We are now just four days away from the College Football Playoff, and the betting market is beginning to clear up.

New Year’s Eve has become one of the most exciting nights in college football ever since the start of the CFP. It marks the night we find out who will play for the National Championship.

Michigan and TCU will kick things off at 4 p.m. ET, quickly followed by Georgia and Ohio State at 8 p.m. ET.

Michigan opened as a 9.5-point favorite, and the line is currently at Michigan -7.5 as of Tuesday afternoon.

The Wolverines are getting 68% of the bets and account for 64% of the handle according to BetMGM. TCU is getting a little bit more money than bets at this point.

The total is relatively balanced as well. The over is getting 60% of the tickets and 56% of the money.

Georgia vs. Ohio State Odds

Georgia -6.5
Ohio State +6.5
Total  58.5
Date Saturday, Dec. 31

There hasn’t been as much line movement on the other matchup as Georgia is a popular bet. The line has moved across a key number from Georgia -7 to Georgia -6.5.

But the public is heavily favoring the Bulldogs. Georgia is getting 84% of the bets and 85% of the handle. However, that hasn’t scared books from moving the spread in the other direction.

The total has some interesting splits. The over is getting 69% of the tickets and accounts for 82% of the money. That’s a pretty significant amount of money.
