NCAA Football: CFP National Championship-Clemson vs Alabama John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

There are 39 FBS bowl games between Dec. 16 and Jan. 1, and the College Football Playoff National Championship is Jan. 8. If you’re into sports betting or just like reading odds, this post is a collection of odds for the 39 bowl games we have matchups for now. Two of those don’t yet have odds posted — the Military Bowl and Armed Forces Bowl — because participants Army and Navy still have another regular season game.
