Three alternative ways to wager on the CFP National Championship betting odds | News Article by

The College Football Playoff National Championship is an all-SEC affair when the Georgia Bulldogs take on the Alabama Crimson Tide Monday night.

Oddsmakers have pegged the Crimson Tide as 3.5-point favorites, with early money showing up on the Bulldogs, who will have a slight home-field edge playing inside the brand-new Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

A game this big can’t be contained to just betting the pointspread and total, and has answered the call of a CFP-thirsty audience. You’ll find a long list of alternative CFP ncaa football betting lines, and these are the best ways to wager on them Monday night:

Team to score first
This prop could come down to which team takes the ball first. Alabama head coach Nick Saban does have a tendency to defer the kick to the second half – thinking a three-and-out from his top-ranked defense sets up his offense for better field position and you get the football to open the third quarter – so the value could lie with Georgia, priced at +110.

Alabama, which is a -140 favorite to score first Monday, scored first in 10 of its 13 games this season, save for the meetings with Texas A&M, Mississippi State, and Auburn. Coincidently, the Tide failed to cover in each of those games after falling behind and lost outright to the Tigers in the Iron Bowl.

Georgia opened scoring in nine of its 13 contests, getting beat to the punch against Notre Dame in Week 2 and Kentucky in Week 12, as well as in the SEC title game against Auburn and that unforgettable Rose Bowl with Oklahoma on New Year’s Day. However, unlike Alabama, UGA has stormed back in those games, not only winning outright but covering the spread in all four matchups.

Will there be a defensive/special teams touchdown?
You have two of the finest defenses in the land doing battle in the National Championship Game, with Alabama ranked No. 1 and UGA ranked No. 6. These skilled stop units make opponents pay for every mistake, but surprisingly haven’t scored much from those errors.

The Crimson Tide have two touchdowns from interceptions while the Bulldogs defense has a fumble recovery score to its credit. And on special teams, neither side has returned a punt for a touchdown nor have they scored on a kickoff return this season.

Alabama and UGA haven’t allowed an opponent to run one back this year, on a punt or a kickoff, and the teams combined for just 23 total turnovers – Alabama with only nine and UGA with 14 – all season. You don’t get this far by giving up points to the defense or on special teams, so there’s a good reason why the “No” for this prop is priced as a hefty -222 favorite with “Yes” coming back at +170.

Will there be three unanswered scores?
Part of what made the Rose Bowl such a memorable game was the Bulldogs’ comeback in the second half. Georgia was down 31-14 to Oklahoma but scored four answered times to take the lead 38-31 with 13:57 remaining in the game. The rest is history.

As good as these two defenses are, the offenses are just as potent. Alabama finished the year ranked 25th in total yards and averaged almost 38 points on the season, while UGA posted the 31st-ranked attack and scored more than 36 points per game.

Neither team will take its foot off the gas should it get up on the scoreboard and piling it on is more than acceptable among SEC foes – especially when a national title is on the line. That’s why “Yes” is priced as a -165 front runner while “No” is set at +135.
