DraftKings releases lines for potential CFP finals matchups

Georgia TE Brock Bowers had five catches for 55 yards and one TD in last year's 34-11 win over Michigan in the CFP semifinals.

DraftKings has released the spreads for all four potential matchups in the College Football Playoff finals on Jan. 9.

The book has Georgia (13-0 straight up, 7-6 against the spread) installed as a 7.5-point favorite vs. Michigan. These teams met in last year’s CFP semifinals, with Kirby Smart’s team coasting to a 34-11 win as a 7.5-point ‘chalk’ at the Orange Bowl. That defeat is the only one Jim Harbaugh’s team has taken in its last 19 games.

DraftKings has UGA listed as a 15.5-point favorite vs. TCU. These schools have met four times, with the Bulldogs winning all four meetings. They captured a 31-23 win over the Horned Frogs at the 2016 AutoZone Liberty Bowl in Memphis.

Ohio St. is a 10.5-point favorite vs. TCU. The Buckeyes are 5-1-1 in seven all-time meetings against the Frogs, who lost a 40-28 decision to OSU in Arlington, TX., at Jerry World in 2018. However, they covered the spread as 12.5-point underdogs.

If an Ohio St.-Michigan rematch materializes, Ryan Day’s team is listed as a three-point favorite to avenge the 45-23 loss it took against the Wolverines in Columbus two weeks ago.

DraftKings has UGA listed as a -125 ‘chalk’ to win the CFP going into the semifinals. The Bulldogs are followed by Michigan (+290), Ohio St. (+360) and TCU (+1600 or 16/1).
