2014 College Football Prop Bets

2014 College Football Prop Bets

Yesterday we covered some of the more interesting NFL prop bets. Today the focus shifts to college football, which has its own share of fun wagers to ponder. Now that there is finally a playoff in FBS, the 2014 season has several more storylines to follow. The power conferences still hold an advantage over the smaller schools, but an early season loss for any of the preseason favorites shouldn’t be as damaging to their title aspirations as it was during the BCS era. At any rate, here are some prop bets to consider before the season kicks off next Thursday.

Will Florida State make the 4-Team Playoff?

YES   -250

NO   +170

Unless you believe Notre Dame is a serious threat, the ‘Noles are staring down a undefeated season. As such, a playoff berth is all but a lock.

Will Ohio State make the 4-Team Playoff?

YES   +300

NO   -500

No Braxton Miller doesn’t necessarily mean doom and gloom for the Buckeyes. Playing at Michigan State on November 8th is the only tough matchup.

Will Alabama wins SEC Championship?

YES   +150

FIELD   -180

Auburn and LSU are legit challengers. Mississippi could make a massive statement against the Tide on October 4th.

Over/Under regular season wins Baylor Bears -10:

They went 11-1 in 2013 and return a loaded roster. Games at Texas and Oklahoma will be the biggest obstacles.

Will Marcus Mariota win Heisman Trophy?

YES   +680

FIELD    -1060

It seems to be a two-man race between Jameis Winston and Mariota. The latter will have to shine versus a difficult schedule that includes matchups with Michigan State, UCLA, and Stanford.

Over/Under regular season wins Notre Dame – 7.5:

Talk about a brutal schedule: Michigan, Stanford, Florida State, North Carolina, Arizona State, and USC. An 8-4 record would be the best case scenario for the Golden Domers.

Will UCLA win the Pac-12 South?

YES  +125

FIELD   -155

A Thursday night trip to Arizona State on September 25th will be key to the Bruins’ efforts. That said, it will probably come down to the November 22nd matchup with USC.

Total passing touchdowns Bryce Petty – Over/Under 32.5:

Petty tossed at least two touchdowns in every game last year. A second season in Art Briles’ offense should yield better numbers.

Total rushing yards T.J. Yeldon – Over/Under 1100:

He’s eclipsed 1100 yards in 2012 and 2013, so the Over is all but assured, barring injury. Derrick Henry will steal some carries, but with the ‘Bama quarterback situation in doubt, expect a lot of running for the Tide.

Total receiving yards Rashad Greene – Over/Under 1025:

With Kelvin Benjamin in the NFL and Winston under center, Greene should have little trouble topping this number.
