OddsShark NCAA Football Season Preview

With college football set to get started at the end of August bettors are already planning their wagers for the season. And here at we have you covered with everything you'll need to walk away from the upcoming college football campaign with some extra cash in your back pocket.

Below are links to betting previews for each of the major and mid-major conferences for the upcoming football season, where you'll find a general overview of the conference futures:


2014 Big Ten Football Betting Preview

Ohio State and Michigan State both went undefeated in Big Ten conference play last season, with the Spartans topping the Buckeyes 34-24 in the Big Ten Championship Game. Ohio State, though, had the edge on the odds to win the Big Ten championship this offseason - until quarterback Braxton Miller got injured.


College Football Championship Odds List

The new College Football Playoff is set to start this season, with the College Football Championship Game replacing the BCS National Championship Game as college football's deciding matchup.

Florida State and their Heisman-winning quarterback Jameis Winston edged Auburn by a score of 34-31 in the title game last season, and the oddsmakers have them as the favorite on the College Football Championship Game betting lines for the 2014/15 campaign.


College Football Playoff Betting Overview

The Bowl Championship Series is dead, as the 2014/15 college football season will usher in the inaugural College Football Playoff. And now, instead of debating which two teams deserve a spot in the national championship game at the end of the season, college football fans will instead be debating which four teams should make up the bracket of the College Football Playoff.


College Football Playoff Betting Venues

The new College Football Playoff will determine this year's college football national champion, and the opening three venues for the bracket will be Pasadena, New Orleans, and Arlington.

Replacing the BCS system, the College Football Playoff is a series of three games that will decide the national champion – two semifinal matchups that will take place around New Year's Day, and then the College Football Championship Game that will take place a week later. The two semifinal winners will then move on to play in the championship game.


College Football Championship Futures

After winning the 2014 college football championship the Florida State Seminoles are pegged as the 4/1 favorites to repeat with another national title in 2015 - just ahead of the 5/1 Alabama Crimson Tide.

Oregon is at 7/1 odds, with Auburn at 9/1, Oklahoma at 10/1, and Ohio State all the way down to 28/1 on the news that starting quarterback Braxton Miller would miss the season with a shoulder injury. Here's a look at the betting odds at the books to win the 2015 College Football Championship Game.


Ohio State odds drop on QB Miller injury

How much does one awkward football throw affect the college football championship odds?

If the awkward throw injures the shoulder of Heisman Trophy candidate Braxton Miller, then Ohio State’s odds to win the college football national championship would plunge from 10-1 to 18-1.

“Until we hear his MRI results this morning, the only thing we have reopened for now is Championship Odds,” said Kevin Bradley of this morning.
