The College Football Playoff is set to open doors. For one, two more teams will squeeze their way into the party, drink all your beer and eat all your quality food and then be told to leave.
In the world of gamblin’, such changes will also impact how you, Joe Degenerate, can wager. The national championship prices will certainly undergo some changes, while a more direct bet for the playoff is already available on the online book 5Dimes.
It’s simple, really. Will a team make the four-team playoff next year?
To get the ball rolling, 5Dimes has released odds on the following teams.
The Seminoles are the biggest chalk to make the playoff. Given the conference and the schedule, the rest isn’t exactly a surprise. Alabama has even odds on both sides, while the rest of the teams are favored not the postseason.
(For the record, Oregon +160 to make the playoff looks like the juiciest bet on the board, but it is February.)
