The new college football season starts this month. What’s going to happen this season? Are Alabama and Clemson really the top two teams in the nation? Who will win the Heisman and what Top 5 team will fall from grace? Check out our 10 bold College Football betting predictions for the 2019 Season!
Ten Bold 2019 College Football Betting Predictions
Oklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts will win the Heisman Trophy
Riley has created #1 NFL Draft Picks in the past couple of season. Both Mayfield and Murray went first in the NFL even though neither had any of the traditional pro-quarterback measurables. This season, Riley gets to show Jalen Hurts, all 6’ 2” and 219 lbs. of him, what it’s like to run the best offensive system, maybe, in college football history.
Hurts won’t disappoint, making it three years in a row that Oklahoma quarterbacks win the Heisman.
Hurts will lead the Sooners to an undefeated regular season record
Hurts has as much talent as Mayfield and Murray. Not only that, but the schedule isn’t nearly as formidable as so many believe. Plus, coordinator Alex Grinch will ensure a better defense than what the Sooners fielded last season.
Florida will win the SEC East
This might be more a foolish prediction than bold because Florida’s strength of schedule is ridiculous. However, the Gators only lost 3 games last season. We know coach Dan Mullen will have them ready to take the next step.
Georgia will lose at least 2 regular season games
The Bulldogs’ schedule appears almostas difficult as the Gators’. The Dawgs must battle Notre Dame. They travel to Florida and Auburn. They take on Texas A&M at home. UGA loses at least two of those ridiculously tough battles.
Ohio State will lose at least two regular season games as well
The Buckeyes must replace a record-setting quarterback, one of their top defensive ends of all time, and coach Urban Meyer. None of that will be easy to do. Ohio State travels to Nebraska and Michigan this season. Those games should be losses.
Michigan will go undefeated during the regular season
While the rival Buckeyes should lose a couple of games, Michigan should go undefeated. The Wolverines battle Army, Ohio State, and Notre Dame at home. The toughest road game is at Penn State. The Nittany Lions must find a way to score points this season. So, that should be a Michigan victory.
Nebraska will win the Big Ten West
The Big Ten West is often woeful. This year, it’s close to being pathetic save for the Nebraska Cornhuskers. Wisconsin is the favorite, again, but the Badgers must rebuild their offensive line. Nebraska quarterback Adrian Martinez could give Hurts, Bama’s Tua Tagovailoa, and Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence a run for their Heisman money.
Utah will win the Pac 12
The Pac 12 South might be as bad as the Big Ten West. Utah should dominate the Arizona schools, USC, UCLA, and awful Colorado. The Utes would then only need to beat Washington, Oregon, or Washington State, whichever team wins the Pac 12 North, to take the conference. Utah will do that because they’ve got a Top 5 defensive line. The rest of the defense is scary good as well.
The 4-teams that make the College Football Playoff will be Alabama, Clemson, Oklahoma, and Michigan
All four powerhouse teams can also go undefeated during the regular season. Clemson and Oklahoma are locks to go undefeated. Michigan might stumble against Notre Dame. They shouldn’t, but they might. If the Domers do beat them, the Wolverines beat Ohio State and win the Big Ten to redeem themselves.
Alabama’s toughest game is at Texas A&M on October 12. They battle LSU at home. Auburn shouldn’t be that good. They don’t take on Georgia or Florida.
Alabama will beat Clemson in the National Championship
Oklahoma and Michigan will impress during the regular season. Michigan just isn’t as good as the other three teams. Oklahoma’s defense, although better, won’t stand up to Clemson’s or Alabama’s offense.
Who wins in the rematch? Alabama. Nick Saban and Tua have had an entire offseason to figure out what went wrong in the 2019 National Championship. Bama gets back on top of the college football world in 2020.
