College football odds: How the National Championship lines have moved

The College Football Playoff (CFP) National Championship Game will feature the No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide taking on No. 3 Georgia Bulldogs on Monday, January 10th at 8 p.m. ET. When it comes to gambling, we've already seen a jump in the point spread. Could this be a precursor of more moves to come?

With the all-SEC title matchup between the Crimson Tide and Bulldogs around the corner, let's take a look at how the title odds and point spread move throughout the week (with all odds via FOX Bet).


Georgia: -150 (bet $10 to win $16.67 total)

Alabama: +125 (bet $10 to win $22.50 total)

*Odds as of 1/03/2022


1/01/2022: Georgia -2.5

1/02/2022: Georgia -2.5

1/03/2022: Georgia -3

1/04/2022: Georgia -3

A few things that stand out:

  • After the CFP semifinal games, Georgia opened as 2.5-point favorites vs. Alabama at FOX Bet. On Monday, that line moved, and the Bulldogs are now 3-point favorites against the Crimson Tide.
  • Alabama defeated Cincinnati 27-6 in the Cotton Bowl Classic Semifinal and clinched a second consecutive trip to the title game. Despite losing, the Bearcats still made history as they became the first team from the Group of Five to earn a spot in the CFP.
  • In the Capital One Orange Bowl Semifinal, Georgia routed Michigan 34-11 to advance to their second CFP Championship appearance in four years. The Wolverines made some history of their own as they became the first program to snag a playoff berth after beginning the season unranked.
  • Alabama leads Georgia in the all-time series 42–25–4.
