Of course, when there's a big game, you can count on BetOnline to have scores of props connected to it, and Monday night's showdown between the Georgia Bulldogs and Alabama Crimson Tide is no exception.
At Prop Builder you can wager on a whole slew of different things happening. And we are going to take a look at just some of them. So let's get started.
First of all, to win the MVP award in the game, the two quarterbacks are the co-favorites. Both Bryce Young and Stetson Bennett are listed at +180, and if you consider that Georgia is listed as the favorite in this game, you might figure you're getting the best of it with their quarterback. But remember that Young is the Heisman Trophy winner, and Alabama is not that much of an underdog.
Other contenders in this category that include Will Anderson Jr. + 700, as he is potentially the most disruptive force on the defensive side of the football for Alabama; Crimson Tide running back Brian Robinson Jr. at + 1200, although we're not sure he's going to do a lot of business against the Georgia defensive line , certainly not as much as he did against Cincinnati in the national semifinal. Alabama wide receiver Jameson Williams is at + 1200, and remember that he averaged 20 yards a catch on the season, but might get some extra attention because John Metchie, who had 96 receptions for Alabama this season, is out with a torn ACL.
As far as George's top offensive weapons are concerned, Brock Bowers, one of the more dependable tight ends of the country, is at +1000, with the backfield represented by James Cook at +1400 and Zamir White at +1800.
Young is expected to throw for more yards in this game. So BetOnline has him with an over-under of 310.5, while Bennett, who averaged over ten yards per attempt during the regular season but only 7.1 against Alabama in the SEC Championship game, is at 254.5. You will lay - 114 either way on those props.
The ground game is not expected to be anything that dominates matters here, and Robinson of Alabama has an over-under of 63.5 rushing yards — again with -114 either way. As far as the receiving yardage is concerned, we would expect Georgia to try to take Jameson Williams out of the proceedings, so we wonder whether his over-under on receiving yards, which is posted at 110.5, might be a little high.
There are some other interesting propositions as well. You can get paid off at a price of + 400 if one starting quarterback or the other does not finish the game. It's - 700 that's such a thing won't be the case. But remember that Georgia has a capable backup behind center in JT Daniels, who was heralded as a possible Heisman Trophy candidate before the season started.
Will either side reach 50 points? Well, Alabama had 41 points the first time around, but we would not necessarily be expecting a repeat of that, or for them to improve on that performance. And that is reflected in the number; you would have to lay -1200 that neither team reaches the half-century mark
The over-under on how long the national anthem will take is 124 seconds, and you'll be laying - 120 either way on that one.
One of the props you might have to wait a while to get paid on involves which of these two sides wind up with the most first-round picks in the NFL draft. We are assuming it is the 2022 NFL draft, and Georgia is a favorite at - 150, with Alabama at + 110. To most college football betting aficionados, it is known that these are the top two teams in terms of recruiting on an extended basis.
Then there are some cross-sport props. The total of points Donovan Mitchell will score for the Utah Jazz against the Detroit Pistons is favored at - 175 over the number of completions that Bryce Young will have (+135). And it's - 120 either way on whether the number of assists Kevin Durant of the Brooklyn Nets gets against Portland is going to be greater than the number of passes Jameson Williams catches.
So as you can see, there are a lot of ways to find some fun with this game, other than simply going with the pointspread or total. But speaking of totals, we will leave you with the team point total for both Georgia and Alabama. The Bulldogs are at27.5, and the over in that one is a -120 favorite (-110 on the other side). Alabama's team total over-under is 24.5 points, and you will go - 115 either way.
