2023-24 College Football Playoff Season Odds, Spread Predictions, Top Vegas Trends: Proven Insider Reveals Best Bets

No. 8 Oregon has had College Football Playoff aspirations all season, but the Ducks will instead settle for a meeting with the No. 23 Liberty in the 2024 Fiesta Bowl on New Year’s Day. Liberty went undefeated during the regular season before defeating New Mexico State in the Conference USA title game. However, the Flames are 16.5-point underdogs in the latest SportsLine consensus College Football Playoff odds. Oregon won nine games by multiple touchdowns, with its two losses coming against Washington.

Elsewhere on the 2023-24 College Football Playoff schedule, No. 21 Tennessee will face No. 17 Iowa in the Citrus Bowl on Jan. 1. The Vols are 6-point college football bowl favorites, but should you include them in your college football bets? Before making any picks on these or any other college football games, be sure to check out legendary Vegas handicapper Bruce Marshall’s college football betting guide.

For years, Vegas-based Marshall was synonymous with The Gold Sheet, the famous sports betting newsletter. With experience working in game and sports information while in college, Marshall joined TGS in 1981 when he was hired by the legendary Mort Olshan and served as executive editor for many years. He now brings his unique and colorful brand of football and basketball analysis to SportsLine members.

A sought-after guest on numerous sports radio and television shows across the country, Bruce’s vast body of editorial work has been featured in the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the New York Post and many other publications. He has won various handicap titles and is also working on several book projects.

Now, using his Tech Corner technique, Marshall has turned his attention to the latest college football odds for the bowl season and graded each game. Go here to see each selection.

Top college football predictions for bowl season

One of college football’s top picks Marshall recommends for bowl season: No. 13 LSU (-10) to cover against Wisconsin in the ReliaQuest Bowl on Jan. 1 at noon ET. He also likes the Over (56) in this match.

Wisconsin isn’t built to keep up with LSU, which led the country in points and yards per game this season. The Tigers will be without Heisman-Trophy-winning quarterback Jaden Daniels, but sophomore Garrett Nussmeier has been with the program for three seasons. He has big-game experience, facing Alabama this year and Georgia in the 2022 SEC Championship.

The Tigers have covered the gap in six of their last seven games, averaging nearly 50 points per game in wins over Florida, Georgia State and Texas A&M. Wisconsin will be without star Braelon Allen, so first-time head coach Luke Fickle will rely more on the passing attack. That gives Marshall a reason to take the Over as well, especially since LSU has gone the Over in 15 of its last 16 games. See what other choices to make here.
