National Championship Same Game Parlay Strategy: Betting Alabama

It’s not difficult to envision a world in which Alabama wins this game. After all, we just saw that on Dec. 4. If Alabama is going to win, it’s not going to be a in a methodical defensive slugfest – they’re going to score their points.

In the first matchup, Heisman winner Bryce Young tossed 421 yards and scored four total touchdowns. His offensive line kept him unscathed and unsacked, which led to Young being effective in spots with his legs. The likelihood of Alabama winning this game like they won their semifinal – on the ground with Brian Robinson – is very slim.

A few spots to look for coupling with Alabama could be Alabama total team points or the over . Be cautious when betting quarterback rushing props in college, though – sack yards count against their yardage. It’s not likely that the Tide keep Young completely untouched again.

Pairing Alabama on the spread with the over would result in a +264 price at FanDuel Sportsbook. Betting Alabama ML (+120) and coupling with the point total only moves the price to +275, so it’s worth hedging your bet and taking the points with the Tide. If you want moneyline action, it’s best to take it on its own here.

National Championship Preview: Alabama vs. Georgia

National Championship Same Game Parlay Strategy: Betting Georgia

Leading up to the National Championship, sharp money has come in on Georgia. These bets moved the line moved from UGA -2.5 to Georgia -3 (current price: ). If you’re ready to fade the public, you’ll want to ensure the price is below three points, since that’s a key figure in college football betting.

The way Georgia wins this game isn’t in a shootout. Alabama is third in explosiveness both outright and through the air. Conversely, Georgia is 16th in explosiveness. The Bulldogs win this game on the back of their defense and keeping the ball out of Young’s hands. Likely, players like Nakobe Dean and Jordan Davis are going to get home and keep Young on his backside or at least back foot.

The Crimson Tide are also a feast or famine team. This season, they scored between 28 and 35 points just once; all of their other games were 40+ or under 25. Backing Georgia -2.5 would be well-paired with taking under Alabama’s total team points (25.5) or under the point total for the game.

Pairing Georgia -2.5 and under Alabama’s team points (25.5) results in a +130 price while laying the points with Georgia and taking under the game total (52.5) is priced at +232 at FanDuel Sportsbook. Given the price value, it’s worth going under the team total since the Dawgs may not need to score in buckets if they hit the brakes on Alabama’s offense.

Careful with taking props on Stetson Bennett and the rest of the Georgia offense – many of these players haven’t been in championship situations before and their performances are wild cards.
