The 2021 college football season has seen plenty of chaos so far, and at the top of the board the two favorites have flipped places ahead of what might be two games against each other to determine a national champion.
The Georgia Bulldogs have been the most dominant team in the sport so far, and at 7-0 they have five more regular season games in which they’ll be at least double-digit favorites each time. To not play for the SEC Championship, they’d have to lose to two of Florida, Mizzou, and Tennessee over their next three games. So fans can safely make plans for Mercedes-Benz Stadium on December 4th.
The Dawgs will follow that with Charleston Southern and Georgia Tech, so it’s tough to find a spot where they could be tripped up before the postseason.
The Alabama Crimson Tide do have a loss at Texas A&M, but are still heavy favorites to face UGA in Atlanta. Tennessee, LSU, Arkansas, and Auburn are what’s left for the Crimson and Cream, plus New Mexico State as a Homecoming victim. But if they survive they’ll be in fine shape for chance to remove all doubt by winning an SEC Championship.
And while Cincinnati has a strong chance to be the first team from a Group of Five conference to play in a CFP semifinal, the bettors don’t give them much of a chance to win it all. You’ll get $25 for each one you bet on the Bearcats to walk away with the trophy.
