Ohio State vs. Oregon Point Spread, Free Pick: National Championship Game

The Ohio State vs. Oregon point spread for Monday’s big National Championship Game had the Ducks as a -6.5 favorite. Gambling911.com also has a free pick on this game.

60% to 65% of the action was on the Oregon spread while more than 85% of the money line action was reportedly coming in on the Buckeyes.

The line on this game had dropped all the way down to -5.  With so much of the early action on Oregon, oddsmakers moving the line down indicates to us that bookmakers do have a strong opinion on the Buckeyes and that’s who we will be on – Ohio State +6.5.

In Vegas and online the first ever College Football Championship has proven to be a major betting draw.

"It will be a super busy weekend," Nick Bogdanovich, oddsmaker for the chain of William Hill U.S. sports books, predicted in regard to the Saturday and Sunday leading up to Monday’s big game.

The entire 2014-2015 College Football season has been a huge success for the sportsbooks overall.

"This year the handle has simply been ridiculous," Bogdanovich said. "People want sports betting, that's pretty clear. And we want to give them as much as humanly possible to bet on."
