2016 College Football Playoffs Semifinals Expert Picks

Posted by Aaron . on July 28, 2016 in

The College Football season has all sorts of drama coming into the season, with several teams that feel they have a chance to win the college football national championship. For the last couple seasons, there has been the 4 team playoff to decide the champion. Obviously, you cannot win the national title without advancing to the 4 team playoff. Let’s take a look at the best college football picks to make the 4 team playoff.

Here’s the 2016 College Football Playoffs Semifinals Expert Picks

The Favorite to Make the 2016 College Football Playoffs Semifinals: Clemson Tigeres

The Clemson Tigers have the best odds to reach the 4 team college football playoff. Dabo Swinney and his Tigers are the favorites. While may not be the favorite to win it all, they have better odds to reach the 4 game playoff due to their schedule. The TIgers really just have two marquee games in their schedule, and if they win those, and run the table in the rest, no doubt they will be back in the title game. The Clemson Tigers have likely the best quarterback in the nation in DeShaun Watson, and a tremendous defense. The Clemson Tigers are the favorites at 8.5/1

The Smartest Pick to Make the 2016 College Football Playoffs Semifinals: Notre Dame Fighting Irish

The smart money to reach the 4 team college playoff is the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. Brian Kelly and his crew do not have to play a 13th game, since they do not play in a conference championship at the end of their season. The Fighting Irish schedule is not overly difficult; as the Texas Longhorns and Stanford could be potential hiccups. The problem is – the Fighting Irish do not have any room to take a loss. But in the end; at 20/1 we are betting on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish as the smart bet to reach the NCAA College Football Playoff.

The Longshot to Make the 2016 College Football Playoffs Semifinals: Houston Cougars

The longshot would be the Houston Cougars. The Cougars, as we know, can score points, and have emerged as one of the top offensive programs in the nation. They have a tough start, but if they can sneak the Week 1 win over Oklahoma, nothing in the American Conference would be nearly as difficult. The Houston Cougars are listed at 66/1 odds to make the 4 team college football playoff, and are our longshot to make it.

My Free Pick & Prediction

There you go. Those are the favorite, the smart bet and the longshot to reach the NCAA Football 4 team playoff at the end of the season. With us needing to make a pick, we are going to go to the Big Ten, and not the Ohio State Buckeyes. Our NCAA Football team to pick to reach the NCAA College Football Playoff is going to be coach John Harbaugh and his Michigan Wolverines. The Wolverines have a ton back from his first season in Ann Arbor, where they improved on a weekly basis. The Wolverines are 9/1 odds, and we like them to take the whole thing. Best of luck with all your college football betting, and enjoy the season!
