2023 College Football Season Bold Betting Predictions

By Hank Blaine

On August 26, the new college football season begins. It’s time for bold predictions. By bold, we mean you’re likely not to come close to seeing predictions that resemble the following. Keep reading for five of the boldest predictions for the 2023 College Football Season.

Five Bold Betting Predictions for the 2023 College Football Season

Alabama will lose three regular season games

The Alabama Crimson Tide program isn’t the same as it was when Nick Saban’s bunch routinely won National Championships. The issue could be traced to the transfer portal rules.

Saban is a recruiter first. He doesn’t transfer players as well as many of his SEC peers. Saban’s inability to transfer top talent from rivals is one of the reasons we predict the Bama program implodes this season.

Alabama will lose at least 3 regular season games. The reason will be because of Bama’s quarterback situation. Going from Bryce Young to Jalen Milroe, which appears to be the case, is a massive down step at the position.

For sure, Bama will have a great defense. But it would have to be the best defense in the nation to keep LSU’s Jayden Daniels, Texas’ Quinn Ewers, and Tennessee’s Joe Milton III from lighting up the scoreboard.

So, yep, our first bold prediction is that the Tide loses straight up to the Baton Rouge Tigers, the Longhorns, and the Vols.

Texas will win the Big 12 with an undefeated record

Speaking of Quinn Ewers and Texas, 2023 will be the year the Longhorns program returns to its past glory. Ewers is one of the top quarterbacks in the country.

The offensive line is fantastic. The defense is the best in the Big 12 and although K-State, Texas Tech, TCU, and Baylor will field solid teams, traditional rival Oklahoma won’t.

Even if Texas loses to Alabama, they will still go undefeated versus their Big 12 opponents.

Michigan will also go undefeated during the regular season

Jim Harbaugh has the Michigan Wolverines program playing like it’s the 1980s and Bo Schembechler is roaming the sidelines.

Michigan is loaded on both sides of the ball this season. Returning starters pepper the offense and the defense. Blake Corum, Michigan’s excellent running back, returns. So does quarterback JJ McCarthy.

Almost as important? Michigan doesn’t play Wisconsin this season and the Wolverines get Ohio State in Ann Arbor. Michigan goes undefeated during the regular season.

Tennessee will lose the SEC Championship Game to LSU

Like rival Alabama, Georgia must replace one of the greatest quarterbacks in their history. The lone reason the Bulldogs beat Ohio State in last season’s CFP Semifinal is because of Stetson Bennett.

Who will play quarterback at Georgia? Who knows?

Jayden Daniels will be better than the player UGA starts under center. LSU may be the better team overall, anyhow. It doesn’t get any bolder than saying Georgia loses to Tennessee and the Vols play and fall to LSU in the SEC title game.

The College Football Playoff will be LSU, Tennessee, Texas, and Michigan

Although Tennessee loses to LSU in the SEC title match, it will be Tennessee’s lone loss of the season, which means the Vols and the Baton Rouge Tigers make it to the CFP.

Texas will dominate the Big 12. They’re in. Michigan will trounce Ohio State in their final regular season game and then beat the Wisconsin Badgers in the Big Ten title game. So the Wolverines are in.

LSU, Tennessee, Texas, and Michigan will make it to this year’s College Football Playoff.
