Breaking Down Every Game on the 2023-24 College Football Bowl Schedule

The 2023-24 college football bowl season is almost upon us. From Dec. 16 to Jan. 1, fans are gifted with a near constant drip feed of games pitting schools from all around the country against one another with various trophies and other awards on the line. We’ll see a coach bathed in mayo and one winning team celebrate by consuming the first edible mascot (a giant Pop-Tart) in sports history. Another victorious program will take home a literal bowl full of oranges.

That’s just a small sampling of what’s in store during the weird, wacky and wonderful Bowl Season. As one might expect, there’s plenty of betting opportunity as well. Lines are set early for every bowl game, but between the transfer portal, coaching changes and opt outs for the NFL Draft, there could be a lot of change between now and when the games are actually played.

Still, there’s plenty of value in getting an early look at the odds. There’s a bounty of prolific games that have interesting projections, including both College Football Playoff Semifinal matchups. No. 1 Michigan is a very slight 1.5-point favorite against No. 4 Alabama, while No. 2 Washington is actually a 4.5-point underdog against No. 3 Texas.

Here’s a deep dive into the lines for every bowl game coming up over the course of the next month-plus.
