The important trends for every college football title game

By Steve Makinen  ( 


Perhaps not even the most optimistic college football fan thought we would get to this point in 2020, but this weekend offers 10 big games that will decide conference championships. A few will also influence the final College Football Playoff bracket. Much looks familiar as we analyze this year’s board, with the usual big names such as Alabama, Ohio State, Clemson and Oklahoma playing for titles. These teams have become fixtures in their conference championship games. A few rematches of previous league title games, one as recent as two years ago, also are on tap. Perhaps the biggest storyline for this year’s games will be the rematch in the ACC, pitting first- and supposedly only-time participant Notre Dame against revenge-minded Clemson, which has a playoff berth on the line. Initial point spreads don’t indicate a very competitive weekend, with five double-digit lines and only two games with a number less than 5.5. But that shouldn’t matter to bettors, especially since underdogs won half of last year’s 10 games ATS. Here is a look at the betting history of the league championship games and how it might affect this year’s contests.
