College Football Playoffs: Bama, Clemson, Welcome Oklahoma and Notre Dame

Monday, 24 December 2018 / Published in Bookie Tips

The four best teams in college football battle it out on Saturday, Dec. 29 for the right to go to the College Football National Championship. #1 Alabama takes on #4 Oklahoma while #2 Clemson battles #3 Notre Dame.
Although the NFL has another week left, pay per head agents should promote action on the Cotton Bowl Classic, where Clemson and Notre Dame battle, and the Orange Bowl, where Alabama and Oklahoma throw down.
Below, we highlight each team in this season’s College Football Playoff. We also discuss how bookies should use their per head software to manage action on participating teams.

College Football National Championship

Alabama Crimson Tide                    -200

Once again the Alabama Crimson Tide grabbed a spot in the College Football Playoff. Since the first ever College Football Playoff back in 2015, the Tide has been a yearly participant. No CFP has ever been played without Alabama’s presence.

This year’s Alabama squad won differently than past season’s Alabama squads. The Crimson Tide won most of their games behind a stunningly impressive offense, one that averaged 50 points or more for most of the season.

Heisman Trophy candidate Tua Tagovailoa was great, but after he got hurt in the SEC Championship, Jalen Hurts came in to close the deal. Nick Saban has two quarterbacks he can lean on and the defense is pretty good. Any bookie who wants to take Bama off the board at -200 gets our blessing because the Tide looks strong to repeat as National Champions.

Clemson Tigers                                 +280

Clemson coach Dabo Sweeney decided to go with freshman quarterback Trevor Lawrence early on in the season. That, more than anything, is why the Tigers are in the 2018 College Football Playoff. Clemson beat the Crimson tide and won the National Championship in 2016. Deshaun Watson was fantastic in that game.

Lawrence, should Clemson face Alabama in the National Championship, must have a similar game to what Deshaun had for the Tigers to beat the Crimson Tide. Clemson’s biggest issue on defense is their secondary. If the defensive line doesn’t get pressure, the secondary can give up big plays.

That could make it tough on Clemson to win the National Championship. Bookies might want to roll the dice and allow as many bets as possible on the Tigers to beat Notre Dame on Dec. 29 and then take down Oklahoma or Alabama in the title game.

Notre Dame Fighting Irish               +1100

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are a legit contender even though they didn’t win a conference championship. The Irish are an Independent, like Army, and don’t play in any conference. Coach Brian Kelly’s a master at preparing his team, though.

Kelly will know exactly what his team must do to stay competitive until late in the fourth quarter versus Clemson on Saturday. If Kelly and the Fighting Irish pull off the upset, who’s to say they don’t pull off the upset against Alabama or Oklahoma.

Per head agents must make sure max betting limits are on Notre Dame to win the trophy.

Oklahoma Sooners                            +1100

Oklahoma might have the greatest offense in the history of college football. It’s better than any of Oregon’s offenses because Oklahoma averaged 49 points per game against solid Big 12 opponents. The Heisman Trophy winner, quarterback Kyler Murray, plays for the Sooners while the defense looked great against Texas in the Big 12 Championship.

Oklahoma’s for real. The Sooners will challenge Alabama. Agents must use pay per head software to manage betting on Oklahoma to win the title.
