The College Football Playoff gets underway on Friday with Cincinnati taking on Alabama in the Cotton Bowl at 3:30 p.m. ET, followed by Georgia vs. Michigan in the Orange Bowl at 7:30 p.m. ET.

While both of these games will obviously attract massive TV ratings and huge betting handles, that doesn’t necessarily mean that each one is offering value.

In fact, as of the time of writing it’s clear that wiseguys have already taken a market-moving position on Cincinnati vs. Alabama, while Georgia vs. Michigan isn’t all that interesting from solely a value betting perspective.

So let’s go ahead and break down the sharp side of Cincinnati vs. Alabama in Friday afternoon’s Cotton Bowl.
