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 BetOnline Sportsbook.

Current Record: 19-20

Prop #1: Ohio State/Utah – First Score O/U 5 Minutes

The Game: January 1, 5 p.m. ET
The Prop: Will the first score be OVER/UNDER the five-minute mark?

Both of these teams are offensive powerhouses with OSU finishing first in total offense in the nation while Utah finished 18th. 

That bodes well for this game to reach its total of 64, the highest of the New Years Day bowl games.

With that many points projected to be scored, we like the UNDER for time elapsed for the first score of the game here.

The Pick: UNDER 5 minutes for first score. (ODDS -106)

Prop #2: Ohio State/Utah – Either Team To Score 40+ Points

The Game: January 1, 5 p.m. ET
The Prop: Either team to score 40+ points?

Since we think there will be plenty of points early and often in this one, why not double down and take either team to hit 40+?

Utah hit 40 points three times this season and scored 34 or more points in five other games.

Meanwhile, OSU scored 40+ eight times this season including six times over 50. 

At -104, the odds are pretty attractive here that at least one of these teams will do it.

The Pick: Will either team score 40+ points? YES (ODDS -104)

Prop #3: Kentucky/Iowa Three Straight Scores By Either Team

The Game: January 1, 8:45 p.m. ET
The Prop: Will there be three straight scores by either team?

These are two quality teams that are pretty evenly matched, and neither are known for their explosive plays or offense in general. In fact, both ranked inside the top 25 in total defense, and this game has the lowest total (44) of the New Years Day bowl games.

The odds are super attractive on this prop considering such a low score is to be expected and both teams play so well defensively.  

The Pick: Three straight scores by either team? NO (ODDS +167)


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 refered to as a “proposition” wager, and though these bets are often for entertainment purposes, they also give opportunity to hone in on a 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 foul? YES +110
