Today’s NCAAF Props And Picks:

Below are our best college football prop bets for this weekend. All of our selected props can be found at Bodog.

Prop #1: Northwestern vs Penn State – Kaytron Allen Touchdown (-115)

The Game: October 1, 3:30 p.m. ET The Prop: Will Kaytron Allen Score A Touchdown?

With a No. 11-ranking decorating its name, the Penn State Nittany Lions are currently favored to be the next team to break into the top 10 rankings. With a 4-0 record and scoring at least 33 points per contest, this could be the week they do it. 

Penn State hasn't gotten too much credit and that's what happens when you share the same conference as the No. 3 Ohio State Buckeyes and No. 4 Michigan Wolverines -- but, a few more wins could turn some heads. 

Senior QB Sean Clifford is looking to have the most successful season of his career, with 890 passing yards and eight touchdowns. He's built some chemistry with new faces on the team, preparing to pass on the torch. One of those faces is RB Kaytron Allen.

Allen has improved from his newbie freshman status to looking like a reliable performer, earning three touchdowns in his last two performances. Last week, his stats took a leap when he rushed for 111 yards on 13 attempts. 

Penn State hasn't seen the Northwestern Wildcats (1-3) since 2017. But, the Nittany Lions have the numbers being 7-3 overall in the last 10 meetings. Penn State knows breaking into the top 10 turns you into a threat, they won't want to drop this easier win and I think it'll be a group effort. 

According to our Odds Calculator, a $100 bet would pay out $148.78, which is a $48.78 profit.

The Pick: Kaytron Allen Anytime Touchdown Scorer (ODDS -115)

Prop #2:  NC State vs Clemson – Will Shipley Touchdown (-205)

The Game: October 1, 7:30 p.m. ET
The Prop: Will Will Shipley Score A Touchdown?

On the other side of things is the NC State Wolfpack (4-0), who will desperately try to hold onto the number 10 spot as they kick off against the stiff competition in the rebounding Clemson Tigers (4-0).

The Tigers disappointed in 2021, missing the CFP for the first time in six years. In their 10-3 overall record last season, one of those losses was courtesy of the Wolfpack -- who took the September match 27-21.

But, determined Clemson has been successful so far in redeeming itself. Being 8-2 against the last 10 annual meetings against NC State, I think they'll want to sort out last year's loss too. 

RB Will Shipley has been a leader on the field. The sophomore has earned seven touchdowns, tying him for third-most with fellow rushers in the nation. I expect QB DJ Uiagalelei to continue looking for Shipley as they compete against the highest-ranked opponent yet. 

According to our consensus data, Clemson has a 54 percent likelihood to cover the -7 spread.

The Pick: Will Shipley Anytime Touchdown Scorer (ODDS -205)

Prop #3: Iowa State vs Kansas – Jalon Daniels Touchdown (-143)

The Game: October 1, 3:30 p.m. ET
The Prop: Will Jalon Daniels Score A Touchdown?

There's a battle in the Big 12 as the Iowa State Cyclones (3-1) visit the Kansas Jayhawks (4-0), who currently top the conference standings. 

Though the Cyclones are a dominant 9-1 in its last 10 contests with the Jayhawks, I'm expecting Kansas to put an end to Iowa State's seven-game win streak against them. 

It's the first time since 2009 that the Jayhawks have opened the season undefeated after the first four weeks and QB Jalon Daniels plays a large role in it. 

After last week's 35-27 win over the Duke Blue Devils, the junior leaped into head coach Lance Leipold's arms, shrieking with excitement about the program's new era. 

Daniels currently ranks first in the nation with a 98.0 QBR, and aside from passing stats, he also leads his team with 320 rushing yards. He has pocketed 11 touchdowns, including four in Week 4's victory.

To me, this is a prime opportunity for the quarterback to showcase just how improved this new era is. Daniels is a leader, so I expect it to show on the field this week. 

According to our Odds Calculator, wagering $100 on the bet will result in a payout of $169.93, which would represent a $69.93 profit for your pocket.

The Pick: Jalon Daniels Anytime Touchdown Scorer (ODDS -143) 


What Is An NCAAF Prop Bet?

A college football prop bet is a wager that has no direct impact on the outcome of a football game.

A prop bet can be referred to as a “proposition” wager, and though these bets are often for entertainment purposes, they also give opportunity to home in on specific statistics or trends to profit off tiny bits of information.

NCAAF prop bets can range from player props, game trends or even more niche bets like the result of the coin toss or length of the national anthem.

At your online betting site of choice, NCAAF prop bets could be something like:

  • • Will either team score 3 unanswered times in the game?
  • • Will the first turnover be a fumble? OVER/UNDER 1.5
  • • Will Oklahoma commit a first-drive offensive penalty? YES +110
