2019 NCAA Football Conference Championship Games Odds & Picks

College Football Conference Championship Games betting Analysis and Odds

This is one of the busiest periods for US betting sites. The sundry NCAA football conferences are setting the stage to crown their champions this weekend. Understandably, business is booming for the best online sportsbooks. You can too reap the benefits of all this turmoil. As the saying goes, there is good fishing in troubled waters.

Pac 12 championship

• December 6
• 5:00 p.m. PT
• Levi’s Stadium, Santa Clara, CA

Team SP/RL TOTAL ML
Oregon +6½ (-110) 47 (-110) +200
Utah -6½ (-110) 47 (-110) -240

It’s very simple. If the Utes want to have a prayer at making the College Football Playoff, they must beat the Ducks. And not just beat them. They have to crucify them. Utah has the motivation to more than cover the spread set by US betting sites.

MAC Championship

• December 7
• 12:00 p.m. ET
• Ford Field, Detroit, MI

Team SP/RL TOTAL ML
Miami Ohio +7 (-115) 54 (-110) +210
Central Michigan -7 (-105) 54 (-110) -250
Bet Now on this Game

Miami Ohio ended the regular season averaging more points against (28.8) than points for (24.6). That doesn’t bode well for their chances. Central Michigan outscored opponents 142-61 in their last three games. Take the Chippewas and the points.

Conference USA Championship

• December 7
• 1:30 p.m. ET
• FAU Stadium, Boca Raton, FL

Team SP/RL TOTAL ML
UAB -7½ (-110) 50 (-110) -280
Florida Atlantic -6½ (-110) 47 (-110) -240
Bet Now on this Game

The Blazers 15th-ranking scoring defense allows just 18.5 points per game. As a matter of fact, UAB has allowed more than 21 points on only two occasions – both losses. I have a hunch the Blazers’ tight defense will keep it closer than the 7.5 points projected by US betting sites.

American Atlantic Championship

• December 7
• 3:30 p.m. ET
• Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium, Memphis, TN

Team SP/RL TOTAL ML
Cincinnati U +9½ (-110) 57½ (-110) +285
Memphis -9½ (-110) 57½ (-110) -345
Bet Now on this Game

This is a rematch of the two schools’ regular season finale. Memphis won 34-24, but as a 14-point home favorite, did not cover. The Tigers will once again face the Bearcats as favorites, as well as have home advantage. I think the adjustment from 14 to 9.5 points will allow Memphis to get the ATS win the second time around.

SEC Championship

• December 7
• 3:00 p.m. CT
• Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Atlanta, GA

Team SP/RL TOTAL ML
Georgia +7½ (-120) 54½ (-110) +240
LSU -7½ (EV) 54½ (-110) -280
Bet Now on this Game

This is the proverbial irresistible force versus the unmovable object. The Tigers have the second-best scoring offense in the country (48.7 points per game). And the Bulldogs have the second-best scoring defense (10.4 points allowed per game). LSU scored 164 combined points in their last three games. And Georgia has allowed a total of just 34 points in their own last three games. However, the Tigers defense has been progressively improving in that same period. LSU conceded Ole Miss 37 points, surrendered 20 to Arkansas, and held TAMU to seven. That improvement will be key to LSU covering.

ACC Championship

• December 7
• 7:30 p.m. ET
• Bank of America Stadium, Charlotte, NC

Team SP/RL TOTAL ML
Virginia +28 (-110) 55 (-110) +2500
Clemson -28 (-110) 55 (-110) -5000
Bet Now on this Game

Twenty nine points seem like too many for a conference championship game. Then again, this is Clemson, which has covered three straight and six of the last seven. Make that four straight on Saturday.

Big 12 Championship

• December 7
• 11:00 a.m. CT
• AT&T Stadium, Arlington, TX

Team SP/RL TOTAL ML
Baylor +9 (-110) 64½ (-110) +260
Oklahoma -9 (-110) 64½ (-110) -320
Bet Now on this Game

Oklahoma’s 2-6 ATS record in their last eight games is traceable to their dubious offense. The Sooners ranked 52nd in points allowed per game (24.7). Baylor may not win this one outright, but will most likely remain within the 8.5-point spread.

Big Ten Championship

• December 7
• 8:00 p.m. CT
• Lucas Oil Stadium, Indianapolis, IN

Team SP/RL TOTAL ML
Wisconsin +16 (-110) 56½ (-110) +525
Ohio State -16 (-110) 56½ (-110) -750
Bet Now on this Game

As far as I’m concerned, the Buckeyes can do no wrong. Take OSU and the points.
