Which schools are favored to win 2022-23 College Football Playoff?


As July winds down, that can only mean one thing: the new college football season is coming.

The 2022-23 college football season kicks off on Aug. 27 for “Week Zero,” so the electric stadium atmospheres and high-scoring affairs are not too far off.

And while the beginning of the new campaign is always exciting, so is trying to determine the four teams that will compete in the College Football Playoff for a chance to win the national championship. 

Last year saw No. 1 Alabama, No. 2 Michigan, No. 3 Georgia and No. 4 Cincinnati make the cut, with the Bulldogs topping the Crimson Tide 33-18 in the national title game. 

Who will the four schools be in 2022-23? Here are the favorites to make the cut, with all odds provided by our betting partner, PointsBet:
