Top Prop #1: #21 Houston vs. #4 Cincinnati O53 -110
This game is going to be watched by a ton of people this Saturday with all eyes on the potential for the first “Group of Five Team” to make the college football playoff. This game is really easy to dissect with the Houston Cougars led by their offensive head coach Dana Holgerson and with the Cinciantti Head Coach being a defensive guy in Luke Fickell. The great thing about this game for the Bearcats it seems like there was little to no conversation between their Head Coach and the other Marquee Jobs Nationally which could mean there is all focus on the prize at hand.
Both these teams are top 10 in scoring averaging well over 30 PPG, but their defenses are both top 20 nationally both averaging under 20 PPG Allowed. It really looks when Vegas dissects these games they believe this will be a cage match. I think the over will hit because I believe if it's a blowout one will score 40+ and if it is close it will be in the higher 20s to lower 30s solely based on these teams offensive prowess. There are a few times where either of these teams have put up less than 30 points with Houston scoring 30 in 10 out of their 12 games. In Cincinnatis in 12 games this season they have scored over 30 nine times. I am anticipating this game to be in the high 20 to middle 30s. I think the Bearcats will prevail in this game 34-27, and give the Group of Five their first College Football Playoff appearance. The total of this game will hit 61 total points which is 8 points over the projected total.
Top Prop #2: #1 Georgia -7 vs #3 Alabama
One of the most hyped matchup's of the whole season, it is the one loss Alabama Crimson Tide going against the undefeated Georgia Bulldogs in the SEC Championship Game. The Georgia Bulldogs if you haven't hardly heard are highlighted by their historic defense only allowing opponents to 6.9 Points per game. The Alabama Crimson Tide is led by their star Quarterback Bryce Young who has led the nations 5th ranked PPG offense humming at a 42.7 PPG clip on the season.
The key story lines to look at in this game and the reason why I am trending towards this one being a blowout is that Alabama has not been consistent all season with looking all world some weeks and very average some weeks most recently in the Iron Bowl vs a .500 team in the Auburn Tigers. The other thing that is trending me against the Crimson Tide is that their Biletnikoff Finalist and what I believe eventual winner Jameson Williams will not be featured in the first half of the game due to receiving a targeting penalty in the second half of the Iron Bowl last weekend. This is a huge loss for Alabama, because they will have to rely on some younger guys to get open against Georgia stifling Corners. Georgia has been winning games in the trenches, and the trenches for Alabama, especially on the offensive side of the ball has been a problem. Another great piece of news for Georgia is that they are going to have their all everything WR George Pickens coming back this game, and I think he will cause fits for this very exploitable Bama Secondary. When looking at all my reasons above I think Georgia will prevail and will have no problem covering this game will be a blowout by halftime. Georgia will win this game 31-6, and will go onto the College Football Playoffs as a Number 1 seed.
