Handicapping 2022 NCAA Football Championship Futures
Looking for 2022 College Football Championship Futures Betting Lines & Expert Picks? There was a lot that happened in 2020 that we hadn’t seen before, but little changed when the final College Football Playoff rankings were released, with the final four again made up from the list of usual suspects. When all was said and done, Nick Saban claimed his seventh national title, and sixth in Tuscaloosa. His Crimson Tide are the favorites to repeat as champions in 2022.
2022 CFB National Championship Futures Review
Here’s a closer look at the odds for the top five teams in the hunt for the national title this year, and a few others that may present some value.
2022 College Football Championship Futures Betting Lines: Alabama Crimson Tide +300
Alabama is coming off a national title victory and will lose star players on offense such as Mac Jones, Najee Harris, Devonta Smith, and Jaylen Waddle, but Saban has established a culture in Tuscaloosa that makes the program very attractive to top talents, and no so team can weather that much turnover the way Alabama can.
Five-star quarterback recruit Bryce Young will move under center and take the starting reigns, while Jase McClellan will be the next notorious Alabama running back pro teams covet. And the program’s not so quietly become a wide receiver factory. The Tide are correctly slotted in as the favorites to repeat as national champions.
2022 College Football Championship Futures Betting Lines: Clemson Tigers +400
The No. 1 pick in April’s draft will be former Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence. While that’s a great boon for the program, the Tigers now have a hole to fill at the most important position in the game.
DJ Uiagalelei performed well in two spot starts while Lawrence was out after contracting Covid-19. But Clemson didn’t play as well as they did the rest of the year with Lawrence in the fold. This could be a year in which Clemson takes a brief step back, or Uiagalelei could take a big leap and keep them right in contention.
2022 College Football Championship Futures Betting Lines: Georgia Bulldogs +400
Georgia remains firmly within the national title conversation, and could get a boost from returning quarterback JT Daniels. Daniels is among the favorites for the Heisman Trophy this season. After what LSU accomplished with Joe Burrow just a couple seasons ago, we all know how dominant an SEC team with a Heisman-caliber quarterback can be.
2022 College Football Championship Futures Betting Lines: Ohio State Buckeyes +600
The Buckeyes may have a down year ahead of them. After making it all the way to the College Football Playoff National Championship, Ohio State fell short to Alabama, 52-24. Now the Buckeyes must replace Justin Fields at quarterback – a daunting task given how well he performed a year ago.
2022 College Football Championship Futures Betting Lines: Oklahoma Sonners +750
The favorite to claim the Heisman this year is Oklahoma quarterback Spencer Rattler. As a redshirt freshman, he had a solid season in a down year for the Sooners, but he could be in position to make a giant leap forward in year two. The Sooners’ national title chances were all but wiped away with early season losses to Iowa State and Kansas State. Expect a bounce back from this perennial contender.
2022 College Football Championship Futures Betting Lines: USC Trojans +3000, Oregon Ducks +4000
The Pac-12 is in rough shape right now. Oregon was a part of the College Football Playoff in 2014, but no Pac-12 representative has returned to the tournament since then. The program seems to do itself in each year, knocking its own top teams off to put enough losses on the board to sabotage its chances.
2022 College Football Championship Futures Betting Lines: North Carolina Tar Heels +6000
The best quarterback in the ACC may be in Chapel Hill. Sam Howell, a sophomore, finished fourth in the nation in passing yards las season, helping the Tar Heels to an 8-4 record. He can help transition the program out of the shadow of its basketball counterpart.
