Fan Duel already has CFB lines for 2024!

FanDuel has already posted spreads for a dozen college football games in 2024.

The season will again kick off Dublin, Ireland, where Florida State and Ga. Tech will collide in an ACC showdown. The Seminoles are 12.5-point favorites with a total of 52.5, and the Yellow Jackets are +360 on the money line.

Mike Norvell’s team has replaced quarterback Jordan Travis with a familiar name, DJ Uiagalelei, who previously played at Clemson and Oregon St. before transferring to FSU.

According to the 247Sports Composite, FSU has the #10 overall recruiting class and is ranked #4 in terms of its transfer-specific imports. In addition to Uiagalelei, the Seminoles have added nine other four-star transfers.

This group includes the likes of ex-Georgia EDGE Marvin Jones Jr., former LSU WR Jalen Brown, ex-Alabama CB Earl Little II, ex-Alabama WR Malik Benson, former West Va. DL Tomiwa Durojaiye, ex-Oregon St. DL Sione Lolohea, former Alabama OL Terrence Ferguson, ex-Alabama RB Roydell Williams and former Alabama LB Shawn Murphy.

Jones’s father Marvin Sr. is right there with Derrick Brooks as one of the best LBs in FSU’s storied history.

Ga. Tech went bowling for the first time since 2018 in head coach Brent Key’s first full season at the helm. The Yellow Jackets finished the year 7-6 SU and 8-5 ATS thanks to a 30-17 win over UCF at the Gasparilla Bowl.

They bring back QB Haynes King, who produced 37 combined TDs (passing and rushing) in his first year in Atlanta since transferring from Texas A&M.

In Week 1, FanDuel has Texas A&M as a 1.5-point home favorite vs. Notre Dame. The total is 50.5 points.

Mike Elko left Duke after a stellar two-year run to replace Jimbo Fisher as the HC in College Station. Marcus Freeman is entering his third season at Notre Dame after compiling a 10-3 record both SU and ATS.

The Fighting Irish are replacing QB Sam Hartman with Riley Leonard, who was Elko’s QB at Duke. Meanwhile, the Aggies will be getting back Conner Weigman, who has a 16/2 career touchdown-to-interception ratio but sustained a season-ending injury in Week 4 of this past year.

The other Week 1 lines include Colorado -8.5 vs. North Dakota St., Georgia -12.5 vs. Clemson (in Atlanta) and LSU -6 vs. USC (in Las Vegas).

The total for North Dakota St. at Colorado is 58.5 points. The Buffaloes return many of their best players like QB Shedeur Sanders, WR/CB Travis Hunter, RB Dylan Edwards, safety Shilo Sanders and WR Jimmy Horn Jr.

Coach Prime also has the country’s #22 overall recruiting class that’s ranked #5 in terms of transfer-specific players. CU has 24 incoming transfers, including seven four-star additions.

The Buffaloes also landed the nation’s #1 offensive lineman from the high school ranks. That’s 6-foot-5, 287-pound Jordan Seaton out of Bradenton, Florida. Seaton joins five incoming OL transfers to provide better protection for QB Shedeur Sanders, who has 40/1 odds to win the Heisman.

Hunter, who has 75/1 odds to win the Heisman, and Horn will be Sheduer’s favorite targets after the departure of leading receiver Xavier Weaver, but Coach Prime has added five other weapons for his QB son from out of the portal.

Ex-Vanderbilt WR Will Sheppard will have an instant impact. In 2022, he had 60 receptions for 776 yards and nine TDs for the Commodores. Sheppard had 47 catches for 684 yards and eight TDs this past year.

Sheppard and former Cincinnati TE Chamon Metayer are four-star transfers, while ex-NC St. WR Terrell Timmons Jr., former FAU WR LaJohntay Wester and ex-TCU WR Cardale Russell are three-star imports.

In 11 games this past season, Metayer had 23 catches for 258 yards and five TDs. He also had 27 rushing yards on just one attempt.

In 2023, Wester had 108 receptions for 1,168 yards and eight TDs. He also had 44 rushing yards and one TD on just eight attempts for the Owls.

In 45 career games at FAU, Wester produced 252 career catches for 2,703 yards and 21 TDs. He also had 213 career rushing yards, two TDs and a 5.9 yards-per-carry average.

FanDuel currently has Georgia as the +300 ‘chalk’ to win the 2024-25 College Football Playoff, while Clemson has 30/1 odds. QB Carson Beck is back for another season as UGA’s starting QB, and he’s the co-favorite to win the Heisman Trophy with Texas QB Quinn Ewers (+750).

LSU is replacing QB Jayden Daniels with Garrett Nussmeier, who has 18/1 odds to win the Heisman. Nussmeier led the Tigers to a 35-31 comeback win over Wisconsin at the ReliaQuest Bowl. He completed 31-of-45 passes for 395 yards and three TDs with one interception against the Badgers.

USC ended the year on a high note by thumping Louisville 42-28 as a five-point underdog. QB Miller Moss set a Holiday Bowl-record by throwing for six TD passes and 372 yards.

In Week 2, FanDuel has Texas as a 2.5-point road favorite (at a -115 price) at Michigan. The Wolverines are +116 on the money line, and the total is 49.5 points.

On Sept. 28, Georgia is a 3.5-point road ‘chalk’ (-115) at Alabama. The total is 53.5 points (‘over’ -115, ‘under’ -105), while the Crimson Tide is +140 on the money line.

FanDuel opened Alabama as the short home favorite in this spot. However, after Nick Saban’s retirement, UGA moved into the ‘chalk’ role. Then when a slew of Alabama’s top players hit the transfer portal, the Bulldogs moved North of the key number of three.

Since Matthew Stafford threw a game-winning TD pass to beat Alabama in overtime at Bryant-Denny Stadium in 2007, UGA has tasted victory against the Tide only once in the 2021-22 CFP finals.

In Week 6 on Oct. 5, Michigan is an 11.5-point road favorite (-115) at Washington. The total is 51.5 points, and the Huskies are +350 to win outright.

Both schools have lost their HCs since Michigan beat Washington in the CFP finals earlier this month. Jim Harbaugh is the new HC of the Chargers, while Kalen DeBoer has taken over for Saban at Alabama.

The Wolverines promoted OC Sherrone Moore to replace Harbaugh, while Washington hired Jedd Fisch away from Arizona.

On Oct. 12, FanDuel has Oregon installed as a 1.5-point home favorite (-102) vs. Ohio St. (+1.5, -120). The total is 57.5 points.

You think the Buckeyes are growing tired of Michigan’s success over the last three years? That certainly seems to be the case with the sort of NIL money they’re throwing around to the nation’s top transfers.

Ryan Day’s program has scored some major talent from out of the portal, including a pair of five-star transfers and three four-star acquisitions. The five-star transfers are both from Alabama in safety Caleb Downs and QB Julian Sayin.

Playing for the Tide in 2023, Downs was the SEC Freshman of the Year, a first-team All-SEC selection and a member of the SEC All-Freshman Team. Sayin didn’t play as a true freshman and burned his redshirt year.

The trio of four-star transfers include ex-Ole Miss RB Quinshon Judkins, former Alabama OL Seth McLaughlin and ex-Kansas St. QB Will Howard. Sayin and Howard will compete with Devin Brown for the starting QB job in what’s a make-or-break campaign for Day’s tenure in Columbus.

Oregon retained Dan Lanning in the recent Coaching Carousel, and he scored former Oklahoma QB Dillon Gabriel from out of the portal to replace Bo Nix.

Another Oct. 12 matchup is the first SEC edition of the Red River Rivalry, with FanDuel listing Texas as a 10.5-point favorite vs. Oklahoma. The total is 60.5 points, while the Sooners are +300 on the money line.

Just one week later, Texas is hosting Georgia as a 1.5-point home underdog (-118) with a total of 55.5.

Kirby Smart’s team is -3.5 at Ole Miss on Nov. 9. The Rebels will be looking to avenge a 52-17 loss at UGA from this past November.

Although Lane Kiffin’s team lost Judkins to Ohio St., it has otherwise enjoyed a banner offseason to date. Ole Miss has the nation’s #17 overall recruiting class, but its transfer-specific additions are ranked #1 in the country.

Kiffin has 17 incoming transfers, including seven four-star players and one five-star. The prize is former Texas A&M DL Walter Nolen, who had 11 tackles for loss, five sacks, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery in two seasons with the Aggies.

A few of the four-star transfers include ex-South Carolina WR Antwane ‘Juice’ Wells, former Florida EDGE Princely Umanmielen, ex-Arkansas LB Chris Paul Jr. and former Alabama CB Trey Amos.

Ole Miss has 15/1 odds to win the CFP at FanDuel, with only seven teams owning shorter odds. Jaxson Dart will be back for his third season as the Rebels’ starting QB, and he shares the seventh-shortest odds to win the Heisman (15/1) with Nussmeier.

Another lined SEC game on Nov. 9 will take place in Baton Rouge, where LSU is -2.5 vs. Alabama. The total is 59.5 points, and the Tide is +106 on the money line.

Finally, FanDuel has Ohio St. as a 6.5-point home favorite (-122) vs Michigan (+6.5, +100) during Rivalry Weekend. The total is 49.5 points, while the Wolverines are +210 to win outright.

The Buckeyes will be looking to end a three-game losing streak against their bitter rivals.
