It’s conference championship weekend, with some teams playing to get into the College Football Playoff, some playing to get into New Year’s Six games, and some playing for a trip to the New Orleans Bowl.

For college football betting fans, last year’s championship game results offer a mixed bag: favorites covered in three, underdogs covered in three, and three more pushed.

In the 10 games on this year’s slate, six are rematches from earlier this season, and one is a rematch from last week.

ACC Championship 2018 Odds

Clemson (-26.5) vs. Pittsburgh

ACC Championship 2018 Preview

Clemson is the biggest favorite of the weekend, but the Tigers suddenly have some serious defensive concerns after allowing South Carolina quarterback Jake Bentley to pass for a career-high 510 yards Saturday in Death Valley. Pittsburgh seems ill-equipped to take advantage, given the Panthers’ run-heavy offense.

American Championship 2018 Odds

Central Florida (-4.5) vs. Memphis

American Championship 2018 Preview

Although UCF maintains longshot hopes of crashing the playoff, the Knights have more pressing issues after quarterback McKenzie Milton was lost for the postseason with a knee injury last weekend.

Second in the American in passing yards per game and a starter for 31 of UCF’s last 32 games, Milton’s absence now forces backup Darriel Mack Jr. into action. The Knights are riding a 24-game win streak that includes a 31-30 victory over Memphis this season.

Big Ten Championship 2018 Odds

Ohio State (-14) vs. Northwestern

Big Ten Championship 2018 Preview

The Buckeyes suddenly appear at the doorstep of the College Football Playoff after their rout of rival Michigan. Ohio State lost starting offensive lineman Demetrius Knox with a foot injury in that game, but otherwise the Buckeyes’ attack is rolling after quarterback Dwayne Haskins dismantled the nation’s top-ranked defense.

Northwestern is a nice story, and half its student body is going to the title game, but the Wildcats lost to Akron early in the year and still rank 107th nationally in scoring offense.

Big 12 Championship 2018 Odds

Oklahoma (-7.5) vs. Texas

Big 12 Championship 2018 Preview

Oklahoma has remained in the playoff hunt despite chronic defensive issues that rank the Sooners last in the league in both scoring and total defense, and led to the firing of coordinator Mike Stoops in October. The tipping point there was the regular-season game against the Longhorns, who outlasted Oklahoma 48-45.

Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger has battled a shoulder injury, and was perhaps still feeling the effects of it in a sloppy regular-season finale against Kansas.

Pac-12 Championship 2018 Odds

Washington (-4) vs. Utah

Pac-12 Championship 2018 Preview

Washington’s defensive front shut down mustachioed gunslinger Gardner Minshew in a victory at Washington State that knocked the Cougars out of the playoff picture. Meanwhile, Utah rallied from 20 down to stun rival BYU.

The difference may be the Huskies’ defense, best in the Pac-12, which shut down Utah in a 21-7 victory in September.

SEC Championship 2018 Odds

Alabama (-13) vs. Georgia

SEC Championship 2018 Preview

The Crimson Tide won every SEC game by 24 points or more, and quarterback Tua Tagovailoa has thrown for four or more TDs in five games, a school record. The title game is a rematch of last season’s national championship, which Alabama won in overtime thanks to Tagovailoa’s heroics off the bench.

Conference USA Championship 2018 Odds

Middle Tennessee State (-2.5) vs. UAB

Conference USA Championship 2018 Preview

It’s a rematch of last week’s regular-season finale, which the Blue Raiders won 27-3. The Blazers’ offense managed just 89 yards, with star running back Spencer Brown limited to one carry due to discomfort, three starters out on the line, and quarterback A.J. Erdely struggling after missing three games with a shoulder injury.

When is the 2018 Conference USA Championship Game?

Saturday, Dec. 1, in Murfeesboro, Tenn.

MAC Championship 2018 Odds

Buffalo (-3.5) vs. Northern Illinois

MAC Championship 2018 Preview

Buffalo won four straight games to open the season, then capped the best campaign in program history by reaching the MAC title game. Northern Illinois and Buffalo are the top two defensive teams in the league, but the Huskies are next-to-last in scoring, averaging just 19 points per game.

Friday, Nov. 30, in Detroit

Mountain West Championship 2018 Odds

Boise State (-3) vs. Fresno State

Mountain West Championship 2018 Preview

Boise State and Fresno State are very familiar with one another, gearing up to play for the fourth time in the last 12 months. The Broncos have won seven straight behind defense and tailback Alexander Mattison. Jeff Tedford took a 1-10 Fresno State program and has won 10 games in back-to-back years, this season behind a defense allowing 13 points per contest.

When is the 2018 Mountain West Championship Game?

Saturday, Dec. 1, in Boise, Idaho

Sun Belt Championship 2018 Odds

Appalachian State (-17.5) vs. Louisiana-Lafayette

Sun Belt Championship 2018 Preview

Appalachian State’s FBS transition reached another milestone with its trip to the inaugural Sun Belt title game, and the Mountaineers are expecting a big crowd at Kidd-Brewer Stadium. Lafayette seems a level below an opponent that took Penn State to overtime and briefly appeared in the AP Top 25.

When is the 2018 Sun Belt Championship Game?

Saturday, Dec. 1, in Boone, N.C.
