College football kicks off this Thursday with a bevy of games. But before the season kicks off make sure you bet on these four sure-win future bets.
Top 4 College Football Futures To Bet On
1. Baylor makes 4 team playoff +400
Baylor returns 9 starters on defense including all 4 starters in the secondary. The best player on Baylor’s defense that returns is All- American Shawn Oakman. Oakman recorded 11 sacks and 19.5 tackles for a loss in 2014. He might be even better this season and is garnering raves from football analysts that compare him to Ndamukong Suh and J.J. Watt. Oakman should be able to roam free because the rest of the line is great as well. The offense replaced Bryce Petty with Seth Russell who is more of a running threat than Petty was. This team is loaded and should make the College Football Playoffs this season.
2. Two teams from same conference in playoff +325
There are a couple of ways for this to happen. The first way is for Alabama and Auburn to play each other in the Iron Bowl as undefeated teams. The schedules for both teams, Alabama starts the season by battling Wisconsin while Auburn plays Louisville, Mississippi State and LSU in 3 out of their first 4, means that if both teams are undefeated, they no doubt will be ranked in the Top 4 to get to the College Football Playoff when they meet in the Iron Bowl. If the game is tight, the Selection Committee might reward both teams with College Football Playoff berths.
The other way for this to happen is if TCU and Baylor meet while both being undefeated. Those 2 could make the College Football Playoff if both are very impressive with the only blemish being a loss to their biggest rival in the Big 12 this season.
3. Notre Dame makes 4 team playoff +600
The odds are stunning on the best team that Brian Kelly has ever had at Notre Dame to make the 4 team playoff. Notre Dame returns Sheldon Day, Jaylon Smith and MVP linebacker Joe Smith to a defense that goes along with a very good defensive backfield. Notre Dame’s offense will be better with Malik Zaire playing quarterback than it was with Everett Golson. Although odds have not been listed for Zaire to win the Heisman Trophy, rest assured that under Kelly’s tutelage Zaire is going to put up huge numbers this season.
4. Boise State plays in New Year’s 6 -120
The Broncos return 17 starters including 9 on offense. They have to replace their quarterback and running back, but luckily for them, the offensive line doesn’t have to be replaced and the defense is so solid that it’s doubtful that Boise State loses more than 1 game during the regular season. An undefeated Boise State could be difficult to keep out of the College Football Playoff. More importantly, it’s going to be hard to keep Boise State from playing on New Year’s Day.
