Odds to Make the 2021-22 College Football Playoff
BetMGM released odds for 36 teams to crack this year’s College Football Playoff – a postseason reserved for only the nation’s top four clubs.
So far, bettors are banking on a pair of popular programs just mere days out from the regular season.
High Expectations for Michigan, Notre Dame
The largest handle belongs to a team yet to break through during the Playoff era: Michigan, at a 32.7% hold.
The Wolverines have dropped at least three games in all six seasons under Jim Harbaugh, who’s nabbed as many wins over Ohio State as you and I have.
The Pac-12 hasn’t sent a team to the Playoff since 2016. How can bettors get the best bang for their buck in this conference?
Oregon and Washington are both extremely short at 6-1, and nobody is flocking to USC: The blue-blood hasn’t garnered a single wager at the book.
How’s Utah sound for a sleeper?
The Utes have only received 2.9% of tickets. But due to the 25-1 payout, Utah making the Playoff would be the third-worst outcome for the book.
Busting down the Playoff barrier would more than likely require long-tenured head coach Kyle Whittingham to also pocket his first Pac-12 title.
It’s a true long shot, but at least Utah has been profitable over the course of the regular season. The Utes have covered 55.4% of their games since Whittingham took over in 2011, which ranks top-15 among FBS programs over that span.
