Opening odds for every 2020-2021 college football bowl game

College football is announcing bowl game matchups and that means we have early odds. We’ll post them as they arrive.

Bowl season is upon us! It’s been a stop and start college football season, but we’ve made it through conference championship weekend and into something that is going to resemble the bowl season.

Numerous schools are electing to stay home from bowl games this year and that has resulted in several bowl games getting canceled. But we do know that for the time being, the New Years Six games and the College Football Playoff will all happen.

What will happen over the next three weeks in college football? No one knows, but it probably won’t be any less wild than the previous 16 weeks. As bowl game matchups are being announced, we’re starting to get point spreads and totals for the games. These numbers start out as a mix of Circa Sports and DraftKings Sportsbook lines. We’ll update as more lines arrive.
