the SEC teams, with both Alabama and Georgia’s spreads growing by a full point, and the money line has narrowed for the SEC. There’s been no movement either way on the totals, but more cash is breaking for a high-scoring OU-UGA game.

The action on Oklahoma’s money line has seen the Sooners overtake Georgia, but sharps are moving those two teams the same direction: essentially a tossup to lose to Alabama or Clemson. Clemson’s odds have narrowed as well -- meaning more buyers like what they see from Dabo’s squad.

One thing that has not changed? Alabama is still the prohibitive favorite to win its second College Football Playoff and 17th overall national title.

Updated Odds as of 12/27/17:

Opening Odds:

Georgia vs. Oklahoma (+1, 59)

Alabama vs. Clemson (+2, 47)
