With the 2018 college football regular-season in the books, it’s time to turn our attention to bowl season, which will be here and gone before you know it.

Starting with 5 games on Saturday, December 15th, there will be 40 games (78 teams) playing over a span of 24 days with 39 of those games coming in a 17 day period.

2018-19 College Football Bowl Betting Schedule, Game Odds & TV Listings

I’ve put together a full betting schedule to help you stay on top of all the action. You will find the start times, TV Listings (most games are on ESPN) and the betting odds for each contest.

Our staff will also be previewing each of these bowl matchups and providing a free betting lean on the spread or total, so be sure to check back for some free winners.

The four teams in the playoffs are (1) Alabama, (2) Clemson, (3) Notre Dame and (4) Oklahoma. It’s almost the same 4 teams from last year. The only difference being Notre Dame is in and Georgia is out.

The good news this year is you won’t have to worry about your New  Year’s plans getting in the way of watching the semifinal games. They will be played on Saturday, Dec. 29th.  First up will be Clemson/Notre Dame in the Cotton Bowl. Followed with Alabama/Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl. The Championship Game will be held on Monday, January 7th at 8:00 pm EST on ESPN.

One thing that stood out to me is the number of games that are expected to be close. There’s currently 30 games with a spread of a touchdown or less.

Ironically two of the biggest spreads come in the two semifinal games. Alabama is the biggest favorite on the board, at -14 against Oklahoma. The next highest is BYU (-12) over Western Michigan and then it’s Clemson as a 11-point favorite over Notre Dame.
