Best College Football Bets: National Championship Game
Tonight’s game is a rematch of an SEC Championship game that featured Alabama topping Georgia 41-24, which encompassed an incredible game from Alabama quarterback Bryce Young. In a game that had 985 combined yards and 41 first half points, both the first half and game over/under became easy winners. Fast-forward five weeks and two dominating semi-final performances later, and the college football world gets the rematch everyone should have wanted from the beginning.
When handicapping a championship game, it is important to understand that, although these teams did play each other not that long ago, that should not overly influence the pick for tonight. With that being said, the best play for tonight is the under 26.5 first half points. This line has been holding at 26.5 all week, and getting in and out of a game like this is important. That means to place a first half wager while the teams feel each other out and get out the nerves. A bet like this allows bettors to stay away from the late-game scoring or spread heartbreak. As far as the spread is concerned, the sportsbooks have it set perfectly. This game is an even matchup, which could truly be a coin flip, and thus no official play will be coming on the point spread.

With these lines being so sharp, it is important to ensure the number is 26.5 or higher when placing this wager. This under may feel low to some after last month, but what many people do not realize is Georgia took Alabama’s best punch and will be much more prepared this time around. The Georgia defense will generate more pressure on Young and should be able to force him into inopportune mistakes, paving their path to winning this game. The Georgia defense was embarrassed on national television and will look to be the dominating unit that decides this game. Both defenses have the ability to control this game, and that will be the case from opening kickoff. From a bettor’s perspective, sit back and enjoy a first half where both teams feel each other out before scoring picks up in the second half.
