Back-to-back champion Georgia Bulldogs open as 2023-24 favorites


The Georgia Bulldogs finished off a remarkable run of back-to-back College Football Playoff titles by routing TCU 65-7 as consensus 13.5-point favorites on Monday night. Georgia QB Stetson Bennett produced six total touchdowns and the game was pretty much over early in the second quarter.


TCU was a massive underdog coming into the game, including having odds of as high as 1,000-1 to win the College Football Playoff at sportsbooks at one point this season. One bettor at BetMGM had a $1,000 wager on TCU to win the title at 150-1 odds that came up short.

With the game well in hand, sportsbooks began opening odds on next year’s CFB Playoff title, and to no one’s surprise the Bulldogs opened as the favorites at multiple sportsbooks to make it a three-peat. Georgia opened as a +275 favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook.

The Alabama Crimson Tide (+500) and Ohio State Buckeyes (+800) opened with the next-best odds at DraftKings, and were the only two teams with better than 10-1 odds. Michigan (10-1), USC (14-1), Clemson (14-1) and LSU (18-1) rounded out the teams in the next tier.

Deion Sanders’ new team, the Colorado Buffaloes, opened with 200-1 odds to win the title.

Hawaii and UMass are among 11 teams with the longest odds (10,000-1) to win next year’s CFB Playoff.
