The college football playoffs are ready to go! The match-ups, game times, and early Las Vegas odds were revealed on Sunday afternoon for the 2020-21 college football playoffs. Also, a major change to the schedule seems to be in order.
College Football Playoffs
The CFP will feature two great games. Clemson will take on Ohio State in the Sugar Bowl while No. 1 Alabama will face-off against No. 4 ranked Notre Dame in the Rose Bowl. Well, kind of the Rose Bowl.
According to ESPN, the Rose Bowl has been moved to AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
According to the release, the decision to move the game was based on the growing number of COVID-19 cases in California. Also, the inability for families of the players and coaches to attend because of state restrictions during the pandemic.
Early odds for the two big games have been revealed and already the money is rolling in on Alabama.
William Hill opened with Alabama -17.5 vs. Notre Dame while the Tigers are listed as 6.5 point favorites against the Buckeyes. Since the odds went public, some sportsbooks have the Tide listed at 19 point favorites with Bet Wynn having the largest spread at -20.
The Bama spread seems quite generous, however, the Tide have been rolling under Mac Jones the last month. One thing is for sure, the Irish defense will have their work cut out for them.
