Week 12 of the college football season is when star players shine. The following two weeks are critical for the majority of the teams in the country.
Some programs are fighting for a College Football Playoff bid, while others just want to hit six wins to make a bowl game. As we have done the past few weeks, there are many chances to bet overs for star players.
We break down our favorite props every Friday for the Saturday games. Don’t miss out, and check back weekly, as we’re 15-9 in the past six weeks!
The Tennessee Volunteers have a great opportunity on Saturday. They will host the Georgia Bulldogs, the #1 team in the nation. Georgia has looked unstoppable as of late, and we expect them to continue dominating their opponents against the Volunteers.
Despite this, there are ways to bet on Tennessee, which can be done through prop betting. Joe Milton has gotten better by the week for the Volunteers.
Milton still has a lot of flaws, but he has a powerful arm, and we expect Tennessee to take a lot of shots down the field. If Georgia gets up early in this game, the Volunteers must throw the ball to stay alive.
Milton’s passing yards prop is shallow because of how well Georgia has played in the secondary this season. The Bulldogs have the best passing defense in the SEC, allowing just 181.3 yards per game. Yet, this must be taken with a grain of salt as Georgia has also played a straightforward schedule.
Their win total was set at 11.5 heading into the season, which shows how easy their road was expected to be in 2023. The Bulldogs secondary has an advantage over Milton, but the quarterback can still sail over this total if Tennessee plays from behind.
Milton has gone over this total in four straight games. This includes a 271-yard performance against #11 Alabama, which has a top secondary amongst SEC teams. Look for the Volunteers to play with nothing to lose, leading to explosive plays.
Caleb Williams is going to be the first pick in the NFL Draft. Williams is one of the greatest quarterback prospects of this generation. This narrative still holds despite a disappointing season from USC.
Williams’ stats aren’t as good this year as when he won the Heisman in 2022. However, he has still put up big numbers, and this should continue against UCLA on Saturday.
USC is forced to throw the ball on nearly every drive because their defense is so bad. Lincoln Riley’s team has fallen behind in games consistently, and catchup play means throwing the ball.
Williams’ total is 292.5, which is low for the quarterback. Caesars has this total lower than any other sportsbook. Ten yards on a passing prop is very significant, so remember when placing your wagers.
Williams went under this total last week by a yard, but before this, he threw for 312 and 369 yards against Washington and Cal, respectively. UCLA only allows 219 passing yards per game, but the Trojans will have no choice but to pass.
Cameron Ward is one of the most underrated players in the entire country. He should have much notoriety coming into 2024 because of his stats this season.
The quarterback has thrown for 3127 yards with 20 touchdowns and five interceptions in 2023. The TD:INT ratio has been excellent, and it is a sign he is protecting the football.
Ward has a massive total this week against Colorado. The line is set at 323.5 yards, but this is because of the Buffaloes defense. Colorado has been one of the worst passing defenses in America, and we expect this to continue on Friday.
Colorado allows 292 passing yards per game and has been dominated through the air. Ward could have his biggest statistical game of the season.
