What are the best bowl games to bet on? 

There’s no single bowl game that’s above the rest when it comes to wagering, but several are ahead of the pack for general attention. Here’s a look at the most popular games during bowl season. 

New Year’s Six bowl games

The New Year’s Six is the commonly used name for the bowl games that carry the most clout. The six annual contests are the most prestigious bowls on the menu and will take place in prime viewing spots. 

Beginning in 2014, the six bowls were designated as rotating hosts for the College Football Playoff semifinal games. Last season’s CFP games were the Rose Bowl and Sugar Bowl.  

College Football Playoff

The College Football Playoff began in 2014, with the goal of crowning a true national champion on the field of play. Beginning in the later part of the regular season, the CFP selection committee begins releasing rankings of the teams that are in the hunt. 

Once the season comes to a close, the committee unveils its final rankings. The playoff field has been just four teams since its inception. Beginning with the 2024 campaign, however, the CFP will expand to 12 teams. The games that make up the CFP are among the most anticipated sporting events of the year, as well as some of the most heavily wagered on. 

This past season’s national championship game took place Monday, Jan. 8, 2024, at NRG Stadium in Houston, with Michigan defeating Washington to claim the title.

Which college football teams have the most bowl game appearances?
