2022 NCAAF Championship Odds
Georgia overwhelming favorite
The Georgia Bulldogs wrapped up a perfect season on November 27 with a 45-0 trouncing of Georgia Tech. With that, the team heads into the conference title game weekend, where the Bulldogs face the Alabama Crimson Tide, as enormous favorites to claim the 2022 NCAAF National Championship. The only team that came close to Georgia was Clemson in Week 1 and Georgia won that contest 10-3. After that, the Bulldogs did not score fewer than 30 points in a game.

Georgia should secure the No. 1 seed in the playoff this weekend as the team is favored by 6.5 over the Alabama Crimson Tide.
Alabama are the defending champs
Alabama’s hopes on repeating as national champs might come down to Saturday’s game against Georgia. If the Crimson Tide lose to the Bulldogs, the team will have two losses on the season — they dropped a 41-38 game to Texas A&M on October 9. No team with two losses has ever made the NCAAF Championship playoffs. Alabama must win against Georgia and the odds are not on their side as the team is a +200 underdog in that matchup.

Michigan has momentum
The Michigan Wolverines might have the most momentum of any NCAAF team right now. Michigan is coming off a huge 42-27 win over Ohio State. That win ended an eight-game losing skid against the Buckeyes.
That's four (4) TDs for Hassan Haskins. 🙌

Michigan faces Iowa in the Big Ten championship and the Michigan club is favored to win that game at -430. The spread is currently -11. A win will move Michigan into the playoffs for the first time. If Michigan and Georgia both move on, the seeding will be very important. In short, the Wolverines will want to avoid Georgia in the semis.
Cincinnati and Oklahoma State are longshots
The Cincinnati Bearcats will need a win over Houston in the AAC title game and a Georgia win to make it into the playoffs. Oklahoma State is in a similar position. They need a victory over Baylor in the Big 12 championship game and an Alabama loss to make it into the playoffs.
Cincinnati is favored over Houston and Oklahoma State is favored over Baylor, so there is a chance the clubs will make the playoffs, but making the playoffs and winning the championship are two very different things.
