    Alabama 10.5 (-140 over)
    Clemson 11.5 (-140 over)
    Florida 10 (-135 over)
    Georgia 10 (-125 under)
    LSU 9 (-130 under)
    Michigan 9 (-115 over)
    Notre Dame 9 (-115 under)
    Ohio State 11 (-135 over)
    Oklahoma 10 (-200 under)
    Oregon 9.5 (-130 over)
    USC 8 (-130 over)

    Clemson's season-win total opened at 11.5 at Caesars Sportsbook, with the vigorish tilted toward the over, meaning the Tigers are favored to complete a third straight unbeaten regular season. Clemson's win total is the highest in the nation.

    With quarterback Trevor Lawrence and running back Travis Etienne returning -- and a seemingly smoother path through conference play than other contenders -- the Tigers also have emerged as the consensus favorites to win the national championship. At DraftKings' sportsbook, more bets have been placed on Clemson to win the national championship than have been bet on any other team.

    I'll throw it out there....Maybe the smart play is to take the under on all in case of a shortened season? If they would pay it out.

    No spring practice (of course, in certain conferences things might be proceeding under cover of dome). X schools with new coaches and schemes that won't have a real chance to gel. Patsy early season "matchups" certainly the ones to drop off schedules ...

    They wouldn't. House rules for CFB aways require a whole regular season

    Saw dabo’s take on a full season being played. You bet’cha. he says. :)
    Other coaches said without practice in July (group gathering) there is no way :nono: to be ready for opening
    games. :cry:
    Dabo said that’s just the way that he looks at things....in the positive light. hmmmm :whistle: like if we just close our eyes it’ll be better when we refocus.
    Ok. Good as any. :wave: Yet another undefeated regular season against who again? :ssst:
     
    Hopefully, finally !!!

    At least a few schools got some spring practice in before the shutdown.

    Yes, some. But at what value now, really?

    Hell I’m just hopeful there will be a season.

    Bash on Clemson’s schedule all you want- the rest of the ACC sucks but they’ve taken down both Alabama and Ohio State multiple times in the playoff era. Clemson & Alabama are 1a & 1b until someone else does it every single year.

    Yep. As much as a lot of us -- :) -- say the ACC is foreplay for Clemson going to the CFP, they deliver when they're there.

    I don't know. What value do teams normally get out of spring practice? I would imagine the teams that got some spring practice in will get just as much benefit from those practices as they would in a normal year. Assuming there's actually a season.

    At Notre Dame November 7 could be fun, otherwise they will win every game by 21+

    You're correct...Georgia for example has a new offensive coordinator with a totally different approach than what has been run in the past, along with a transfer QB from Wake Forrest expected to be the starter, throwing to a young group of receivers, running backs that have never started a game. etc.
    I bet even a couple of weeks spring practice would have helped tremendously. ( Did I mention going to Tuscaloosa in week 3 :bang: )
    Anyway....Go Dawgs...sic em...woof..woof..woof..

    They’ve really fallen off a cliff. For a long time, their niche was getting the middling, 3 star type recruits & developing them into solid 4/5 year players with occasional guys that really popped. I think once they made the playoff and saw the talent gap up close, they tried to ramp it up & recruit head to head for top 100 type players with some of the regional & national powers and the program suffered as a result.

    Of course each state is different and we are still a long way from having a season- and there are things much, much more important than college football. However, it looks like we are a step closer. Ohio State’s players will be returning to campus June 8 (link below) I’d imagine other schools/conferences will be doing similar. I think if the powers that be can get their ducks in a row by mid July, the games can be played as scheduled- albeit likely without fans.

    I would be all over LSU under 9 (even at -130). No way Orgeron wins more than 7 this year.
