Reporting Rob Hamilton
The game has already been declared the most expensive ticket of all time by Forbes, so it comes as no surprise to see some interesting prop bets for No. 1 Alabama at No. 6 Texas A&M on Saturday.
The props below, courtesy of Bovada (on Twitter: @BovadaLV), include everything from “First team to score” to my personal favorite, “Will Johnny Manziel be flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct?”
Looking for advice? Here’s three suggestions:
- More Points Scored In: Second Half & OT (EVEN) — The odds favor the first half, but with so attention on the gameplan for each team I think it could take a few possessions before the game breaks open.
- Johnny Manziel total TD passes, rushing TDs and INTs: Over 3.5 — All three of those events seem likely, so assume they all happen at least once and you’ve hit the over.
- Amari Cooper total receptions: Over 5.5 — Cooper was held to four receptions for 38 yards by Kyle Fuller and the Hokies secondary in the opener, but with safety Floyd Raven out and the Aggies looking to shut down T.J. Yeldon, Cooper should get some one-on-one opportunities and have more of an impact in this game.
