College Football Playoff Opening Bowl Lines are set

Credit: Michigan Athletics

On Sunday, we found out who the four teams in the College Football Playoff are - and in no surprise, Alabama, Michigan, Georgia and Cincinnati are the four schools who will be competing for this year's championship.

And of course, as soon as the matchups were announced, we know what you want next: Betting odds. Well, here they are provided by DraftKings Sportsbook:

No. 4 Cincinnati vs. No. 1 Alabama

Spread: Alabama (-13.5)

Over/Under: 59

No. 3 Georgia vs. No. 2 Michigan

Spread: Georgia (-7)

Over/Under: 43.5

Ultimately if you follow and love college football, these numbers really shouldn't be deemed as all too much of a shock.

The Crimson Tide and Bulldogs have essentially been considered the top two teams in college football since both picked up big wins on Labor Day weekend, and things haven't really slowed down from there. Alabama and Georgia were the only schools to be ranked No. 1 all season long.

So it probably shouldn't be a surprise that each is favored by at least a touchdown, with Alabama coming in at just under a two touchdown favorite against the Cincinnati Bearcats.

It also shouldn't be surprising to see the over/unders set to where they are. Georgia and Michigan are two, tough, physical teams so a game played in the 20's feels about right, whereas Alabama's explosive offense going up against a solid Cincinnati defense should make for some fireworks there.
