The 2020 college football season will certainly be a different one, with many conferences either not playing, playing an adjusted schedule, and some schools cancelling football season. With that said, there are still quite a number of programs and conferences that will play. The college football futures market has dwindled, but the most popular one has become the conference futures. At DraftKings Sportsbook, winning the SEC, BIG12, and ACC has become the top futures market available, and you can wager on all three. Let’s take a look at these odds, and which teams could take advantage of the new schedules this college football season.

Odds to Win the SEC – Roll Tide Roll
|School||Odds to Win SEC|
When it comes to betting on college football, there really is no comparison than the SEC. With the top-tier talent each year, the amount of times an SEC school plays in the college football playoffs, and the NFL talent involved in the games, the SEC makes for a great football product. Alabama is the favorite, to no one’s surprise at -143. The second tier of teams in the SEC is what is interesting, as there is no real top dog this year compared to LSU last season. The Georgia Bulldogs are +300, but had an opt-out from their presumptive starting quarterback. The Florida Gators are primed for a terrific season, and come in at +700. Can their quarterback play take them over the top? We will see. LSU is coming off one of the best seasons in CFB history, but have lost a ton of players and coaches. Their odds sit at +700 to win the SEC.
Odds to Win the Big 12 – Texas or Oklahoma?

The Big 12 comes down to just two teams as far as odds are concerned. Oklahoma is the current favorite at -125 at DraftKings Sportsbook, but is closely followed by Texas at +175. After those top schools, Oklahoma State is set at +650 then there is a drop-off to Iowa State at +1000, TCU at +1600, and the rest of the Big 12. Oklahoma is the favorite, but they are primed to dominate the Big 12 again with a new quarterback in Spencer Rattler, along with a terrific coach in Lincoln Riley and a revolving door of offensive weapons. Will the Longhorns be able to stop the Sooners? Time will tell, and the matchup of the two teams will likely determine the Big 12.
Odds to Win the ACC – Clemson Leads
|School||Odds to Win ACC|
Clemson is the favorite to win the National Title, and Trevor Lawrence is a Heisman Trophy favorite as well. As for the ACC, it really is no contest. To have any futures market with a price as large as -455 is crazy to see, but it makes sense. Clemson is far and away the best program in the ACC, and if not for Notre Dame being in the conference for 2020, this would be a runaway even more so. With Lawrence returning, top running back Travis Etienne and an abundance of talent on both sides of the football, Clemson is poised to win the ACC again and make a run at the National Championship. Anything short for the Tigers would quite frankly be a disappointment.
