College Football Odds, Lines & Predictions for Championship Week, 2021: Model Chooses Cincinnati, Oklahoma State
Saturday’s portion of the Championship Week college football schedule is packed with important games, but headlining will be in Atlanta when No.1 Georgia faces No.3 Alabama in the SEC title game (16 h ET, CBS). The Bulldogs finished the regular season 12-0, winning the last 11 games in double digits. Alabama suffered a disappointing loss to Texas A&M in the middle of the season, which means the stakes are extremely high for Nick Saban’s side. The Crimson Tides are 6.5 point underdogs in the latest Championship Week college football odds at Caesars Sportsbook.
Alabama haven’t been an underdog since 2015, when they beat Georgia in a 38-10 road final. Can the Crimson Tide take another win against the Bulldogs? And which other varsity football lines are most valuable in this busy league week on Saturday?

Best College Football Predictions For Championship Week
One of the top college football picks the model recommends for Championship week: No.4 Cincinnati (-10.5) vs. No.21 Houston in the AAC Championship game at 4 p.m. ET Saturday. The Bearcats could be one win away from securing a berth in the college football playoffs. They need to win this game by a margin to feel comfortable with their chances, so punters should feel just as comfortable laying the woods on Saturday afternoon. Cincinnati has won 26 straight home games and is playing its third straight AAC title game.
Houston lost 18 points to Cincinnati last season and lost 17 points to Texas Tech earlier this season. The SportsLine model expects the Bearcats to control the tempo with his rushed attack, as running back Jerome Ford is expected to run nearly 80 yards and a touchdown. Bearcats cover the spread in 60% of the simulations, while the over (53) reaches more than 50% of the time.
Another of the model’s college football predictions: the Oklahoma State No.5 (-5.5), fresh off a massive Bedlam victory over rival Oklahoma, continues his run and eliminates the no. Â° 9 of the Baylor Bears in the Big 12 Championship Game at noon ET on Saturday. The Cowboys have been one of the best teams to support college football this season, covering the gap in nine of their 12 games.
They have won the last two meetings between these teams, including a 24-14 victory over Baylor earlier this year. Senior running back Jaylen Warren ran for 125 yards and two touchdowns in this game, which gave the Cowboys control of the tempo. Baylor quarterback Gerry Bohanon completed just 13 of 27 assists against the Oklahoma State defense in the loss and he’s questionable with a hamstring injury. The Cowboys cover the gap in almost 60% of the runs, while the Under (46.5) also concede almost 60% of the time.
How to make college football picks for Championship week
The model also asked who wins and covers in all other matches on the Championship Week college football schedule, and he predicts that several underdogs will win outright. You can only get every pick for every game on SportsLine.
