Championship Game Odds Facts

– Ohio State’s spread (-14) versus Northwestern marks the first double-digit spread in the history of the Big Ten Championship. The underdog has won four of the last six Big Ten Championship games.

– Clemson (-26.5 vs. Pittsburgh) is the second largest favorite in ACC Championship game history. The biggest spread was Florida State (-30) against Duke in 2013.

– Alabama’s 13-point spread versus Georgia is the smallest spread the Crimson Tide have been assigned all year. The -14 at LSU was the only other time they were fewer than 21-point favorites this season..

– The SEC Championship marks the 52nd straight game in which Alabama has been favored, the longest streak in the nation. In those 52 games, the Crimson Tide will have been favored by double digits 42 times. Alabama has been a double-digit favorite in 22 of its last 23 regular season games. Alabama was favored in 72 straight games before its lone game as an underdog, so the Tide have now been favored in 124 of their last 125 games.

– The over/under of 78 in the Big 12 Championship game is the highest in the history of the Red River Rivalry (since totals became widely available in 1998). The previous high was 72.5 in 2016.

– The Longhorns (+7.5 vs. Oklahoma) are underdogs for the seventh straight time in this series. Texas is 6-0 against the spread in the prior six games against the Sooners.

– UCF is favored by a field goal (opened -4.5) against Memphis in the American Athletic Conference Championship, which is the smallest spread the Knights have incurred all season.
