College Football Conference Championship Picks: 3 Best Bets

Alabama vs. Georgia Prediction - SEC Championship - 4:00 p.m. ET

Alabama vs. Georgia Odds

The first play I will be diving into will be the game of the day when the Georgia Bulldogs and the Alabama Crimson Tide battle. This is the game of the year for many reasons, as many believe these are the two best teams in the nation, and Alabama likely needs to win this game to make the College Football playoffs. This is a well-oiled machine for coach Nick Saban, but they will have their toughest test in a long time today facing Kirby Smarts Bulldogs. This will be a game filled with star power across the board and a bunch of NFL talent. The play I am going with in this game will be the dog in the Alabama Crimson Tide. This is a line that is still off to me despite the dominance Georgia has presented this season. This Alabama team is still the second-best team in the nation, and you do not often get a Nick Saban team as the heavy dog, and I will be all over this line.

Georgia does have a great defense, but Alabama also presents one of the best offenses in the nation. This will be a tough task for the Georgia defense, and I believe Bryce Young and company will put up enough points to cover, and I think, win outright. 

Alabama vs. Georgia Pick

Cincinnati vs. Houston Prediction - American Athletic Conference Championship - 4:00 p.m.

Cincinnati vs. Houston Odds

The second Play I am going with will be a battle for the American Championship. The Houston Cougars will take on the Cincinnati Bearcats. The Bearcats are likely in a situation where if they win, they are in, while Houston would love to play spoiler and get themselves an American Championship. This is a great Houston team that scores north of thirty-five points per game which is typical of a Dana Holgersen team. The biggest difference with this Houston team is they are an excellent defense and rank number one or two in most categories in America. This is a game that the dog is again getting far too many points. Houston will be playing this game lose and with a lot less to lose than Cincy will. Cincinnati needs to win this football game, or their playoff hopes are done. I think we could see the upset here as Houston matches up very well with the Bearcats, but I will be taking the +10.5 as my play. I expect this to be a great and close game from start to finish. 

Cincinnati vs. Houston Pick

  • Houston +10.5 (-110) 

Wake Forest vs. Pittsburgh Prediction - ACC Championship - 8:00 p.m. ET

Wake Forest vs. Pitt Odds

The final Play I am taking will be the Pitt Panthers as they face off with the Wake Forrest Demon Deacons with the ACC on the line. I first want to thank both of these teams this season as I have had a lot of success backing them this season, and each team had a great year, much better than pre-season expectations. This game is set to be a good old-fashioned shootout as the Pitt Panthers and Wake Forest Demon Deacons each present top-tier offenses and average defenses. I believe this game will come down to who makes fewer mistakes and turns the football over less. I trust Kenny Pickett in this game to take care of the football and to lead Pitt to an ACC Championship. The way this line has been on the move all week also makes me love the Panthers here. I will be backing the better QB here and ride the Pitt Panthers on the money line. 

Wake Forest vs. Pitt Pick

  • Pittsburgh ML (-145)
