2023 COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYOFF PREDICTIONS

CFP Playoff: Futures Picks

Georgia 31, Michigan 17

Well, that lasted all of a week. Michigan wrecked Ohio State in The Game and it would seem that barring some crazy ending to the season, Ohio State will be left out of the CFP once again this season. Michigan takes their spot in my new prediction since it does not feel like TCU or USC can defeat either of these teams more than half the time, setting up a rematch of last year's New Year's Eve showdown with Georgia, which the Bulldogs won handily. I see a similar result happening this year, with the power of Georgia just being too much for Michigan to overcome.

2022 Heisman Trophy Picks

Our 25 College Football Experts gave us three picks to win the Heisman Trophy in 2022 based on three betting ranges.

Our VegasInsider College Football Experts are gearing up for the 2022-23 regular season and they’re coming in strong with their futures predictions on who will be playing in this year’s College Football Playoff and the eventual champion. 

The 25 betting experts have provided their top selections on key betting categories and we’ve listed all of the Top Consensus Picks. 

Who will win the 2022-23 College Football Playoff?

The College Football Playoff championship will take place on Jan. 9, 2023 at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California

Knowing that College Football is very top-heavy, it’s no surprise to see that our experts are expecting a two-horse race this season between Alabama and Ohio State, with 88% of the total picks on the Crimson Tide and Buckeyes to capture the CFP championship. 

The defending champions Georgia Bulldogs received a couple votes in their repeat bid and that might be a reach, knowing that we haven’t seen a school win back-to-back titles since the CFP began in the 2014-15 season.

If you’re looking for the outlier and a long shot pick to win this year’s College Football Playoff then check out the Utah Utes, who were selected by VI Expert Zack Cimini

Listed below are the VegasInsider Experts College Football Playoff consensus picks.

College Football Playoff Consensus Picks

  1. Alabama 14 (56%)
  2. Ohio State 8 (32%)

  4. Utah 1 (4%)

Which four schools will earn a bid to the College Football Playoff?

The College Football Playoff semifinals matchups will take place on Dec. 31, 2022 from the Fiesta Bowl in Arizona and Peach Bowl in Georgia. 

Since the CFP began in 2014, we’ve had 16 semifinals games and those 32 slots have been filled by 13 schools and seven of them have made just one appearance. 

So who will make up this year’s Final Four? 

Similar to our College Playoff Picks for the championship, Alabama (25) and Ohio State (24) were picked by almost all of our betting experts to be playing in this year’s semifinals. 

Georgia (16) and Clemson (14) also received the majority of the attention and then there’s a drop-off to potential long shots that could crash this year’s party.
