College Football Conference Championships Highlight Big Weekend Of Football Betting

While Week 13 of the NFL season represents an important “pull-away” point for the league’s division leaders and has plenty of bearing on how the NFL Playoffs are likely to shape up, it’s actually not the biggest draw for this weekend’s slate of football action.

That honor actually falls to the NCAA, as each conference championship will be contested for the 2021 college football season.

While we don’t have too many touts for you on the college football betting side (we have more insight into the professional game), we do have a few thoughts worth considering. You can find those under the relevant matchups listed below:

2021 College Football Conference Championship Odds

Via Bovada Sportsbook

2021 C-USA Championship – Western Kentucky at UTSA

  • Straight: Western Kentucky -160, UTSA +135
  • Spread: Western Kentucky -3.5
  • Over/Under: 73.0

2021 Pac-12 Championship – (10) Oregon vs. (17) Utah

  • Straight: Oregon +115, Utah -135
  • Spread: Utah -2.5
  • Over/Under: 58.0

2021 Big 12 Championship – (9) Baylor vs. (5) Oklahoma State

  • Straight: Baylor +185, Oklahoma State -225
  • Spread: Oklahoma State -6.0
  • Over/Under: 46.5

Oklahoma State needs a win to have a prayer of getting in the 2021 College Football Playoff, so expect them to come out swinging. That said, Baylor’s no pushover, and the spread might be a little high. OSU by three.

2021 MAC Championship – Kent State vs. Northern Illinois

  • Straight: Kent State -150, Northern Illinois +130
  • Spread: Kent State -3.5
  • Over/Under: 75.0

2021 Mountain West Championship – Utah State at (19) San Diego State

  • Straight: Utah State +190, San Diego State -230
  • Spread: San Diego State -6.0
  • Over/Under: 50.0

2021 Sun Belt Championship – Appalachian State at (24) Louisiana

  • Straight: Appalachian State -140, Louisiana +120
  • Spread: Appalachian State -3.0
  • Over/Under: 52.5

This one seems about right. App State has a reputation for beating ranked teams in big games. They should cover the spread.

2021 AAC Championship – (21) Houston at (4) Cincinnati

  • Straight: Houston +300, Cincinnati -395
  • Spread: Cincinnati -10.5
  • Over/Under: 53.0

Cincy has to win to maintain its chances to make the CFP. And they should win. Still, the payout straight up is pretty weak, so take the Bearcats to cover.

2021 SEC Championship – (1) Georgia vs. (3) Alabama

  • Straight: Georgia -240, Alabama +200
  • Spread: Georgia -6.5
  • Over/Under: 49.5

Georgia all day. This isn’t the Alabama you remember. They’re good, but they’ve had some squeakers this year and seem to be outmatched by the Bulldogs on both sides of the ball.

Of course, Crimson Tide QB Bryce Young isn’t just playing for a CFP berth. If Bama wins, he’ll be (almost) a lock for the 2021 Heisman Trophy.

2021 SWAC Championship – Prairie View at Jackson State

  • Straight: Prairie View +240, Jackson State -290
  • Spread: Jackson State -7.0
  • Over/Under: 43.5

2021 ACC Championship – (15) Pitt vs. (16) Wake Forest

  • Straight: Wake Forest +135, Pitt -160
  • Spread: Pitt -3.5
  • Over/Under: 71.5

You know what? We’re taking Wake Forest to win the ACC title. This is a solid team with some real swagger.

2021 Big Ten Championship – (2) Michigan vs. (13) Iowa

  • Straight: Michigan -430, Iowa +320
  • Spread: Michigan -11.0
  • Over/Under: 43.5

Put $10 on the upset here, if for no other reason than the payout’s nice at +320 and the top four could use a shocker to mix things up in the last week of the season. Notre Dame will be watching with considerable interest.

Vikes to cover.

New York Giants at Miami Dolphins

Never bet on the Dolphins.

Philadelphia Eagles at New York Jets

Neither team can ever be trusted.

Falcons to cover (but Bucs to win).

  • Straight: Jaguars +505, Rams -655
  • Spread: Rams -13.0
  • Over/Under: 48.0

Jaguars for the massive upset. LOL.

Washington Football Team at Las Vegas Raiders

  • Straight: Football Team +100, Raiders -120
  • Spread: Raiders -1.0
  • Over/Under: 49.0

WTF, go with WFT outright.

Baltimore Ravens at Pittsburgh Steelers

  • Straight: Ravens -210, Steelers +180
  • Spread: Ravens -4.5
  • Over/Under: 44.0

Lamar Jackson is the most overrated player in the league, but the Steelers are 5-5-1. This game is anyone’s guess.

San Francisco 49ers at Seattle Seahawks

  • Straight: 49ers -170, Seahawks +150
  • Spread: 49ers -3.0
  • Over/Under: 45.5

No thanks.

Denver Broncos at Kansas City Chiefs

  • Straight: Broncos +330, Chiefs -410
  • Spread: Chiefs -10.0
  • Over/Under: 47.0

Chiefs to cover. Mahomes seems due for a 4 TD, 450-yard eruption.

New England Patriots at Buffalo Bills

  • Straight: Patriots +117, Bills -137
  • Spread: Bills -2.5
  • Over/Under: 42.5

We’re not touching this one.
